It is the end of the year – well, just a few days left, and my time seems to be broken down into bits and pieces of “stuff”; stuff to finish; stuff to start; stuff to clean; stuff to put away – you know – “stuff”!
Christmas and Boxing day were whirlwinds of activity, punctuated by many friends and much laughter – great days. We went for walks – Sophie still needs to be walked no matter what else is happening!
We walked at odd times though, in the very early morning and in between other activities. We saw lots of birds – most of which I can now identify – I got a bird book for Christmas. Birds of Southwestern British Columbia by Richard Cannings, Tom Aversa, and Hal Opperman. It is a great little book!
One of our walks was at Louden Park. The Great Blue Heron was back! This time I took some pictures of it in Flight. It mus spend a great deal of time at the Marshy end of Long Lake.
The slide show in this post is a collection of bits and pieces from those walks!
I have finished the Fair-Isle (Skye) gloves, after the photo shoot they will go to my daughter – there was some pretty heavy-duty hinting going on! LOL! I am almost half-way through the second Peat Mitten from the same pattern.
All three gloves need the ends woven in – the least fun part of the knitting. These three patterns will be released as an E-book in January some time. Just checking the patterns out properly!
I need to finish the samples for the rest of the Spring Classes – that is my next bit of “stuff” to do!
This weekend will be busy, helping with Beth’s move to Campbell River and putting together the class schedule for this spring.
The first Workshop is on the 19th of January and is going to be the Saracen Shawl. Something more to look forward too, Fiona is busy test knitting Saracen right now to check out the pattern!.
