What! Not Another One!

No more Woodland Fairy Mushrooms - just some regular style fungi.

I have had a very productive weekend.  It allowed me to move up the release date of the Second Pattern of the New Year.  This productivity has been fueled by the knowledge that I have a list of things that I want to accomplish this year and the need to “clear the decks”  to start working on that list!

The Retreat and Spring Classes are fast approaching, I need to finish the knitting and start the writing.  I have to knit up the sample for Abbott Smith – he will be teaching the retreat this year – we will be working on a Double Knit Fair-Isle Scarf in the Rowan Fine Tweed.  It will be gorgeous!

Second Pattern of this year – the fair-isle patterns from last fall.  An E-book this time, “Hands of Shetland”, consisting of three fair-isle projects, Skye Gloves, Sandstone Fingerless Mittens and Peat Fingerless Mittens!

Tonight or tomorrow morning I will finish the Sample Sock (it didn’t help that I had to rip out over an inch of instep last night and then reknit!) for the Spring and by the end of the week the sample bag.  That will leave me time to restart Patina and work on the retreat project…..Whew!  Could someone please invent extra hours that did not require extra sleep!

This morning we walked at Neck Point.  The skies were trying to clear.  Not very successfully, but there was no rain and it was a glorious day to walk by the ocean and through the quiet Aspens.  I looked in vain for more of the Fairy Woodland homes and did not find any at Neck Point.  Just your garden variety type mushroom.

Lots of birds, Ducks, some Harlequin Ducks, Cormorants, Gulls and Eagles.  There were two Eagles, soaring in the updraft currents overhead, swooping and circling.  The Cormorants were on the rocks, sharing space with the gulls and ignoring the water splashing over their perches.  The tide was high and the wind was brisk.

Eagles soaring lazily overhead!

We crossed the Inner portion of the point, we don’t often go there.  I had forgotten how beautiful the Aspens are this time of the year – the silvery trunks contrasting with the red branches of the brush below.

It was a beautiful walk.

Happy Knitting
