Curlique Baby

Ok....just a really fun project to knit.  Just knit and purl, but the short rows and shaping made it interesting and fast.

















This is the best representation of the true colour

Ombre Cowl

Ok....so I tried to make this once before and got a little too fancy for my own good....and hated it.  It was horrendous...  This I am much happier with and actually finished it.  Soft and a true Ombre.

Blowing Glass

Ok....so one of the groovy things I did this trip was visit the Simon Pearce showroom and glass blowing studio.  Although I have seen glass blown before, it is always a beautiful and mesmerizing sight.  And appropriately....they were blowing wine glasses.

The Awe of Fall in New Hampshire

Ok....the last leg of my New England fall holiday was in New Hampshire....overflowing with colour, water, charm and friends.

PS....as many times as I have been up this close to the Canadians and all the signage about Moose, I have yet to see a Moose.  I'm just wondering where they are and what they're doing with them.  Bring on the Moose.

Finally....Maine

Ok....I have traveled to New England many times because I love it so much...but never been to Maine.  Finally, I got to Maine...now I have to go again.  I took a stunning and relaxing drive north on Hwy 1A and stayed at a beautiful Inn in Kennebunkport.  And what would Maine be without a bit of lobsta....Ah.....
