Yes, it was a glorious weekend of blue skies, warm breezes, and backyard aromas wafting from the grill. The perfect ending to another summer vacation for teachers and students before the early morning trek back to school today. I hope everyone was able to enjoy themselves with family and friends, whether it was relaxing in the city or at the lake.
My weekend plans took me kayaking down a lazy river, exploring little canals, and turtle watching, then a trip to Santa's Village with my nephew for the last few hours until the elves closed the gates with a giant wave, "see you next year".
Today, its back to reality, and a new sample to knit for the store. It is a chunky yarn with a rustic, woodsy feel, Tweedie by Sirdar, available in mossy green, soft grey, and natural beige. The sample is knitting up quickly on 6.50 mm needles, a Fall jacket with a staghorn cable in the centre panel flanked by single cables at each side, and a large ribbed yoke with one button.
