Crafting On

Glad to be joining Nicole again for Crafting On...

I've almost finished working on a Seashore Cowl for myself for spring/summer with yarns from my favourite Riverside Studio and Ginny's hand dyed fingering in Hopi red and Amaranth. Ginny's peachy pink yarn reminds me of a lazured Waldorf kindergarten room. I think this cowl will come in handy while nursing and the colours are nice and soft for baby...

I've also been updating my Ravelry page with lots of baby knits for those interested.

Happy crafting on!

Keep Calm Craft On: Blue Sweater and Shawl

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On…

finished blue sweater for S, I'm so happy with it and the gorgeous Wooly Moss Roots buttons just pop against the blue yarn (I love this yarn and it's the most perfect shade of blue!)

and another finished shawl… Another gorgeous blue, mixed with rich browns. The colour is Vandyke and the yarn is my favourite for shawls, I've used it several times before. It's hand dyed Riverside Studios and her colours are the most amazing that I've ever come across. I tried adding a bit of Haiku yarn for the trim on this shawl, but then decided I preferred to just stick with the Riverside yarn throughout.

Happy crafting on!

Lately - Dernièrement

lots of walks in the woods

and on the beach

We were sorting through our fall woollens the other day and the kids (youngest) couldn't wait to try them on again. They bundled themselves up to go to the beach, though it was totally unnecessary!

It's wild lingonberry time! I made lots of jam over the weekend. There is nothing like freshly baked bread with (still warm) lingonberry jam! Heaven!
