One week later and...

There just hasn't been much to blog about.

I showed my neighbour the Ripples cardigan for Trinity. She liked it so much she wants me to knit one for her nephew. The ripples stitch, though, in my opinion, is too girly for a little boy, so I asked her if she minds me changing the stitch. At first, I was thinking a cable of some kind, but I like this better...

It still looks rippled, which is the effect I wanted for this colour of yarn. The cardigan pattern is the same as Trinity's, just a different stitch pattern.

That's what I've been working on this weekend. We've been doing a bit of garden work, but mostly it's been a quiet, relaxing weekend with not much going on. In my mind, though...

Well, let's just say there are a lot of ideas floating around in there. One idea has to do with some Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino I picked up the other day. I'm thinking of a pair of socks in that yarn. As well, I picked up some very nice cotton yarn (did I mention this already?) for a sweater for Oceanna. At first, I was thinking cardigan, but now I'm leaning towards a pullover. The idea keeps evolving the more I think about it. We'll see where that goes.

I'm going to do something different here today. I'm going to open things up. What would you like to know about me? IS there anything you'd like to know about me? Is there anything you'd like to know about where I live? Anything you'd like to see pictures of? Here's your chance to get to know me better. If you'd like to, that is.

And, on that note, I'm off to enjoy the gorgeous day we've been given. The sun is shining and it's going to be beautiful! I hope you enjoy your day as much as I intend to enjoy mine.


  1. I think it looks so pretty. Your neighbor is going to love it.

  2. Well, since you ask what we want to know about Ev: I've peeked at your wedding photos but would love a current photo of you and John as well as the story of how you met. I'm such a nosy romantic soul :)

  3. Your neighbour is a lucky person, having you as a neighbour! I wonder how you knit - Continental or English and when you started or anything else you would love to share. I have visited Penticton area when our son ran five Ironman races. Love your wines too. We live on Vancouver Island - another nice part of BC!

  4. Came across your blog today - I am going to be visiting Penticton/Naramata next week and would like to know 2 things - yarn stores I should visit and if there are any recommendations for eating/playing for 16 month old toddlers. I have twins -
