A little marsh fun…

Since my knitting right now is still all works in progress that seem to have been in progress for…well…lets just round it off to a year haha!  I thought I would start my first post about my life on the west coast with something other than knitting!

With spring in the air and the daylight laster longer it was great to take the girls (my two dogs Parka and Juliet) for a fun evening stroll.  I just had to share these few photos since it seemed to work out perfectly as a little comic strip.  Juliet could clearly hear something in the bushes but wasn’t too sure what to do about it.

It worked out as a little mini episode of “Marsh Dogs”…maybe not as riveting as “Swamp People” but it wouldn’t need subtitle like “Swamp People” does!


One of the benefits of moving

Is rediscovering your yarn stash!  It’s like Christmas all over again!  And with having the incentive of avoiding unpacking…WELL…the knitting needles were flying!  I started and finished my Sunshine Shawl and a lovely cowl out of cashmere….CASHMERE that I had not knit up…oh the shame for leaving it for so long!!

And with my lovely new spot when the sun came out yesterday I wanted to take advantage and get some photos of my finished projects!  Hopefully this finishing momentum will continue.  I do have a certain vest that needs to be finished as well (thank you Janet for the reminder!).

Lets Celebrate!

Our last Sex and the City Stitch Night at Shelter

It’s been 2.5 years of yarn and fun here at Knits by the Sea.  And I think that deserves some celebrating!  The shop has been a place where so many of us have met, become friends, shared stories and done lots of knitting.  So lets get our stilettos out and raise our cosmos to all the fun times on September 26th at 6:30 at Tough City Sushi!  Please RSVP at the shop by calling 250-725-3700 as I will be making reservations.  And as always get your singing voices ready as we will definitely be heading to karaoke after.
