mist rising

Another day of mist and beauty at our place. There is nothing like a walk through the mist. Silent, still and almost mythical. It looks like this is going to stay around for the rest of the day.

The spiders have still been busy making their webs. Not that I have seen any of them around the place.

Knitting time

This is the wonderful mitred scarf that Idecided to turn into a vest. I am very happy with it. It is always good to try a new pattern and when it turns out so well I cant help but be happy.
These great felted clogs were made for hubbie. The pattern was quick and easy to make, now I want to make some for myself.
And so now I am onto my next pair of socks. It is the hedgerow pattern and I already love the way it looks. This is one of my hand dyed wools.

a slice of today

This is a slice of life at the moment. Winter is here, wonderful mist and drizzle today. Soccer rules the weekends.
The spiders were really busy last night. There must have been an explosion of baby spider births. They have been busy decorating the garden with all their wonderful webs.
Out of the mist and cool drizzle I can always find so much beauty. But I am not sure our front gate post really should be included in that group.
I hope you are all having a really great day, whether it is summer or winter in your part of the world.

World wide knit in public day

Well here we all are for our world wide knit in public day in Ross. It was a fantastic day of knitting, some spinning and lots of talk about knitting and sheep.
Ross is a great old town and a fantastic setting for a great day. There was a mix of Ravelry and non Ravelers, which was good to see. It was held at the wool centre. So a big thankyou to the ladies there for letting us use their great venue. I got to check out lots about wool and sheep inbetween knitting.
