Today is the first real chilly day of Autumn here, I can actually see my breath this morning, and I'm not sure I want to turn the furnace on just yet? so I'm thinking I'll do some baking to warm the place up, I'm thinking bread and rolls, and I might whip up a few batches of cookies.
I finished my Gaptistic cowl and my hat just in time I have a feeling they will get a lot of wear this year
We went to the old Rainbow Valley site yesterday Parks Canada have taken it over and turned it into park land and nature trail. we took a picnic lunch and reminisced about all the fun times spent there when it was an amusement park. we took our kids there every summer and the schools had the end of the year field trips there.It was fun to watch Cari's face light up as she remembered different things. after lunch we walked the trail and it took us directly to Cavendish beach so we just had to go on the beach and we just had to stick our toes in the water I was so surprised at how warm the water was and you know kids they jumped right in clothes and all. We are definitely adding this trail to our must walk trail list!
I finally got around to knitting with the yarn that Kelli bought for me while they were down in the US in May, the yarn came with a sock pattern. I used this pattern for the socks they were a bit too big for me so Hubby claimed them for himself, they are the perfect fit.
I only hope he will wear them, as he has a problem with my hand knits he seams to think they will fall apart!?!?
I had a bit of yarn left over and though what better way to use it up than make a souvenir for Kelli to remind her of her trip to Pennsylvania. I made her a little coffee cup cozy and the darling Bluebird of Happiness...(a great pattern and I know I'll be knitting more as ornaments for the Christmas tree!)
