We’ve been taking full advantage of the nice weather and hitting the local trails. One of our favourites is Cardigan River Trails. Cardigan River Trails are situated behind the ball diamonds west of Cardigan. It is a picturesque wooded area that hosts a wide variety of bird and plant species.

Sweaters, Socks, and Spinning
Even though it is now officially Spring, I still want to keep on knitting all the cozy knits. I’ve been seeing swoon worthy sweaters, adorable socks, and luscious fibres on podcasts and Instagram and I can’t help but feel completely inspired. My to-knit list is becoming quite long indeed! I have a few sweater WIPsContinue reading “Sweaters, Socks, and Spinning”

From Fibre to Finished Socks
Gotland sheep wool is one of my favourite fibres to spin and knit. I don’t get to work with it nearly as much as I would like. The lustre and the silvery greys are exceptional. Those qualities are lovely on their own but when over-dyed , something truly magical happens. Vibrant colors deepen, become richerContinue reading “From Fibre to Finished Socks”
Hand Knit Catch Up
I have been a busy little bee working away on a few hand knits since I last posted about November projects. I have completed my Lunenburg Pullover by Savory Knitting and I has become a fast favourite of mine. I used the called for yarn, Lichen and Lace Rustic Heather Sport, and I fell completelyContinue reading “Hand Knit Catch Up”

I love my quiet time in the mornings. On theContinue reading “Capturing Morning Light”
We’ve had our first really good snowstorm of the year here in little old PEI. If I don’t have to go anywhere, I really do enjoy a good snow storm! Snuggled in by the wood stove with coffee and knitting, a pot of soup simmering on the stove … what could be better? Why, snowshoeingContinue reading “Snowshoe Weather”
One of the things I love most about morning hikes here in PEI is the changeable nature of the light. All of these photos were taken within an approximately 40 minute time span. We’ve got blues shifting to more vibrant colors as the sun peeked up and then shifting to grey as the snow settledContinue reading “Shifting Light”
November was a busy month for crafting. Two KALS that I was participating in ended on the 30th and I wanted to make sure that I completed my projects. My most intensive project was for the Fleece & Harmony Kate Davies Designs knitalong. I’m a big fan of Kate’s designs, having knit a few ofContinue reading “November Projects”
A Walk In The Woods
I found my new favourite hiking trail and took some photos along the way. There were so many old and beautiful hemlock, birch, maple, and beech trees. I’m really looking forward to spending more time here.
