We are on vacation at a cottage this week and don’t have the cable to attach the camera to the computer so I think we are out of luck in the picture department. We are at a very swanky cottage that has it’s own little one acre island. It also has satellite TV (which so far has been staying off), internet, a huge massive BBQ with three burners that make BBQ beer chicken fabulously easy and tasty, a well-equipped kitchen, a pontoon boat, a fire pit and the friendliest chipmunks in the world. (Pictures will follow when we are back home or if I find out Sean remembered the cable for his camera.)
The island is a bit small for nice walks, however it is great because we don’t really have any neighbours that would annoy us. It feels nice and isolated even though it really isn’t.
There has been lots of food and all of it good. Saturday night we had venison sausages, Sunday was steaks, Monday was BBQ beer chicken, Tuesday was pizza on the BBQ and today will probably be beef ribs unless we decide to go into town today. Tomorrow for Canada Day we will be having burgers.
I finished the back of Sean’s aran sweater in the car ride and the first night we spent here and have started on the front. I also brought the border for the Queen Ring Shawl and have finally completed 10 repeats (of the 208 that need to be completed). The pattern is starting to become intuitive to me so I’m not always looking at the chart and now when I make a mistake or drop stitches I can easily fix it without having to rip all the way back to my lifeline. The first five repeats were the hardest to do but now I can whip through a pattern repeat easily enough. Hopefully this means I will start making some progress but I’m sure all the Christmas knitting I need to do will slow me down on the shawl.
