Sorry for the lack of posts for the month of February. Not only has it been what feels like a super busy month (including a trip to Ottawa to go skating on the canal and visit with old friends) but I have been having computer problems. They did a temporary fix on it so I could use it but not to do anything strenuous or it would crash again. Well it did crash yet again but the replacement part has come in and it is going to the computer doctor tomorrow (currently typing this post on Sean’s computer hence why no pictures). Hopefully this means I will be doing more frequent postings but that might have to wait until the end of March since we are moving mid-March and still have to pack!

There has been quite a bit of knitting going on behind the scenes this month. I have finished the baby blanket for Karyn’s baby girl; all that is left to do is to block it. I also have been working on my Henley with a twist and have finally gotten past the waist shaping and have split the front for the deep V neck. Sadly pictures posted will have to wait.


My package has arrived

I joined a swap on ravelry and went to pick up my package today. There were a bunch of lovely treats inside including some delicious merino sock yarn by Mountain Colours and “The Monk in the Garden” a book about Gregor Mendel who is considered the father of genetics and the reason punnett squares exist. There was also chocolate with caramel inside (swoon), the most awesome stitch markers in the world (including a little owl), another measuring tape (I can never have enough of those as I am always misplacing them) and some toys for Piper!

I am looking forward to reading the book as I can remember being introduced to Mendel in Grade 11 and thought punnett squares were awesome. Piper I’m sure is looking forward to getting her beak on those toys!
