Champlain Tweed

Ok....happy with the result on this.  Berroco pattern Champlain with Inca Tweed.  I did make some small mods for size....I actually made the medium...ran big for me.  But the big one was no bobbles....I converted the pattern to do stitch wraps instead and am much happier.  Loved working with the yarn.

Holiday Lights

Ok....so this year Cheekwood began a new holiday tradition....in addition to the beautifully decorated trees indoors, the grounds are covered with lights....trees covered, pathways lined and softly lit pools of water.  Highly recommend a stroll through the gardens.

A Fall Retreat

Ok....so sometimes you just have to get away to knit, spin and partake of general shenanigans with your fellow fiberists.  It was a wonderful weekend in Sewanee on the mountain....just us, the wind and trees...and plenty of fibre.  Add in a little weaving, a yarn bombing and a beautiful peace banner for St. Mary's.

Spinning Mermaid Tail

Ok......so a beautiful hand painted hank from Jan at Daily Fibers....and it does look like scales from a mermaid tail....  And the spinning of it on the lake was perfect while watching for those elusive gals.

Elementary Mrs. Watson

Ok....so just using up some of the Miss Babs yarn I have left and have to say....this was a good project for it.  The knitting was fun and I'm pleased with the colours.

Mighty Mac

Ok.....so it's been a long time since I've visited or crossed this bridge...so a very exciting day for me.  It was gloomy and rainy, so the lake was rough and white caps, but so beautiful.  We crossed into the Upper Peninsula and drove along the lake to DeTour, Mi...the crossing to Drummand Island.  Gorgeous!!

The Food

Ok....you knew it was coming....yum.  From amazing crepes at That French Place in Charlevoix, to Mussels at Cafe Sante in Boyne City, to farm to table at Twisted Olive in Petoskey and Northern Table in Boyne City......it was sometimes about the food.
