Beautiful view from Medicine Beach
the walks along this rocky beach are breathtaking...
~ A soothing scene helps to unkink the knots of anxiety ~
The seas were so quiet and calm that I could feel my body relaxing.
The views toward Vancouver Island remind me of a Tony Only painting.
The weather here has been a mix of sun and fog.
No wild winds or rain.
Feeling grateful for these gifts...
The glorious sunny afternoon was an invitation to enjoy happy hour on the deck.
Evenings are dark and lighting candles adds ambiance and warmth.
These "Ethel Wood" scented soy candles are lovely.
They are sold at a farmstand on South Otter Bay Road here on Pender.
I purchased some for our home and cottage and they have quickly become my favourite.
These wee fungi remind me of that quote from Mary Engelbreit...
"Bloom Where You are Planted"
I finished The Doocot Sweater that I started knitting before the pandemic!
The project was a steep learning curve for me...
It was quite easy knitting baby blankets, dishcloths, shawls and scarves.
Sweaters are much more complicated...
as I found out!
I have learned many new techniques and have gained confidence.
You Tube Videos and The Vogue Knitting book
as in person tutorials were few and far between.
Now I am excited to get going with my next project...
a simple sweater, very much like a shrug.
It is knit mostly using garter stitch.
When we get back I plan to go shopping for the yarn...
I am just not sure what colour to use?
Basic black always calls to me...
I discovered that knitting in a cheerful colour has been such fun!
especially using the Brooklyn Felted Tweed yarn
their yarn colours are brights and brilliant.
Seen on my beach walk at Port Browning...
a chain of rusted iron juxtaposed against a weathered log.
Seeking out and finding something on my daily walks
helps keep me motivated to continue taking steps.
Hope that you are staying healthy and finding inspiration in your daily round.
