end of year calm

We're enjoying a quiet week off after the excitement of Christmas and luckily the weather is fantastic (we haven't had the blizzards so many others have lately). Today was warm and bright and the perfect morning for a walk in the woods.

We're lucky to have a 700 acre oak/aspen forest and marshland right near our house, which is where we walked today with our little friend Kira who we're dog-sitting for a week. She's wonderful and fun.

and some knitting content...

When my Mom saw my Shadow cardigan she wanted one too, so I made this for her. The yarn is SweetGeorgia Yarns superwash sport in 'Blackberry'. I love this yarn and will definitely use it again. They're in Vancouver and sell roving as well as yarn bases in many gorgeous colourways.

I hope you're having a great week too.


  1. That first picture is so gorgeous!

  2. Love the walk in the woods pics. The sweater with Sweet Georgia yarn is really pretty. I'll have to check out her superwash, I'm searching for one I can love.

  3. Love the color Blackberry you used. Gorgeous! And how wonderful to have access to that big piece of nature right by your house to explore. Awesome!

  4. Wow, that cardi and the yarn are a gorgeous match! Your mom is one lucky lady. I added you to my blogroll. Happy New Year!

  5. Love the cardi, beautiful color. Happy New Year!
