Pennsylvania Report

Got here safe and sound, and with knitting.
A skein of Lorna's Laces sock yarn has gone afield... hopefully it turns up somewhere.

My new roommate's new-ish girlfriend is a knitter.

Ok, I'm moving tomorrow... out of the country again.

So there will be real posts soon, promise.

Land of the Silver Birch

I have had this song stuck in my head for a week now.

Therefore, I present to you a musical/photo retrospective of my week in Temagami (Northern Ontario, an hour north of North Bay):

Land of the silver birch,

Home of the beaver

Where still the mighty moose wanders at will.

Blue lake and rocky shore,

I will return once more.

Hi-yi-ya-hi-ya, hi-yi-ya-hi-ya, hi-yi-ya-hi-ya ha.

Real knitting post coming soon. Birch is birching away, but looks the same in photos.

Oooooh, Fiddlesticks Knitting has a couple of new shawls out.

Paisley Long Shawl is my favourite: (don't forget to click on the details page)

Don't you love it?

She's growin'

Well, all the car time I've had has really helped with my progress on Birch:

I think she may have grown. (Please excuse the photo, I'm ready for bed and this is the best I can do right now...)

I'm officially three-quarters done, and still loving every stitch!

Just don't ask how I will ever block this thing...
