Ice Dogs and New Knits


I finished my new Niagara Ice Dogs sweater, just weeks before the first game.  It features Bones and the team colours.  Made of superwash merino from Elann, it should keep me warm watching the Dogs play this year.

 Sneak peek at the newest pattern, It is a garter stitch shoulder shawl, with short flags along one side.. It will be done and posted within days.  Very easy.
 This one is a longer project, that I have been working on and off for several months.  It is a blanket, worked in a wave pattern out of a lovely soft cotton from Elann.  It should be finished in a few weeks and the pattern will also be posted here.  It takes a long time to knit, but is much simpler than it looks with just a three pattern row repeat.
 And a bonus few photos of our recent trip to beautiful Nova Scotia.  It was a baby, mom and grandma trip that I thoroughly enjoyed.  We three are wonderful travelling companions.  Here is the rough and beautiful Bay of Fundy.
 Here baby Claire found a fish to pilot on the waterfront in Halifax.
 And anyone who has visited Halifax will know, this is "the Wave" and everyone has a photo under it.  It is clearly quite large (and Claire is clearly quite small!).

Yikes! The little guy will be washed away!

You sound like the daughter I wanted but did not have.

I golf 4 times a week and love to knit. Have slowed now due to age. 64, but still trying to keep it up. Thanks for the sharing.
