Knitting news - and another winner!
Yes, I finished knitting the cowl for recent winner Vee in Maine.
Her little parcel is going in the mail today and heading north to
arrive hopefully before the first snowfall!
Speaking of which - I still miss those lovely years of long ago
when I lived in New England and spent quite a lot of time in
the beautiful state of Maine..........at my favorite beach,
Ogunquit ("a beautiful place by the sea" in Abenaki language)
in the summer months, and taking drives north from our
homes in New Hampshire and Massachusetts in winter
when the weather wasn't too severe but the landscape
was often snow-covered.
So the brown yarn is used up - that was Ms. Vee's choice.
At the time of the drawing I told you that Bob and I decided to
also pull a second name for later - after all I need to keep my
knitting needles clicking all the long winter months ahead
while stuck in front of the evening TV screen!
Here's the other winner.
Lorrie lives far away, also in the north - and in another country!
Bob and I had the pleasure to meet up with Lorrie and her charming
husband a few years ago when visiting another of our most favorite places,
the lovely city of Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
Many of you also follow Lorrie at Fabric Paper Thread and I know agree
when I say she is a special, beautiful, and gracious woman in so many ways.
Lorrie - Bob and I were delighted when your name popped up naming
you the runner up. . . . . .and I have the 'merlot' shade of yarn you
requested waiting for the knitting needles so will get started on your
Only three little boys showed up at the door for Halloween candy
last evening - disappointing. Recalling the years when there was a
steady stream of ghosts, witches and Ninja warriors on the front porch.
How about at your house?
November here already!
Here's to another great week ahead.
We took a short drive yesterday to look for autumn scenery.
I'll share photos soon.
