More Finishes!

 I've done lots of knitting lately since most of our usual activities have been cancelled.  The saddest victim  was my volunteering at the UW hospital as the whole Arts in Healing program has been cancelled.  And I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye.😢

Before the recent lockdown, we did get to Cannon Beach, OR, one of our favorite getaways.

As you can see by the waves, it was very windy along with a King tide.

And there are still lots of bunnies that allow you to get close enough to almost pet.  The city has posted a "do not feed" law, but the bunnies seem to be surviving well on the grass!

These were for a tiny preemie who is doing OK, thankfully.

There have been quite a few babies to knit for lately.

I spent most of October on the Sharon Shawl and Cowl and have enjoyed wearing the cowl on our walks.  Have any of you tried these patterns?  I found them challenging! They were also a great way to reduce my stash a little bit.


Well, I think that's about all of my October finishes. Next time I'll share my November projects, but now I need to get back to work on the Christmas projects.  Will I ever learn to start earlier?

It's About Time That I Posted, Don't You Think?

 Where does the time go? We are fine, but it seems like the days slip by without me posting or reading any blogs.  Our days seem to be busy with lots of walks (even in the rain!) and lots of Christmas knitting on my part.  Hope all is well with each of you in this crazy time! And now I'm noticing lots of changes on Blogger.

Yesterday was was exceptionally clear.  Do you recognize this snowy mountain?

It's not always clear weather here though.  Here's the view from another recent walk! The city in the distance is downtown Seattle.

On a recent walk in the nearby woods, we were amazed to see all these mushrooms. This tree was covered with them!

Two finished projects!

On these chilly days, Ginger loves this spot under the computer right on the register when the furnace is running.

Well, it's almost lunch time and then more knitting to do, so I will sign off and do some catching up here soon.  Stay well my friends!
