Happy Fall! I truly do love this time of's my favourite! The leaves changing colour, the crisp cool weather, and the chance to wear sweaters.

I have finally finished my February Lady Sweater. I'm so pleased with it, there are a few mistakes, but overall I think it looks great.

I may even knit another one!
The best thing was that I wore it out the other evening to a high school band concert, and a friend of mine said she had knit the same pattern.....I was so pleased that my sweater was recognizable!

Have a good weekend!

Going Home

I went home (3 hours north of Toronto) for a long weekend to see my parents and some old friends. No kids , no husband, just me. I call it my "recharger weekend". It's always so fun, but it goes by way too fast. I think I need to add another day to my long weekend next year.

I usually do the same thing, visit my in laws, drive by our old house where my husband an I started our family, try to get to favourite restaurants for the best pizza or french fries, walk by the lake, and visit with old friends!

I'm here with two good friends in my parents backyard....we are true northern girls...we sat outside talking until 10:00pm with temperatures hovering at 8 C (44 F).
