School starts again soon...taking more classes at NSCAD....but I am in Ontario. The drive back with Mum and the cat was smooth enough (except we still can't find the Le Chateau Outlet...any help?) unfortunatly Ginny the pussycat had to stay in her cage (she broke out of the cat carrier) the whole time. Why? Because this is her favorite spot in the car:

So soon I'll head back on the train. It's a beautiful trip and a perfect way to see the Canadian wilderness. Case in point: New Brunswick last winter:

lol I always watch for that sign but I have yet to see any proof of a restaurant. So on to one of the summer's wooly adventures. In like a week I met the Fleece Artist (at her home/studio in Laurencetown NS) and went to Gaspereau Valley Fibres. I don't have any pictures of Fleece Artist (we didn't excpect to stumble into her studio coming back from the beach) but here's a friend my aunt and I made at Gaspereau:Image hosted by

Here's the fabulous inside of the shopImage hosted by And what I bought:Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by The huge ball of slubby is Fleece Artist and already well on it's way to becoming a jacket for submission. All v.hush hush don't you know.

ps The insane video I mentioned has gone to air. You can watch it live here.but the streaming really sucks. If you make out a dwarf kicking it royaly in an orange skirt c'est moi. I work it out (really working out frustration over goddamn IK Flower Casket Shawl I took w/ me that day.)

I will go now, the little man I see when I close my eyes is telling me I have to get back to my 1,000+ UFOs and OTNs.... Posted by Picasa

Hi Morg,

Can't wait for you to get back! So jealous about the yarn shopping, I'm so on a self imposed moritorium on yarn purchases for a bit. Were you at conrad's beach or lawrencetown? Can you really just drop in at fleece artist? - I've passed her house at least twice this summer.

Oh, I checked out the video - my computer plays it a little on the blurry side, but I'm SURE I caught glimpses of you!

I don't think you have to credit. You can always check and see how old the pattern is. I know that if it's been around for a while, it's free domain! And I am glad I could be of service! It was nice to actually put that book to use for once!
