So the new blogger is ready and I still can't switch over. No idea why, and not much bothered, but I'd like to know if I'm missing out on anyting. I doubt it.
Well it's my last week in Ontario-my last obligation is this Thursday and then I'm hoping on the train (with many extra pieces of luggage filled with christmas presents and boxing day clothes that I don't need) My first order of business when I get back is to buy the 1 ball/skein I need to finish 3 UFOs. I do this every time. Then I will unpack my clothes, weep a little, and then make a charitable donation somewhere to ease my guilt over the fact that I could clothe a small country. What a visual that is.
Next I had better run some errands and return my library books to dal (yikes! I've had them a while). For supper I shall stuff myself with fresh salmon. A dear friend felt sorry for me land locked but for lake ontario and gave me two beautiful trout (one rainbow, one speckled and quite sexy looking) from her family's farm. Any recipe ideas?
So I hope I'll be back for the KOL after next. I have to be back in time for that week's Loop Group at any rate so fear not for my stitchnbitch withdrawl (it is real and unpleasant for those around me-i've heard).
I'm off to finish up my Take a Stitch Tuesday Challange #1 and Ilga Leja's amazing "Balsam" Cowl. I'm working it in a grey one ply alpaca and hope that it will look a bit like chainmail in the end.

ps wow-can't get over the great responce to the collar pattern! My counter could barely handle the sudden influx of readers lol. Cheers!

I really love the Balsam collar - Ilga's designs are amazing. Grey alpaca will be so beautiful (and elegant)!

Coincidently, Last week I was thinking about making a neckwarmer of sorts out of my grey alpaca handspun and was actually thinking about that very pattern! Eerie.

Cook those fishes in the oven with sliced lemon and fresh rosemary on top. You must.
