Finally!

Ouf, I didn't mean to be away for so long, but for the last 2 weeks, I frustratingly couldn't access my Flickr account. I just changed computers at work, and it has caused all sorts of mahem. But fingers crossed, things are now back on track.

So what have I been up to? Well, on the labour day weekend I drove 15 hours for a completely unexpected, unplanned trip to visit family in the Maritimes. Much beach-combing, photo-taking, lobster-eating, and domino-playing ensued.

The needles have been clicking too, but I think I'll save that for another post...
Hope you all have a sweet Sunday.

Oh Nicole your beach photos are wonderful. I am green with envy for I have driven the 12 hr trip to NB often but I always end up in potato country, and would much prefer the other side with lobster and beachs. Sigh.

love the textures of the sea for knitting--i see seed stitches and cables and fresh garter stitches.
