I can't believe it is nearing the end of August already....summer has flown by. I am trying to take advantage of the great (not so hot you can't stand to be outside) summer weather and do whatever I can outside.
My afghan is finished...a new project has to be cast on! Rowan Fine Art Aran comes in hanks, so I needed to take my ball winder and swift out onto the deck!

Yesterday Hubby and I, and "the kids" took a road trip up to the Saugeen Shores area of Ontario - that's the northern coast of Lake Huron. Known for it's fantastic sunsets....it is a 2.45 hour drive....
While we were there...we of course walked the kids....
Daisy was with me....she walks very ladylike, until she decides it is time to throw herself down on the ground and roll in something really lovely (lovely to her, disgusting to us).
|We finished up our visit with Fish and Chips down by the lake....|
sometimes I just love a b/w photo!
|I'm heading back up this way in September for a workshop that I'll be leading for the Docknits weekend.|
