Project Season Begins



It's 'project time' here in the Maritimes!
And that means, for me anyway, knitting once again.

I usually start with a scarf to warm up the ole fingers.
That is what's below.

After this, I like to start something a little more challenging....
like a sweater. I haven't knitted one before and I have Ron
here to help me through some challenging patterns.

Do any of you have 'winter projects'?
If so, what are they?

  1. Brilliant photo. Beautiful colours and knitting. Jerry would love to learn how to knit. I would just love to have someone to make me sweaters and scarves!

    1. Being the 'farmboy' that he is, I am sure Jerry would learn very quickly, Mitchell.
      When I met Ron he was knitting a sweater that we have to this day!! He can pretty well knit anything.

  2. The colours are indeed lovely Jim - quite autumnal. My Mum is a great knitter but it looks terribly complicated to me. I'm very impressed that you can knit!

    1. Well thank you, Craig. My grandmother taught originally and then my mother 'fine-tuned' the technique......I would watch her for long periods and probably picked it up through osmosis!!
      I suppose your mom can knit socks? I tried but always have trouble at the heel. Maybe this winter I will conquer that!!

    1. I bet you can hardly wait to get back to your weaving/quilting/sewing/soap-making! Kathy, ease your way back into spinning.......hope it all goes well!.
      We have be collecting those shakers for years. They 'Tipp City', Ohio shakers and made of milkglass. We use them daily as well...very sturdy and functional.
      Have a great week.

  4. Nope. No winter projects. My spare time is spent blogging and surfing the net.

    1. Hey Ms.Debra, there's always time to learn to knit! Next time you are in town, we will give you a quickie 'Knitting 101' course.

  5. None planned, Jim, but I do some indoor photography. And if we happen to move over the winter, I'll have renovations to do, I'm sure, like lots of painting!

  6. Hi, I , too, love the colors ... and cannot knit to save my life. I took lessons, I can crotchet but just cannot knit. My "winter project" is to get this house sold and to pack up the cats and move South ... Florida but wishing it could be back to Argentina ... still working on that :)
    besos, C
    Thank you for coming by the blog ~
