Odds and Sods

I went back to Fogo Island this week. Covered in snow, this rugged landscape is still just as beautiful as it was in October when everything looked golden. (See earlier post.) In the meantime, since moving to Grand Falls-Windsor and no longer having a studio (at least for the moment) I have returned to a craft that is one of my first memories of working with fibre....knitting. As it says in my profile, I think I started knitting when I was around seven years old and I believe I learned how to knit in Brownies. Do they still have Brownies? I'm using two different sock yarns to knit this scarf. I seem destined to make scarves. :) Happy Oscar Day! xxxb

They're not lying!

I drove to Port Aux Basques yesterday. You'd think after seeing two moose on the side of the road I wouldn't be goofing around taking pictures while driving. It was such a large day...I guess I was giddy with the sunshine. There have been so many accidents in Newfoundland with so many moose on the highway. When I went to Roddickton in the fall (considered by some to be the Moose Capital of the province) I didn't see one moose. My brother pointed out that just because I didn't see them, didn't mean they weren't there. Sage advise. Drive safe where ever you are. b
