Relaxing Weekend


Well the hot water tank got fixed on Friday, so off we went for a relaxing weekend at the lake. To get to the lake we have to drive to the ferry. And the ferry is about 1hr and 40mins trip and then just over one hour drive to get to Lake Cowichan. My DH and FIL got some guy time fishing in each morning. I don't know if you can see them off to the left in the picture. We had fish for dinner last night...yummy.





I made some progress on my redwork ladies, these designs are from Red Brolly by Bronwyn Hayes, really cute. I have 2 more to do. I finished a pair of socks over the weekend but my daughter got them before I could take a picture. Trust me they were a really nice lime green and turquoise variegated yarn. When I was knitting on the ferry one guy said to me "I like the colour of your socks, it's the same colour as my tiles". I'm trying to picture in my head where one would use lime green and turquoise for tiles...hmmm

I have just discovered your blog and wanted to tell how much I like what you make and show in your blog. The bag and the stitchery are especially nice. Take care.

I'm so glad that you got away for some R&R.

Your redwork ladies are darling - I have the one on the left to do and I love the one on the right.

That is a really lovely picture of the lake. It looks like it would be a nice peaceful place to spend the weekend. I have never been there.

We go to Tofino every year, maybe one day we should go there instead.
