Through My Window

I may as well fess up: I do not think I will make my end of the World Cup deadline on my Not-So-Shrunken cardigan. Then again, according to my non-conformist ways, I really should set a slightly different date say, a week after the competition ends? Sounds good to me! New deadline for those knitting with me: July 18th’ish. ‘Ish’ because in an effort to maintain our non-conformist ways, you really should pick your own date!

And a big congrats to Suzanne who has already completed her WIP for the Cup. Isn’t it gorgeous?!? See, when I grow up, I want to be just like Suzanne. Gorgeous, smart, talented and, best of all, a SUPER fast knitter to boot! Yep, that’s exactly what I want to be when I grow up.

I thought you might be interested in some pictures of where I’ve been working on my sweater since starting knitting for the World Cup competition:

Sandy Cove Beach, Gander Bay, Notre Dame Bay:

My parents' cabin in Victoria Cove, Gander Bay. I love this place. Visiting this building is like stepping back in time:

The ever present cup of tea now that I have two children and haven't seen a full night's sleep since July 4, 2007. Brand? Tetley (orange pekoe) - the perennial Newfoundland and Labradorian favourite (though my personal favourite is Twinings' Earl Grey):

Enjoying some knitting time on our drive back to Torbay from Victoria Cove.

I am working on sleeve number one and have three balls of yarn left. My fingers are crossed that the Knitting Goddess forgot that I even know how to knit....

I look forward to revisiting your blog to see you finished cardigan. I love the organic look of the silk and wool yarn you picked. It's going to look wonderful.
