Notes from an islandĀ 


I am a novice traveler but I think I am flexible enough to make it work.  And of course, this place is just beautiful!  Knitting, hiking, great food, history, tradition, and lovely weather.  The only unraveling was a few rows of cuff!  The internet is not good so I will get back to regular posting next week.

Unraveled Wednesday


We left Seaburn and headed to Edinburgh on the train.  Trains and planes are wonderful for uninterrupted knitting time.  In about 48 hours, I have made great progress on my Chopped Green Ginger Tea hat.  I should be able to finish this afternoon.  I am knitting this hat with a skein of yarn brought to me from my daughter’ last trip to Edinburgh in 2015.  Seemed a fitting travel project.

In Seaburn we met up with Lucy of @lucylocketland.  She has a lovely little shop and hosted a special knit night so we could meet some of her knitting friends.  Fiber folk are so welcoming!  Lucy’s little shop is filled with beautiful wool and handmade crafts.  If you ever find yourself in northeast England, I recommend a visit.  
This morning we dipped our boots in the North Sea.  After a few days in Edinburgh we will head for Shetland.  More adventuring to come!

Thanks Kat for hosting our Wednesday’s

a new project is brewing


I was stalking reading Honore’s posts labeled Me A-Z category.  I finally asked her about this project and she shared a bit.  That triggered a memory of taking an online class with Cathy Z with that title.  I had started the class but never finished.  Now I couldn’t get the idea out of my head.  I stuck a little notebook in my bag and began making a list of words.  This morning I pulled out a photo album and counted the pages – plenty of room for an A-Z project.  I don’t know how long this will take.  I only hope I don’t lose interest.  I am sure I will have plenty of opportunities to collect stories and pictures over the next few weeks.  Best of all, I won’t need to buy anything!
