a wrinkle in time..

i can't believe that my last post was almost 6 months ago.. we moved in the early summer to a small town of about 200 people. we are surrounded by rolling hills (or small mountains..) and the swift flowing north thompson river. we live on the cross roads of two highways, one heading up to the caribou and the other heading towards jasper and alberta..

we have a smallish house on a big piece of green. there are cows and horses just a stones throw away...but we are sorely lacking in internet access, except for the library and grama's house 30 minutes away, hence my lack of blogging.

summer was green and hot and full of swimming in the rivers and lakes..we spent a lot of sunny saturdays going to the farmers market in clearwater, just down the highway a ways, to buy fresh veggies and other fun goodies and we adopted a tiny puppy, whom we named finnegan.

Autumn came quickly and seemed to leave just as fast, but the colours of the trees and the autumn smells were lovely. Elwynn began school in september. he takes the school bus and loves it! Halloween was a clear cool night. there was a huge bonfire at the community hall and fireworks and goodies galore. elwynn was a cowboy and ngaio a very grumpy ladybug.

Now winter is here and we are awaiting the arrival of our newest family member. im 34 weeks along now. late december or early january will bring her earthside, and we are all very excited to finally meet her.

i've been knitting almost non stop since autumn blew in, so here are a few things to show for it!

You made baby socks!! I remember when you were worrying about your first ever pair of socks, and now your newborn has two ickle tiny pairs! Such beautiful stuff, she's such a lucky little girl. If there's a hug in every stitch, that's a very beloved baby.

Love to Ngaio and Elwynn

Good to "see" you back. Breaks are good, I took a year myself.

Lovely knitting as always.

I wish you well for the end of your pregnancy and a gentle birthing. Wonder if you'll have another BIG one?

Many Blessings~

Wow Fern, congratulations on the move and the new babe on the way. That is so very exciting and it doesn't seem like so long ago that i met you pregnant with Ngaio. Your knitting is so inspiring as usual. Beautiful yarns, knits and what a production. Lucky babes you've got.
Be well.
