Cape Cod 2009

Yes, I'm on Cape Cod. Today is our 31st wedding anniversary and this is where we are celebrating it. If you have read this blog for any length of time, you know that we have been celebrating our anniversary this way for over 10 years now.

Here is my little "nest" at the house. My laptop is set up on the kitchen table next to the window where I can look out at Barnstable Harbor. (Click on pic to enlarge.)

You can see my knitting sitting next to the laptop. When we are at the house, this is usually where you will find me.

And this is the view that I'm looking out onto -

The house sits about 50 yards from the beach. Across the harbor is a spit of land known as Sandy Neck. There is a lighthouse on the end of Sandy Neck but I don't think I got it in this picture.

Not a bad way to wake up, is it?

My knitting has not progressed very far since we've been here, though. I've been working on some charity items - mittens for a couple of different places and a baby sweater with matching socks for another charity. Here are some of the mittens -

This pair is made from Wisdom Yarns "Fair Isle". I bought it at Webs for $3.99 a skein. Look in their closeout section. It's a 200+ skein of 100% self-patterning wool and it's great for charity mittens and socks. I orginally bought 5 different skeins and think I need to order some more of it.

These are Patons Classic Merino wool. This has to be one of my favorite yarns.

I was hoping to get the baby socks done before tomorrow so I could post them on Sock A Month but I don't think that's going to happen. I have about 1 1/2" done on the first one. Today we are going shopping so I don't think I'll get much more done on them.

Have a good week all. Oh, I'm on Twitter now - SuefayeNY.
