On Point

Yesterday morning, Dave woke me up with a smile and said... "Come to the cottage with me... you can sit on the back porch all day and knit."

How can I resist a proposition like that? It seemed his uncle needed some help digging holes and trenches for something or other (I didn't ask - didn't want to ask - when it comes to those two.)

For the trip (about an hour and a half one way) I packed a new project:
The Monarch Shaw
l in Stray Cat - colour is Emperor. It looks very blue here - but it's really a bluey-purple.

The drive there took a little longer than normal, because Dave had to stop at every garage sale on the way.... and there were a lot......you can see what he was interested in...

But eventually, we got to Long Point, and were greeted by Charlie - the Labradoodle.
A handsome canine specimen, but also a total pansy. It took him a little while to warm up to me, but after that he didn't leave my side. (It might have been because I was sharing french fries.... I know the secrets to a man's heart...)

While I knit the day away, Dave and the boys dug.
And took breaks from digging.

And we were all serenaded by a little dove (seriously - this particular dove hung out all afternoon)And after dark...
A good ole bonfire!

After a day like that, don't you feel like the weekend's so much longer than usual?

I think that shawl's going to be gorgeous!
