Margot's cottage, located behind the main house, and Margot, pictured above (the cruise director of our little weekend away). I loved it, every inch of it's tiny, cozy cuteness.
The living room in the main house, I adore the purple accent furniture and the cool blue walls. Very French-French, non?
The beach was right THERE, right at the end of the road.
This is Chantry Breezes, our home away from home for the weekend. The covered porch on the second floor is where we had breakfast each morning. And by breakfast, I mean REAL breakfast - this was not just a bag of Wonderbread and a toaster set out for you. On the first day we had fresh fruit salad and white chocolate blueberry scones with lavender, and then two kinds of frittata with bacon. Day two was just as good, fruit salad and pumpkin spice muffins first, then oatmeal pancakes and peameal bacon. Yum!
The fruits of my labour, they are done! The top mitten is carefully hiding all of the ends sticking out from the mess of ends I have to weave in from all that colour work. That will be a good job for a quiet night at home when I'm feeling patient.
I'm already planning for my next few projects, I just placed an order for a massive amount of yarn from KnitPicks for a sweater for fuzzyhead. I ordered 22 50gram balls of Wool of the Andes worsted weight in "Camel Heather" for this sweater:
This is #17 Man's Cable Cardigan (link to a 360 view video) from Vogue Knitting Winter 2009/2010. I copied the pattern from Fruwho's copy of the magazine, and I'm so excited to start swatching! I was inspired last year by Sandi Wiseheart at my very first Knitters' Guild meeting about how non-threatening it can be to make a sweater that actually fits (and diligent swatching is key). Fuzzyhead will be my test subject, but I figure if I can nail down the process with him, then I can try my hand at making something for me with a nicer yarn.
Also, because I have no self control, I bought a Namaste Zuma bag at the same time from KnitPicks. I got mine in peacock blue, and it will be my winter purse and all-around awesome stylish knitting bag. Squee! I love getting things in the mail!
