Beautiful Quebec City

Last weekend my husband and I went to Old Quebec for a nice weekend away ALONE! We had never done this in the whole time we have been together, 5 years!!

All I have to say is that we will be doing this more often in the future and that Quebec city was a great choice for a quick weekend away.

Here are some pics to show you the beauty (it was a rather cloudy day but still pretty)

Sorry this post is so picture heavy! There are just so many pretty things that you should go and have a visit. I will be going back in the fall when the leaves are changing color :)

I've joined a knit along!!

Okay so I have joined my first knit along with Luvin the Mommy Hood! I am so excited to be apart of this and to watch all the great sweaters that will be produced. I am also hoping that this will help me complete this project at a reasonable pace. By joining this group I feel more confident in this project because I will have a group to go to when I run into a problem or have questions as this is going to be my first adult garment.

The pattern I choose to use was the Calligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig

The yarn is Rowan Tweed DK in Grey Mist

And here is the progress so far:

So I have completed the ribbed neck and have just started the increases for the shoulders. Everything is going okay so far. I did have to you tube how to do the M1L and M1R stiches; I'm assuming I'm doing them right but we will see as I do a couple more :S

Stay tuned :)

As you might have noticed there has been a real lack of blogging going on here about my own knitting. That is because there is a real lack of finished objects for me to show you! My husband and I are currently getting our house ready to sell so my hands are always busy with a paintbrush instead of my beloved knitting needls. Hopefully soon I will be able to get somethign finished to show you. The crazy amount of pimples on my face are a testament to the low amount of stress releasing knitting that is being done.

Hope to be back soon with something to show,
