All about our life afloat ... currently on a dock in the Canadian Gulf Islands.

I really have no idea how it happens that I'm only posting once a week AGAIN.
Much knitting is happening, I know that. I finished the Colorblock Thigh-Highs commission...
... so they are on their way to England today! I've also finished the first five clues of the Susanna I-C Mystery Knit-Along, and I'm loving it! There will be hundreds of bead on this one by the time it's done (even though you probably can't see them at all)!
I've completed a test-knit for a Vancouver-Scotland based team of up-and-coming designers who are just publishing their third book. I had to knit it twice to get it right, though! The first one is knit in hand-spun so the 'Rosebud' pattern doesn't show up very well (and there's a glaring error you can't see either -- but it sure is pretty, though).
Got it right this time...
We have been house-and-dog-sitting for the long weekend (it's Family Day weekend, a new holiday declared last year by our BC Premier) and Charlie doesn't respond as well to men, so guess who gets to walk him?
That's a GOOD thing! The walk was lovely, but the trees are a little eery this time of year...
Home last night, just in time to see a second ferry come in to the 'overload' spot here in Fulford -- anticipating big traffic today going back to Victoria, I guess. This ferry, on the odd occasion that it berths here overnight, is about 200' off our bow!
I have to go back to walk Charlie again this morning, then we'll be back to our routine. Whatever that is. ;-)
My hubby Michael and I have lived afloat for 16 years now, and we'll never go back to land! The last 13 years have been on our 38' 1965 Chris Craft, Wind Walker . Apart from boating, I knit. A lot. You can email me at skipper at mvwindwalker dot com .
