Warning....picture heavy

What a weekend.
First I went to the Alpaca farm to pick up the aran sweater so I can change the collar. Then a BBQ with Miss "P" and family. Not much knitting getting done.
Jenn and I talked about knitting but nothing was knit.

Saturday morning came and my daughter and I were off to The Needle Emporium to pick up Julie's bag so I could make a lining for it.
I managed to take a couple of pictures of the store, but got so carried away with touching everything and trying to decide what to buy, that I only took 2.
I'm sure you can understand my dilemma. Check that white cardigan out on the right side.
Fall project, perhaps?

Then Roko and Melo came out for a belly rub. How could we resist? I'm a sucker for a furry face.

I did show some restraint though, and only came home with one bag of yarn.
This morning it was Mr D's day, so off we went to Bass Pro shop in Vaughn. Can you hear the excitement in my voice?

You know your in trouble when you see a giant fish on the roof and a lot of men in camouflage.

So I took along my bag'0'goodies from Julie's and got a lot done. It's a new shawl pattern from Naturally, using Dawn 50% wool and 50% silk. I'm even trying out the new Addi lace needles. They are certainly living up to their reputation.
Notice the package says "Knit faster". There's nothing quite like travelling knitting.

We had a doggie pit stop somewhere around Elora, and found this old train. I tried out the zoom on my new camera. Did I mention I love barns!

Then it was back home to finish up Julie's bag.

All ready for the Knitter's Frolic this weekend.
I think I might need another day off, this girl is worn out.

Your weekend looks like it went as nicely as mine did. Yarn, fresh air, sunshine, knitting, family, walking. I didn't have a doggy to pet tho. Hey, what a wonderful time huh?

The shawl and bag look wonderful. You sound as though you have been awfully busy, and I am would have taken my knitting to the fishing place too, which I am sure my partner would absolutely love to visit.

I love the shawl and the bag is really pretty. Sounds like you had a nice weekend (though the fish place sounds like a real low point)
