Happy Canada Day

It’s a long weekend in Canada and we’re celebrating Canada Day! What a beautiful weekend, we actually have sunny skies and warm weather. Looking forward to spending time with my sister and her family  for a BBQ and then heading over to spend time with close friends.

I have been busy working on a few projects. I finally got around to making another Kobo case after happily gifting mine to my good friend Julia. I love making things and just gifting it out of the blue, it’s a great feeling!

I’m into the reds, love red, it’s bright and happy and I’ve used it in these three projects.

First is this great table topper

Happy Canada Day Weekend to my Canadian friends and Happy 4th of July ( coming up) to our neighbors!

All Done

The crappy weather has actually worked in my favour. I’ve been able to finish a couple of knit projects and I finally got around to making a case for the Kobo I bought myself for my birthday!

Knit cardigan with mock cable. Knit with a bamboo and rayon yarn. I love the drape.

Hand knit slipper socks with suede soles. Yarn is 100% wool.
