Everyone is hockey crazy here...even in the grocery store line perfect strangers will be having conversations about the games. We've got to have something to make the winters go by. Now we are gearing up for maple syrup season....wild times up in here.

Joining with Ginny of "Small Things" for Yarn Along where you post a picture of what you are reading and what you are knitting. I'm reading "The Good Women of China", a heartbreaking but enlightening book about the trials facing women in all walks of life in China in the past and present. It is told by the women themselves in their letters to a radio host Xinran who hosted a radio call-in show in the 1990's encouraging women to speak on the air about their lives.
I'm knitting away at my "Favourite Things Infinity Scarf" from Ravelry. It is so much fun to search out knittig charts and pick colours from my yarn stash.

Scott and I went on a little roadtrip Saturday morning to St. Andrews-by-the-Sea a nearby town on the Atlantic Ocean. It is so beautiful there and the weather was perfect...I almost forgot it was February .
There were a few fishing boats tied up at the dock.
The whale watching tour operators were closed because the whales are usually only here from June - October.
On our way to my favourite yarn store we saw many deer eating the brown grass on the roadsides. There are tall fences on each side of the highway to prevent deer and moose from being struck by cars.
At the yarn store I saw the most expensive yarn ever...$160 for gold yarn on the bottom of this pile. It is made from fibre from the muskox which lives way up north in the Arctic. Apparently this fibre is 8 times warmer than wool. I bought a skein of mohair and alpaca, and some beautiful dyed wool from Peru.....the muskox will have to wait for someone richer than me.
