Our Town

Our small town is nestled by the ocean..

..surrounded by National Parks

..and teaming with wildlife.

We are in easy walking distance to 3 beautiful beaches, all three beaches form a larger protected marine sanctuary.

It's a rugged landscape

with lots of natural beauty

 and plenty of inspiration!

Rouge Cardigan

June and July were two of the busiest and most stressful months I have ever had with Skein.  Late orders, huge workload and a completely disorganised schedule...not good!  Each night, after very long days at work, I sat on the couch, picked up my comfort knitting, switched off, followed the pattern, and this is the result..

Yarn: Skein Super DK - Rouge

Its now August and I'm finally up-to-date with orders, I've begun to organise my work schedule so I will never have a repeat of the past few months (good learning experience!), plus the best thing to come out of it all is my wonderful new rouge cardigan.
