Turkey Lurkey Weekend!! | Celtic Cast On


How did That happen???? I haven’t blogged since the concert??? Soooo much has been going on this month I just haven’t had a second, never mind trying to catch up on my bloglines.

Molly and Boston are very much at home now with us. Molly has definatley developed into a dad’s girl while Boston is definately my boy. I’m quite surprised Molly took to Moose because her previous owner was a female and it was just the two of them all the time. I’m glad though that she’s taken to him and not afraid of men.


Moose and I have both been busy tackling THIS!!!


Thats 5 cord of wood sitting in our driveway waiting to be brought inside….. ugggggg but it is no more!! We worked at it a few loads at a time and managed to get it all inside before it got too cold. I can remember bringing in wood at my parents when there was snow on the ground and it was always freeeezing!!! Not this year, wood is in and ready before the leaves really started to turn.

Our assembly line process was that I filled the trailer of the 4 wheeler up at the wood pile, driving around the back of the house to the basement door, with Boston in tow, pull a cord that Moose had hooked up to the hitch of the trailer, which dumped the load, Moose would then pile the wood into the wheelbarrow, wheel it in and stack it up. Repeat this process a gazillion times!!

Glad we managed to get it all in because as of yesterday it has been super cold out! The fire is on and the wood is being put to good use.

I have been knitting through all this. I managed to pull an old WIP out of my basket and get cracking on it again. Its the Tweedy Aran Cardi I started in January……. I know I know. But I did manage to crank out the first front. Only one more front to go and I can sew it all together.


Of course other knits have been popping out at me and the Tweedy is back in the basket for now. I started the Cable Blanket found here. Its going to be for the living room, in a yummy pumpkin colour which match the decor wonderfully. When explaining to Moose what I was making with that “big” yarn  and how nice and cosy it was going to be he replied ” WOW!!! I’m sweating all ready just looking at it!” One panel is done, with 4 more to go!


This is another project thats consuming all my time that I can’t put down but I’m almost finished it so I may as well just wait and give you an nice fall FO on the next post. Its Thanksgiving today here in Canada. We’ve already enjoyed one turkey at the in-laws, today its my parents house for round two!! YUMMMMM!!!!
