Fort Amherst Finally, Ellen!

I've been saying for months that I am going to visit Fort Amherst which is just a hop, skip and a jump out the Southside Road. I finally had the opportunity to do that and got a bunch of pictures to show you.  Ellen stayed at home that day because we were in between projects. Not a happy camper about that! She's a bit sulky sometimes you know, but thankfully, gets over it quickly, especially when I let her try on the cashmere vest that I am hand knitting for myself. Of course, it's much too big for her, but no matter. She's delighted with it. I have the back completed and the front started. 

Jade Sapphire Cashmere is really divine. While I'm knitting I stop every now and again to pet it. Even when I ask other people if they want to touch it, they squeeze it first, then pet it like a dog. They can't help it! Speaking of dogs, I met a handsome fella at the Pond last Saturday. His name is Jake and he was super-friendly. I even got a Doggie Paparazzi picture.

And, we're working on another machine knit sweater just like Alana's from last week. That one should be finished by this weekend so Ellen will have something to do during the weekend.  Yaay!
