That's Kids Stuff, Ellen!

Ellen is a great model even when she's not really modelling.....

For the past few years my Mom has purchased table space at the Brigus Blueberry Festival to sell her knitwear and other crafts. She always asks if I want to place any knitting for sale at her table. This year I thought I'd take her up on her offer, so this week I knit a few children's items: a sweater, beanie and mittens.  The sweater is size 6 and the beanie and mittens will fit a 9 month old baby.  All knit form the same yarn (Patons Canadiana - acrylic for washability) so I thought I'd photograph it all together. Of course none of it fits Ellen, but she stepped up to the challenge with the help of a couple of clothes pins.

While doing some errands yesterday we stopped in at Pippy Park near the Fluvarium for a photo shoot.  We didn't go inside the Fluvarium because it was almost closing time, but explored the playground area, read some info boards and had a quick look around. The mosquitoes were plenty in the sheltered areas, so we didn't hang around too long!

This is a view of St. John's that I never really noticed before yesterday.
