I had been thinking of taking my bicycle, but after the first wave of sleet I decided to drive and, to make the trip economical, to continue on for some grocery shopping at Loblaws. The sale was in Portsmouth, a village founded in the 18th century, but now surrounded by the rest of Kingston. I parked at the Olympic Harbour (yes, this was the site of the sailing events for the 1976 Olympics) and had a quick look at the view across to Wolfe Island with its wind turbines.
Then I walked across King Street to the sale,
where I couldn't resist this.
Glad I got there early. I don't think it would have hung around very long. Enough for a vest or even a sweater, if I stretch it with something else. It's really more purple than blue. The colours are a little distorted in the photo.
On the knitting front, I'm still playing with different welt patterns.
I'm especially attracted to Barbara Walker's "All Fools' Welt"--an 8-row welting pattern with only one row in purl. It's in her first Treasury, if you feel like checking it out.
