Snowing and a Barn

We went for a walk down the road allowance near my mother’s near Meyersburg (and cleared some fallen branches while we were at it). It started to snow when we were nearing the old barn on the edge of her field.

Tweed Triangles Hat

leave a comment »

I had some leftover yarn from my tweed triangles sweater and thought it would be enough to make a hat. My first attempt was too tight so this version has slightly more stitches and fits well.
I knit a long band in the sweater main colour and folded it over and joined it so that area is double thickness and stays in place. Then I knit 10 repeats around of 6 + 1 coloured triangles. I knit four sets of triangles and started decreases in the fifth one; at first I decreased 1 stitch per triangle every third row, then every second, and then for the last five rows, every row. See Ravelry for more details.

Now I still have a few leftovers of this yarn but I don’t think it’s enough to make anything on its own. Perhaps once I get a few more scraps that are the right weigh, I can make some mittens.

Cedar Grove

My brother mentioned playing in this small cedar grove on the northeast side of the creek when he was visiting so I decided to head there today. The snow is still quite minimal and a bit of golden hour light shone through the edge of the forest.

Water flows down the creek and ice forms on rocks on a grey day.

Sun and Tree

Upstream on Cold Creek there is an island that seems to be covered in Manitoba Maples (Acer negundo), perhaps my least favourite tree.
We only got a bit of snow the other day, not enough for skiing, but it has since turned cold. Today we lost electricity while some maintenance was being performed and while it was out, I bundled up and tromped upstream to enjoy icey views and listen to chunks of ice float down the creek.

Ash by the River

As we drove north this afternoon, I watched the evening sky. We stopped at Meyersburg for a few photos beside the Trent River and I noticed the tall trees growing beside it are ash. They are loosing their bark, likely due to the emerald ash borer, and their tops will soon start to fall.

The red pines growing in this area of the south field are getting larger.
