A path leads across the dunes on Prince Edward Island
I hear it's punishingly hot across parts of the USA while bits of Canada are also suffering from intense weather—hail the size of soft balls, tornatoes, wind storms—but here in the Atlantic provinces of Canada, we're finally getting summer. Last weekend, I packed my knitting and drove off to Prince Edward Island on the heels of Wills and Kate after they had long gone. The island is sweet, simply blissful, in summer months with lobster fests and beraches and craft/art galleries and lots to see and do, including absolutely nothing.
It just so happened that my project was dune-colored, especially fitting on the terra-cotta sands of PEI. I'm in love with this stitch that forms little tree trunks and branches in a lovely, evocative manner.
