Every Tuesday evening I walk on Nose Hill with friends. I complain about how steep it is, until I get into the walk, the fresh air and the "scene". Last night was no exception. We were treated to a new sight, a tree top pair of prickly porcupines. It was really interesting and I have to do some research now. They were what looks like in the process of killing the tree, munch munch munch. Growing up on the prairies instilled a dislike for these tree killers...

As usual the knitting never stops. This is the fourth Sixty Bushels shawl I've knit to date. I call it Fruit Salad and am trying a longer more narrow shape on this one. The pattern will be ready to release in about a week, keep watching, there will be a coupon code for a free download. Three of the testers have finished and the other four are getting close to being finished as well. So far they are reporting it is an easy knit.
