It was a legit windy day and perfect for a sweater like My Lopi when this was taken. I love my My Lopi sweater. The design by @sweaterfreakknits is gorgeous (fyi, the pattern was released yesterday, if you want one for yourself!). . My first foray into lopapeysa (Icelandic yoked wool sweaters) has been one that might be the start of a new addiction. Addictions can be good, right? Especially ones that expand my hand-knit sweater collection? . . . #knitting #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #knitwear #sweaterfreakknits #mylopi #lopapeysa #icelandicwool #icelandicknitting #sweaterweather #sweateraddiction #lettlopi #lopi #lopapeysaaddict #wool #knitherapy #continentalknitting #chiaogoo #interchangeables

This Big Nomad, Little Nomad toque (pattern by @mamasteddybear) for the little guy is working up really nicely! Tried customizing the design for him -- I think I like how it turned out.

Exploring the great outdoors is a lot of fun with this little guy. Things thought to be mundane and just an every day part of nature are seen in a whole new light through the lens of a three year old. . . . #nature #exploringnature #familytime #family #familyhike #hikingtrails #sundayhike #fall #winter #ontario #thelittleguy

Some more homemade falafels on the docket! The great part is you can make a large batch ahead of time, shape them, and then freeze the little pucks for later! . . . #chickpeas #falafel #food #foodprep #foodphotography #fromscratch #vegetarian #vegan #fresh #fiber #delicious #omnomnom

Cast on another Big Nomad, Little Nomad toque by @mamasteddybear. Love this design for my kids. This one is for the little guy who, after he saw L wearing hers, asked “When shall I get one? In blue?”. I laughed and then ordered a skein of @berrocoyarn Vintage DK (great inexpensive wool blend, btw, for items like these) in Blue Moon (it has subtle red tinting throughout — it’s really nice). . . . #berroco #yarn #vintagedk ##knitting #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #knittoque #knitwear #knitherapy #continentalknitting #chiaogoo #interchangeables #bignomadlittlenomadhat #provisionalcaston #germanshortrows #gsr

First morning steep ☕. We all need a good chai in our lives. Perfect for looking out the window while watching the snow drift down ❄️. . . . #rooibos #chai #cinnamon #davidstea #tea #hottea #steep #loosetea #steeping #warming #caffeinefree #goodmorning #watchingthesnowfall

#tbt to another batch of mead, this time an amazing blackcurrant mead with blackcurrants and honey from my parents' farm. My dad keeps bees so we are incredibly fortunate to have a pretty endless supply of honey. I wanted a drier wine than the batches we previously made so I made sure to really monitor specific gravity with the appropriate amount of honey. We used Lalvin K1-V1116 and some nutrients and let it go for 2 months. Ended up with an alcohol percentage of 18.5% and a fantastically dry red wine. We'll have to try and replicate this one again soon. . . . #tbt #mead #honeywine #wine #drywine #vikingdrink #alcohol #blackcurrant #honey #rawhoney #bees #yeast #lalvink1v1116 #homemade #homebrew #brewing #fermentation #diy

Love this shawl by @aliciaplums. It's big enough to wrap around my shoulders and works so well as a scarf. I love when there's excess material to loop around comfortably. And of course, wool and leather are my absolute favourite materials to mix and wear. . . . #campsideshawl #aliciaplummer #knitting #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #knitwear #knitherapy #berroco #ultraalpacalight #alpaca #wool #continentalknitting #chiaogoo #interchangeables #leather #fallfashion

Just finished blocking this gorgeous oversized Campside shawl by @aliciaplums. Knitted projects are definitely improved by blocking -- the differences can be night and day. It can take a little extra time but, wow, it is well worth the wait! . . . #campsideshawl #aliciaplummer #knitting #blocking #waiting #patience #knitdesign #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #knitwear #knitherapy #berroco #ultraalpacalight #alpaca #wool #continentalknitting #chiaogoo #interchangeables

Waiting for my tea to steep this morning. Definitely needing a hot mug to help start this chilly fall day. ☕ . . . #rooibos #mintchocolate #davidstea #tea #hottea #steep #loosetea #steeping #warming #caffeinefree #photography #lifestylephotography

She loves the outdoors. I'm pretty sure if she could just roam around outside amongst the trees all day long, she would. . . . #finleythepoodle #adventuredog #poodlesofinstagram #standardpoodle #spoo #photography #naturephotography #lifestylephotography

Sunday Walk, Part 2. I jokingly said to my husband that he should start a blog (he wouldn't) about his father and son adventures because he already has a professional photographer on permanent retainer capturing those moments 🤣😊. . . . #photography #lifestylephotography #familyhike #familytime #family #sundaywalk #sundayfunday #canon5dmarkii #50mm12 #fatherandson

I love our Sunday walks. It's really nice to be able to get out, rain (or snow) or shine, and be surrounded by nature. . . . #familytime #family #familyhike #hikingtrails #sundayhike #fall #ontario #fatherandson
