Friday "Flock" - Ambergate
It's time for the Friday "Flock" update!
Sorry about missing last Friday - but I was at The Needle Emporium Knit Camp up in Muskoka - the weather was great...until Sunday when it turned quite chilly....and that got me thinking about Mittens! I sure wish I had taken some with me when I was having that early Sunday morning walk before breakfast and the classes started!
This edition features lots of great mittens that you might be interested in for yourself, or even for Christmas gifts!
Another way to keep the chill off is to wear something over your neck and shoulders!
Ambergate, this week's Flock cover design, is a stunning cable wrap, and is the Row@n member’s monthly exclusive free pattern for September. Designed by Marie Wallin and using the beautiful yarn Cocoon (merino wool and kid mohair) this wrap features an exquisite cable stitch pattern and cribbed detail edging. You can find it here.

On a personal note..... I have been neglecting my blog this summer mainly due to the illness and death of a dear friend, neighbour and knit buddy. It's so true "You never know what you've got 'til it's gone." Make sure you cherish all of your friendships - I can attest that the ones that can push your buttons the easiest in life are the ones you are going to miss the most in death.
When you choose your friends, don't be short-changed by choosing personality over character.
Although things will never be the same, it is time to focus and get back to my routine. There is so much to catch up on!
