We had never been to the island, but it was time. Our friends Reg and Jan had recently moved to just outside of St. John's and were once again going to put us up. (We had been to their ranch in Saskatchewan a time or two when they lived out west.)
The one thing I wanted as a souvenir was a fisherman knit sweater. I knew the women of the island knitted them and they were sold in the stores. We walked up one side of Water Street and down the other.
I told Karl that I needed something to do in the truck while we drove down to PEI. I thought I might make some socks but then counted how many pairs I have and decided I really don't need anymore of those for awhile.
I gave it another 5 second think and decided to knit a baby sweater...............this one............
Needles, more than one pair, cable hooks, yarn, pins, you name it, its in the bag.
I also went downstairs and found a peanut butter jar. I had Karl drill a hole in the lid
and I can work away with the yarn nice and tidy inside and no fear of it getting dirty. I should have most of the back done after two days of travel. We are up early and our first night's destination is Levi, Quebec. Day two is where we are staying, somewhere on the island. I'm not going to tell you where, because its a beautiful spot and I want it available for me -- greedy sod that I am.
