Walking… Still not knitting

There were some completely lovely comments on my last (quite whiny, really) post about wrist pain and time away from knitting – thank you lovely commenters!

I’m still on my knitting break, so I don’t have anything yarny to show you. I did go on a lovely rainy walk, though, and I thought I’d share some of the best bits.

I started out near the inner harbour, which I kind of love on gray days.

Harbour

This time of year, Victoria also has lots of cherry blossoms – super pretty!

AN ADORABLE SNAIL!!!

Snailio!

There was some fiber-ey content – I passed three or four of Victoria’s giant spindle whorl sculptures (more on them here – they’re called “Signs of Lekwungen”, and honour the Coast Salish). I love, love, love having such amazing and public connections to fiber arts in my city!

Awesome giant spindles

Spindle detail!

It’s 100% spring here, so flowers are happening!

Blurry but pretty

There’s also a series of sculptures around the harbour of hands doing a variety of things. I both love them AND think they’re super super creepy :)

Super creepy hands sculpture!

I love my city, and walking is definitely a good thing; I’m still looking forward to getting back to knitting, though!

Happy Things :)

There have been lots of happy things in the past week!

I’ve spent lots of time drinking tea…

This calls for tea.

Making (and consuming) fall-feeling desserts, like this Cardamom Gingerbread…

Tastiest!

Staying inside while perfect, gray days unroll outdoors…

Rainiest!

And hanging out with my furry, occasionally cuddly cat!

Furriest!

 

There’s a lot of knitting going on, too – but most of it is secret, for now :)
