The simplest stranded knitting gives this hat a little something extra. A great project to use up some of your leftover bits of worsted yarn :)

There is a fabulous hiking trail at Fishing Point in St. Anthony. A staircase with 476 steps takes you up a nearly vertical mountainside to a beautiful 360° view. Before we hiked up the stairs, two humpback whales swam by. On the way down we saw a grey fox making her way up the stairs - she melted into the shrubbery before I could snap her picture. I found out later that Fishing Point is also called Fox Point. This is another iceberg watching spot, and there have even been sightings of polar bears.

Our Newfoundland trip inspired a collection of patterns - Northward.
