I finished the mittens on Sunday. I imagine these will be sturdy and strong. I don't find them scratchy or harsh, but they certainly don't feel soft or delicate. The Clun Forest is a down breed, known for it's strong, springy fibre. I'm pretty sure these mitts would be able to take some machine washing without felting. They're that sturdy.

The sun over the lake was gorgeous though. Actually the city of Kingston is particularly beautiful, with old stone houses everywhere, a restored Fort Henry, Fort Fredrick and Murney Martello Tower. Unfortunately, it was the off season and they were all closed or we may have lingered on Sunday. I was promised however, a trip to the area again in the spring or summer, in order to indulge in historical sight seeing!
I did manage to play around with a few different settings to try to capture the sunset. There have been few enough sunsets at home of late. The heavy, dark grey skies, just haven't been photo worthy back home. These two were my favourites.
