|this was taken at around 10pm!!|
though i had work knitting that needed my attention, i had a hard time putting these socks down! i just wanted to see one more stripe! i am just about finished the first sock now... the heel had to be redone a few times... as i had to change some numbers in the pattern... (i promise to give a full review and post once the socks are completed and we have some fun photos to boot) .... but i'm really pleased with my progress, considering i did in fact work on my other knitting that needed to be done.
and with temperatures sitting at around 34 degrees i'm amazed i was still knitting (well no... not really, we all know i would probably knit in any circumstance. any weather, any situation.... i actually feel a sense of anxiety if i don't have some knitting with me now... totally normal behavior though, for a hard core knitter... no?)
as for the running? sadly, i didn't get any runs in. but come this weekend, that will change. i've had to take a few days to recoup... and get this house in order... you know how it is.
we had a lovely canada day celebration while we were out camping with my husband's family, it was nice to sit by the fire, knitting in hand... the only thing i could do without was the bugs... all of the rain alberta has been getting has made those mosquitoes and horseflies vicious. but i'm quick like a ninja... most of the time... unfortunately my little man had many itchy bites... we are sure happy to be back on the island where we don't have to worry about that now :) and have some milder temperatures too...
it's always nice to go away, but it's so nice to come home again, isn't it?
tell me, what are your plans this weekend? i'd love to hear from you! what are you working on? any f.o's to share? anything new on your needles, and hooks? i'm itching to start another shawl i think! come chat... i've missed you so!!! xoxoxo
