Checks date. Ummm… I seem to be behind. But the January sock is finished! I am pleased. I did mess up the Kitchener stitch at the toe a bit, so I will have to redo it. (I am afraid a hole will develop where the goof is.) But here it is for now:
This past weekend was the annual Haliburton retreat. A bunch of us drive to Haliburton (an experience of it’s own in February) and we sit and knit and eat and drink and roll in yarn. Some people snowshoe across the lake but I had a strict no activity policy (which was thrown out the window when we had to push cars out the long, slippery, uphill driveway).
Just the same, you’d think with all the knitting done I’d have gotten further with my projects. I have about 2″ of February sock done:
And about 3″ of the Susie Hoodie completed:
But much fun was had. Yarn was acquired. Much food was consumed. And the nice thing with going with 10 other women… everyone does a bit so it seems that the food just appears and the cleaning just happens. We ended up being delayed (due to being stuck at the bottom of a long slippery uphill driveway), and so we all cleaned the place in 5 minutes. 11 women * 5 is almost an hours work. Magic.
