the dog ate my knitting ...


or ...
... My baby brother threw up on my knitting.
... I got mugged and the bag with my knitting was stolen.
... I knit my second sock but the aliens who abducted me kept it.
... I was so busy yesterday that I forgot to knit.

None of these excuses is true although the last one isn't far off. We were busy yesterday and as a result the second sock of the last pair for the Warm Hands Network isn't finished.

The wind was right and the waves were breaking, so the call went out - Surf's Up! After Gavin was suited up and in the water, I made my way down to the shore to snap a few pics. Good thing he's wearing a cold water wetsuit as well as boots, mitts and a hood - he'd be frozen otherwise. When I got home there was another 10 cm of snow to shovel from the sidewalk and driveway. At least Mother Nature is sending snow on weekends when I don't have to drive anywhere!

A little bit of knitting did get done through the Leafs game last night. And surprise, surprise ... they almost didn't lose!

OMG surfing in this?! Wow. Don't you love when it snows only on the weekends.

Oh my gosh! Way too bone-chilling for me to even consider!

I have NEVER thrown up on your knitting. And, if I did, sorry...
