Come Blog Along Pattern 02 Post 03
Knitting on the Road: Canada • Canal du Midi • Conwy • Dalarna • Denmark • Friday Harbor • Hiiumaa • Huron Mountain • New England • The Road to Oslo • Santa Fe • Spey Valley • Christmas in Tallinn • Traveler's Stockings • Uinta Cabin • Unst • Whitby
Today it seems that my year of projects update is more of a lack-of-progress report than otherwise. This first Canal du Midi sock is a couple inches further along - not much to show.
I've got lots of excuses if you want to hear them: playing with silk mawatas on Tuesday, knitting Christmas bags obsessively on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, starting a CeCe cardigan ... pretty much doing everything but knit these socks.
The knitting outlook for today doesn't look any more promising. With the house all to myself, I'm going to spend the day quilting. Now that's something I haven't done for a while. I've gathered up all my batik fabric scraps and cut them down to uniform strips with the idea of making a braid quilt. Can't wait to get started!
