a little more CeCe

Thanks for all the positive thoughts and comments for Gavin; he did great! The paddlers came ashore at Ashbridge's Bay park at about 8pm - 14 hours after they started. I caught up with Gavin at the halfway point check-in and was reassured by how well he looked then. Seemed like smooth sailing to that point. His afternoon was punctuated by a couple storms and some difficult chop, but he had enough left in the tank to overcome it all and finish third (not that it was a race or anything*). Hurray Gavin!

*The first place finisher is a former olympic paddler and both guys who finished ahead of him were half his age.

As for my knitting progress, that was punctuated by pounding head tiredness, inattention and stupidity. I worked for a couple of hours on my Canal du Midi sock but it was just too complicated for my tired head - I ended up tinking back almost as much as I knit forward. Never mind. I put the sock aside and knit almost three repeats of CeCe. Not a huge amount but at least it's forward progress. And it's enough to convince me that this yarn will be fine, which is also progress of a sort.

CeCe looks wonderful. I love that color red.

Hope you can get back into "sock mode". I hate when frogging back takes out more stitches than went in. :-( It happens around here more than I'd like to admit.
