Year of Projects - Whitby 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

I'm a day late on my Year of Projects update (sorry). After sleeping in yesterday there was just no time to organize a blog post before meeting up with a friend in Oakville. All of which has me wishing that there was more to report than this small amount of progress on my Whitby socks: the first sock is done and the toe of the second sock is knit. Blame the blanket I've been working on - I can't seem to focus on anything else!

This morning's winter sky is a beauty with low dark clouds streaked with red. But what is it they say?
Red sky at night, sailor's delight.
Red sky in morning, sailor's warning.
Seems like the sky colour may be a valid prediction. The weather forecast calls for mixed precipitation and freezing rain at today's evening rush hour. And that makes it a perfect day to take the train back and forth to work. Sounds like the forecast also calls for some knitting time too!

Sounds like a knitting day for sure! I know the rhyme with shepherd instead of sailor :)

The sky photo is awesome, though I hope you don't equally nasty weather as a result. We often refer to that quote too.

Love the sock color. Sounds like you had a nice visit with your friend.

That sky is beautiful - but makes me glad I'm working from home today. It's nice and sunny here at the moment.

I so love the color of your socks. The pattern is delightful too. You do wonderful work.

That photo is amazing!

We're having a similar day here, but my options for getting to work are driving or biking. Guess I'll go by car!

Lovely socks as usual--and I hope your weather improves soon. We are bracing for the worst snow storm in decades here in Seattle--it always such a mess in this very hilly city I live in when snow and ice arrive--
but it is perfect to be able to have a snow day home from work and cozy up to knit!

That teal is so awesome.
What a beautiful pic of the red sky. Mother Nature just blows me away sometimes.
