I only took yarn and instructions for the Lindsay sock on vacation this last week. We had family with us so I didn’t think there would be much time for knitting. The airplane trips to and from Mexico provided lots of focused time. While we were in Mexico I became quite fond of the Quiver I bought at the Aurora Fiber Festival the weekend before we left. I could easily knit and watch grandson, Fritz, crawl around.
During the flight from San Diego to Portland I began the garter stitch short row heel. I love the stitch design so much that I decided to make the socks knee high. That means a bit more knitting but it is worth it. It took just a few rounds for me to memorize the lace pattern and feel comfortable toting the sock around with me. As usual, it came along when we went out to dinner!
Wet weather is predicted for this weekend so I am looking forward to some knitting time on my Classic Lines Cardigan.
Here is my plan for the weekend.
Saturday – Fabric store hopping with Vicki Bellino who came to surprise Teri for her baby shower. I want to add to my Feedsack fabric collection for my “second” English Paper Piecing quilt.
Sunday – Write next week’s podcast. I am so excited about the topic. Rainy weather will be perfect! Lots of Mexican hot chocolate and writing. Hopefully, I will have the late afternoon and evening to work on my Classic Lines Cardigan. <
