Makes a happy mommy!
That retreat last weekend was just what I needed! I didn't get as much done as I hoped to but it was so relaxing! It is so awesome getting to know people on a deeper level. Out at LLBC you actually have time to really talk, I LOVE it! We all decided that we need to figure out how to get out there every other month.... We'll see how that goes!
I worked a bit on my pomatomus socks... then when I got home realized that I didn't transfer 3sts and had to rip out part of some decreased on the gusset the heel turn and the heel flap...
But I was able to work on them while two friends and I were out on the paddle boats, they paddled and I got to just sit there and knit :O) I swear I didn't plan it like that!
So here are some pics of the scenery out on the lake, so pretty. If you can remember the pictures I took and posted about in September... same place just different colors.
Did I say I love it out there yet?!
But then again who wouldn't?
I also spun all the fiber I brought out there! and then remembered that I needed to wash and set it before I could knit with it... But at least its all spun up! And I did knit all the the yarn I had spun previously... I'm hoping that I'll have enough yarn to make this cardigan/shrug to my liking. Oh and just in case, I Navajo plyed it, I really like the way it turned out, I can't wait to wear my first handspun hand knit garment!
Here is a little preview.
And here is how far I've gotten on the pomatomus sock. I'm hoping to finish this one and knit the next one by the end of October... HA, I know, funny. But I'm going to try! For the SAM4 kal... I've got six days, I better get of this computer and go knit, I mean make lunch for the kids, then knit ;O) Wish me luck, or am I just crazy?!
