Sweet Beautiful Time Off!!
|As of about 20 minutes ago, I am off for 3 weeks (well, I'm on call for overnight admissions Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday of this week, but at least I have the days free.)|
I'll be heading back to BC on Sunday, so this gives me a chance to check out the places near the rental, and I'll also be heading into Toronto on Friday and Saturday.
Batty left a comment that I need 2 stashes. I'm happy to report that my Ontario stash has been in existence for several weeks now:
Here's the latest addition:
I picked up the Silky Tweed from Martina at Kniterary. It's destined to become a Firefly Sweater a la Definitely Maybe Knits
And here's some yarn that I started knitting up as a shawl for the Sea socks Cruise:
I was doing a simple YO/K2tog alernating with garter stitch pattern, but I saw this pattern when we were shopping in Victoria, and decided that I would frog it and restart at some point in time:
My goal is to have it done for next year's Sea Socks Cruise.
On an unrelated topic - I suggest that any GTA readers check out the Driftwood Theatre production of Much Ado About Nothing. I saw them perform The Complete Works of William Shakespear (Abridged), and it was a blast - they are hilarious!
