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!

More free advertising: Check out www.kateknits.com for some totally cool sock patterns that are designed to use up bits of sock yarn! The beaded socks that I am knitting are from her Legs for Easy Toe Up Socks pamphlet.

The stash looks like it's growing quite nicely. I love the shawl pattern, and thanks for the link to the sock patterns.

3 weeks off - that is awesome! I hope you get lots and lots and lots of knitting done. ;)

I'm so glad you're taking proper care of your inner knitter! : )

3 weeks off is a lot of knitting time, have fun relaxing and cranking out those socks!
The shawl is gorgeous. It looks like it'll be pretty smooth going once you get the pattern down, you'll have it done in no time.
