A Productive Weekend

A weekend away at a cottage produced a couple of things. I finished the scarf that I half heartedly started last week... I find the yarn a bit rough and hope it will soften when I wash it.

And a pair of socks for Elliotte from leftover yarn. I have so much pretty yarn left I suspect there will be a couple of more pairs before Christmas.

I have to take a break from knitting and do a little housekeeping before things go to hell in a handbasket here. Unpacking the rest of the suitcases from our trip to Greece would be a good start it guess. Oh well, there's always tomorrow...

It's About Time

I've been back in Canada for a week now but getting over jet lag has been harder than in previous years. I think the older you get the harder it is.

Anyway, I do have some stuff to post. I did a lot of knitting in Greece since a; my husband was otherwise occupied and b; the weather wasn't the greatest. I knit five pairs of socks. I only have photos of four since one pair I gave away to our wonderful neighbour Sophia (see my post on my other blog) before I got a chance to photograph them. They were nice though and I'm certain they were appreciated.

I've started another pair of socks since returning home but his pair will not show up here until they are finished. They will be very colorful since I've decided to stripe them using every leftover sock yarn I have. I hate waste...

I've also started the Noro Scarf. I'm late to this project since just about everyone in Ravelry has done this one. Better late than never I figure and it is going to be nice. I will gift this to someone special since it's pretty pricey. The yarn alone was over forty bucks.
