Big Weekend

It was my chance to do whatever I wanted without having to be anywhere at any time. My husband was away at a songwriters weekend and I had the house to myself. With the snow finally melting (sending those warm spring thoughts must have worked, thanks) it was the time to go to the new knitting stores which opened over the winter which I was not able to get to until now.

I went to Unwind ( in Newmarker, ON. Lovely store with lots of drop-in knitting going on which is wonderful. This is hand-dyed sock wool by a local dyer from Bradford, On, my new destination.

DK weight wool from Indigo Moon, BC ( I'm going to make some house socks to wear in the mornings and evenings. Mmm, comfy. I love the spring green colourway.

Some nice dark sock wool from Dream in color ( A secret project for my husband. He won't even know they're for him.

Sort of a busman's holiday for me but a good time was had by all, me that is. I have a couple of sock ideas running around my head so this will get me started.

Meanwhile back at the ranch I finished a Basic Baby V cardigan in Freedom Spirit. I love the wool. It feels great when I'm knitting with it. But a little weird on the colouration when it's finished. I like it though, it's rather interesting. But I'm going to have to fix up the sleeves aren't I. Sigh. Note to self - repaint that floor soon, real soon.
