Home Away From Home

 Daughter and her hockey playing hubby are off to a tournament this weekend in Lake Placid, the lucky ducks. I'm at her house kitty sitting and commuting back and forth to the outdoor rinks to teach my LTS classes.

 I've packed some of my mindless projects to keep me busy in the down times. All the new sock projects are proceeding nicely.

My Very Warm Hat is almost ready for the big adventure of picking up and knitting that second hat onto the first for the lining. I'm not going to mirror the colorwork as so many do because that would make it too thick and that would be too warm for these parts. We can't get a good blizzard going around here even when it's aimed right at us. Juno, I'm talking to you.


  1. Ahhh, nothing like a sock or two on the needles to calm the spirit. Unless it's a hat-that's pretty cool, too. Are you really sorry you missed the blizzard!?

    1. I would have liked our predicted 3-5 inches. I need at least one sled ride down the driveway and I'm way overdue!

  2. Very pretty projects. I love the colors of your socks. The hat looks lovely.

  3. So nice of you to kitty sit! Love your projects, the first socks especially. Be careful what you wish's a long time till spring. LOL
