The Summer Olympics are on T.V., and the events are happening fast and furious. The Olympics make for great knitting. This year I am attempting to clean up some WIP’s in the form of socks – I really need some socks! About three pairs of my socks have developed holes in the last year. It has been a couple of years since I finished a pair for myself.
I am also working on a sample for the class next week and the pattern to accompany it! This may jeopardize my socks, but not doing it may jeopardize the class – besides beading is a lot more fun.
The project is a Bead Knit – beads knit into each stitch to make a picture or pattern – Bracelet or Choker. I am working with Handmaiden Lace Silk and size 8/0 beads. This will be a wide bracelet.
Today we are heading to Victoria to see “Mama Mia” this evening. The tickets were a Christmas Present to ourselves.
There will be family visits at lunch and again at dinner and shopping in between – my teas have not been replenished in months! I need some Library Tea! It will be a very busy couple of days. Sophie is going to a Kennel for today and tomorrow. This will be first for her. I am told that she will be fine.
I hope that you have a busy couple of days, knitting, watching the Olympics and enjoying your summer.
