Just back from the cabin. Guess what. I FORGOT MY KNITTING! It's a 4 hour drive, people. Imagine the progress I would have gotten with my Hogwart Socks!
But the silver lining is that I was able to stop at Sisu - the yarn store in Ely. It's teeny-tiny and they had just what I needed. A ball of sock yarn and some double pointed needles.
I took my bloggy friends' advice and I started on the Monkey socks from Knitty. WOW! It's such a great pattern. This is the perfect pattern if you can only knit basic socks!! You'll need to know yo, k tbl, ssk, k2tg . . . that's about it . . . and it's fun.
On the way back down - I FORGOT MY PURSE which held ALL MY STUFF, including MY CAMERA - so I'll borrow my mom's and show you a picture as soon as I can.
