The rain, the rain! It didn't seem to want to stop. Yesterday morning started with freezing rain then quickly changed to regular rain. I drove my daughter to work for 8 am and it was doing nothing. By the time I got home at about 8:10 it had started to freezing rain. By 11am I watched my son walk/skate down the street to the bus on his way to work. After that it just seemed to rain heavily. There was a pond in our street. We went to DS's hockey game last night at 9pm and the arena parking lot had a 25 foot pond at the entrance.
I finished the Fluted Banister Socks yesterday morning. They are for DD but I got to wear the first! The yarn is very soft. I would DEFINATELY use it again. It was KnitPicks Essential yarn in the Peacock colourway. The colour pooling is really neat and DD loves it!
I cast on another pair of socks yesterday too. I am knitting the RPM socks in Colinette's Jitterbug yarn. It's the yarn that I received from Mairin in the World Yarn Swap. I LOVE the colourway, it is Kingfisher. The pattern is pretty easy and is good for watching TV.
Today is the very first FAMILY DAY holiday in Ontario, and I have closed my store for it! I am going to spend time with my family today. My kids are going to visit a few friends for an hour or 2 while I get caught up on some work, then we will all go and visit Della and her DD and their many dogs. Tiger is looking forward to his run/visit with his girlfriends, Hasia and Betty!
To everyone in Ontario, Happy Family Day! and to everyone in the US, Happy President's Day!
I hope you get to knit on this great day off. I know I will be!
