Proof that I’m still working on the log cabin:
Please excuse the ultra-yellowness of the photo. Now that it is August, I’m getting terribly sentimental about everything, since we leave this lovely town in 28 days. For example, last night at stitch & bitch, where the above photo was taken, I kept thinking, “I’m going to miss this so much. This is my fourth last stitch & bitch.” However, I am looking forward to checking out some knitting groups in Victoria and meeting new people who
are crazy like me knit.
When I’m not slogging along, I can be found looking and obsessively clicking this:
Oh Ravelry. I’m trying to keep my queue of projects reasonable and I have realized that my humble stash is nothing compared to some of you out there. I also destashed about 10 skeins last night to my lovely knitting companions. This is bad news because it gives me reason to splurge a little once we make the move. Did I mention I’ll be living within very close proximity to Beehive?
Most of my worldly possessions are in Victoria, BC now, including my stash and needles. I obviously didn’t finish the log cabin by July 29, as Silas left for Victoria on Monday, and it is pictured in my possession in a photo from Tuesday. Oh well, now I’ll get to deliver it in person. I just cast on that purple thing in the round, borrowing some needles from Kirsti. It’s just a quick distraction from the blanket for a friend’s birthday.
In other non-stitchy news, the weather has finally given us a break after two weeks of hot, unbearable humidity and 30ºC or higher temps. Yesterday it rained and today is a lovely breezy 23ºC which makes me much more pleasant to be around. I was able to turn on the stove without sweat instantly forming in my pores.
