No snappy blog post title today, sorry.
This weekend, Rudy and Leslie came to visit us from Duluth, to participate in Brian and Ben's Dirtbag Ride. Rudy and Brian had surprisingly dressed in a similar style:
On Saturday, I got to go to some skiing thing in Mora. I'm not really into skiing, I was there just to hang out with the coolest baby boy I know, Aunders. He was decked out in a super-fly jersey to match his momma - what a pair!
So anyway, I hung out with Aunders and his momma Kyia for a couple of hours while she did her thing at the ski coaches' event. We had a great time! He is such a mellow, happy baby.
I also finished a pair of socks for my stepdad for Christmas last night. These are true proof that I am not a detail oriented knitter:
One sock is .5" longer than the other (thanks, handspun), and one sock has 1x1 rib at the cuff while the other has 2x2 rib. Classy. The yarn is Cloudlover SW Merino handspun in 2ply, in the color Morel. They turned out soft and beautiful despite some "design features!"
Now I'm working on my Christmas knitting list. With less than 2 months until the big gift day, I'm knitting furiously but may not be able to post many pictures of my progress. I'm also swatching for the Greenfield Cardigan from New England Knits for NaKniSweMo. So much to knit, so little time!
