Pictures later

I’ve finished the front, and am more than half done the back. But it’s grey and dark here (finally, the promised thunderstorms! After more than a week of oppressive heat and humidity, a bit of a break!) so I’ll try to get a picture tomorrow.

For the record, I don’t know on whose authority Saturday was “International Knit in Public Day”, (seen on a couple of blogs, but I don’t remember where) but I did indeed KIP. I sat with Mark and my dad and watched/listened to some wonderful blues bands (notably Georgette Fry) down in the Distillery District, and knit away on my languishing green sock. So I did my bit!

My parents were visiting this weekend — at least, my mother was down for the League of Canadian Poets Annual General Meeting, and my dad came down to hang out. We all went out to dinner on Friday with my supervisor — it was great to have them all finally meet. All in all, it was a lovely weekend, and very nice to see my parents, as always.

But now I’ve got to get back into the knitting! We’ve been eating outside now that it’s so hot, and I don’t really get much knitting done when we aren’t sitting around watching tv. I must find a way to work the knitting into an outdoor lifestyle…

Sounds like a nice place to knit in public. I’ve gotta find some bands to go listen to and take my husband, he so misses that.
