I had great plans for today. I was going to get up, go for a swim, go to the park and take photos of my knitting, get back home in time for a client meeting then spend all afternoon working. Unfortunately, this happened:
It's been really cold and wet all day. I'm going a bit stir crazy! Tomorrow's supposed to be sunny and for my sanity and peace of mind I hope it is.
Fortunately, knitting is not a weather-dependent hobby (or else I really would go mad). I think I've mentioned before that my dad and my sister live overseas. It's not that big a deal - it just means that Christmas presents need to be sent by the start of December. However, I spoke to Dad a few days ago and he told me he plans to come to Melbourne at the end of October. Great, because I can see him and save on postage at the same time.
Not so great because I haven't finished his or his wife's socks!
This is not a huge deal - both of the socks are more than halfway. It's easily doable.
But then my sister rang, and reminded me that she's coming in the first week of November, so her socks need to be done by then.
Again, they're 80% done, so not a big deal.
Except for this.
The needles arrived and I got gauge on the second attempt. All I want to do is start knitting my Belmont cardigan! Maybe I'll just do the cast on and then get back to the socks...
