Yopping Update - September 11
I flew in from London Sunday (and boy are my arms tired ;) ), and I did this on the flight. One sock - 8 1/2 hours while watching three in-flight movies (and eating the occasional snack).
So that was the extent of my knitting while I travelled from New York to Croatia to London and then home. Two pairs of socks from my to do list! Here is the 2nd completed pair.
I also visted LOOP knitting shop in Islington while in London and bought two skeins of yarn and a book of twelve patterns - 10 to celebrate 10th anniversary of Loop. This means I have technically failed at cold sheeping for the year, but hey, it was totally worth it! I plan to make a shawl out of these lovely BFL (Bluefaced Leichester) singles, by The Uncommon Thread yarn company, using one of the patterns in the book - either WREATH or AUTUMN LEAF. This yarn was from English sheep, spun and dyed in England. Perfect souvenir from my trip to London, no?
So that's it for me - once this jetlag is done (crappy headache for two days) I will be back to knitting.
I will also spend the week catching up on all the other yoppers. I have a lot of catching up to do!
