I'm going on holidays on Saturday! And, when I go on holidays with Leon I like to knit for Leon. So, for the last couple of weeks I've been knitting small projects, so that I can be finished up before we go. The mitts didn't take me quite as long as I expected, so on Monday I cast on a pair of socks, for the sneaker liner project.
Today I went to Wangaratta for work, which involved 6 hours in a car for an hour and a half of meetings.I hadn't intended to go to the mill shop, but when the guy who was driving me said he was just going to talk to someone and he'd only be ten minutes, I grabbed the opportunity to run up the road. I was pretty rushed so I didn't get a chance to look at everything, but in the three minutes I actually had in the shop I bought a kilogram of Rowan Denim,
and some awesome self stripping sock yarn in navy, grey and black. All of Leon's favourite colours in one yarn!
And then I hopped in the car for the three hour drive home, which was a great chance to finish the second sock.
