What. A. Month. We’re nine days into November, and it is shaping up to be a whirlwind for the remainder. I won’t be posting next week as I’ll be on a long awaited vacation (YAY), and this week is a quick post to explain where I’ve been, where I’m going, and my WIPs.
Last week, I was able to attend a conference in Windsor, a fantastic opportunity with highly inspirational sessions, but my weekend was essentially spent not only recovering from three busy days, but also spend preparing for the vacation next week. Starting with a concert on Friday, the BFF and I fly on the Saturday and will spend a week in the heat and sunshine. And yes, I’ve already planned which LYS’s I’ll be visiting! You know, the important tourist destinations. I’ll share my experiences and purchases once I return!
As for WIPs, still heavily involved with holiday knitting, but I was able to cast on a new pair of socks at the conference. Earlier this year, I made a pair of Hermione’s Everyday Socks, which is a super popular pattern on Ravelry. But did you know that designer Erica Lueder has other fabulous patterns named in honour of and inspired by Harry Potter? I started a pair of Weasley Rib Socks and am so far rather happy. Socks, as they always do, make for a great, transportable project, which is why I started them at the conference, but now that I’m home holiday knitting once again takes precedence.
See you in a few weeks!
