My apologies for not sharing Knit Group stories with you today. Mind you, I was MIA last week too so this makes two weeks in a row. I sense withdrawal symptoms amongst my readers. Last week it was the weather/flu combo that kept me away. This week, my absence is for more exciting reasons. I am off to Montreal for a weekend.
Sis, I and Baby Sis are going to hop on a train and head to Montreal to visit Baby Sis's daughter, my niece. Last January, she took a job transfer to Montreal and is now a proud and happy Montrealer with a horrific accent to her French.
Month's end is Sunday. I will still be in Montreal. I know you are wondering if my goal of having Hippie Blue finished has been accomplished. Bets anyone?
The answer is almost. Although tradition has it that close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, I am happy with my progress. The trip to sleeve island was done on a speed boat this time. I knit sleeve number one on a circular needle, simply pulling out the excess cable as the sleeve narrowed. Much faster than knitting it with double points. Sleeve number one is done
