It’s been several weeks since I put fingers to keyboard to update this blog! I have no excuses other than traveling, family fun, knitting a lot, a “girl-friend retreat,” and life in general.
The last week of August we drove to Fort Macleod, Alberta, to visit friends and had a wonderful time. A movie was being filmed there – “Interstellar” starring Matthew McConaughey. The downtown area was covered with sand and giant fans to create a dust storm!
The socks are now about 1.5 done and designated for my sister, Barbara; but the shawl has been totally frogged about 11 rows from the end!! I screwed up the lace edge and just couldn’t live with the multiple errors in the stripes! Then before I went on the “girl-friend retreat” I made a black scarf / shawlette that I love! By the way, that retreat was a blast!! Spent two days in Victoria with my sister, Barb, her best friend, Lynn, and my best friend, Pat. We stayed at The Empress Hotel, had High Tea at the hotel, walked Butchart Gardens for a day, and shopped — all the while laughing a lot! But of course, “what happened on Vancouver Island, stays on the Island!! LOL
