Fil and sil are visiting from cold country.   Finding fun things to do with fil can be a challenge.   Sunday was sunny so for something completely different we went to watch a polo match.
Between trips to the airport and a rainy day I finished another pair of socks for the middle school kids.

Gambling knits

My fil and a sil are visiting this week.   Fil likes to gamble so we had a field trip to a Hard Rock Casino.  I lost my $25 dollars in about 10 minutes.  So I found a couch and a cup of coffee and got out my sock knitting.

Self discovery

I started this pair of socks three times.  Twice with cables and purling and once with a modification of Tincan knits rye.  My self dicovery is that I,really prefer letting th yarn do the work raHter then forcing it into patterns.   So Rye it is. Simple pattern fun yarn a winning combo.

Happy St. Patricks Day

We went to the square for music and frivolity and an early St. Pats party.   
   Which proved to be a really good idea.  Today, the actual St.Pats celebration is postponed due to rain.    We will be celebrating with a movie.  Dd2 returns home to the snow tomorrow.

My mistake

I been knitting the Mistaken Shawl by Dollybird Workshop. Out of some Noro that was given to me.   It is a nice pattern, but as I near the end I am convinced it is not the best use of the yarn.   
 So I am going to frog it and start over.    I fear if I finish it will just sit on the shelf. The yarn is to nice for it to languish unloved.
