Adventures in knitting from the eastern edge of Canada.

Oh for crying out loud!

I was so close. SO close. I need to get these socks in the mail asap for Father's Day, and I got halfway through the toe decreases before running out of yarn. Ack!

So I'm off on my bike for a stop at the LYS on the way to the office. I'll have to finish and block these tonight, and hope for good drying conditions. Wish me luck!

Do you have to mail the parcel to Nfld. Dads are very understanding and he will probably get gifts on the day and can spin the whole celebration out a bit by getting a gift a day or two later. It will be fine!
I don't think other people realize how friendly a 'biking' city Ottawa is. Our son rode his bike a lot and he lived in Glouchester (?sp) and drove to the centre of the city!
How much longer before you move? I am sure you are getting anxious. It will be so much fun - well once the boxes are unpacked and you can sit in the kitchen in your jammies and have your tea!!

I love that...'once the boxes are unpacked and sitting in the kitchen in your jammies and having your tea'....Peg sure has a way about her, one I highly appreciate!

ACK is right, but I'm with Peg, I'm sure your Dad will understand and hey, handknit socks ARE the very best and well worth any wait in my book!
Good luck!

Thanks for the encouragement! I did pick up the extra skein today, so hopefully if I send them ExpressPost, they should make it to Newfoundland by the weekend. For some reason I've never understood, my hometown has mail delivery on Saturday, which will come in very handy this time!

Peg, we are flying to St. John's on July 27th, and the movers will come sometime during the week prior. So still a little time before we start packing. Which is good, because I still have a lot of work to finish up at school! Ottawa is indeed a very bike-friendly city. I'm going to really miss that. St. John's has narrower streets and a lot more hills!

Nooooooo. Darn boys with big feet. Darn yarn.

P.S. I can definitely rec the 1930 shorts with the garter-stitch edging. I'd also even do an extra couple rows of stockinette on the bottom too, if you want more, er, coverage. ;)
