Weekend recluse

I didn't leave the house this weekend except for my walk and a quick trip to Trader Joe's. Just me and the cat. It was nice. And I thought I might be getting a cold but that seems to have been averted with a lot of naps and not doing much.

I did finish a couple of socks. Obviously not a pair but their mates are started.

And I made this hat. On Friday A Stitch in Time held its annual Knit Out to benefit a local cancer treatment center. We had about twelve or fifteen knitters drop in to work on hats and scarves. I made this one for a redhead or someone who wants to find out how they'd look as a redhead.

I pretty much stayed away from the computer this weekend. I have a few emails and comments that I need to respond to. I'll see about doing that tonight.

Sounds like a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

Love the socks, red head cap and ASIT's Knit Out idea. I'm envious of your quiet weekend. Mine was me, 12 seven year old brownies and a couple of Moms at a camping overnight. Oy!

Hi Larry,

Got your comment on my blog. :) I am new at this and don't know how to email you, or if I can. Anyway I will endeavour to come by the shop when you are working. I have a new pattern to start once I finish with the stupid ChicKami so I need some yarn. It will be nice to meet another knitter in person. I don't know any!

Oh Larry - every time I see something you make I gasp! Love lovelove those socks. Love the colors. Love the textured rib.

I love the socks, nice pattern and colors. It is time you bought yourself a new knitting bag, and that cat is definately spoilt. I am sure when you get a new bag Patrick will want that one instead.
