The subject line is a bit high-falutin’, really.
All I really wanted to say is that I did a bit of public knitting for the first time in a long time. I was at a Toronto legal clinic conference for a couple of days, and it was a cool bunch of people so I thought they wouldn’t be thrown off too much by the knitting.
Au contraire. In fact, I met a whole group of conference knitters (from one clinic in particular… in fact, I was asked why I didn’t work at their clinic!)
And, I made a lot of progress on my log cabin blankie project:
What I managed to do over the two days: finish the green, add the dark brown on the right side, and start the blue.
I managed also to make everyone jealous at the conference, because the meeting rooms were (very) cold but I was knitting and covering myself with a blanket while knitting. I assure you all that this wasn’t planned… but it did work out very well.
I also managed (inadvertently) to inspire some envy regarding my very cool Ecco boots (a gift from my mother, who works at Ecco Shoes in Kingston, Ontario).
I got to wear both boots at the conference today, which to be honest felt more like wearing slippers – that’s how comfortable they are:
Wish me luck with the log cabin: I’m not quite sure about the colour choices yet. I do hope that they meld a bit better. It has been suggested to me that the brown/orange combo was a tad too reminiscent of the A&W Root Beer Bear:
…which is quite funny as I can’t remember the last time I ate at A&W. To give you a tip, it was when they still had drive-in restaurants (and now I’m dating myself).
However, I’m hopeful that this blankie will still work out. And I managed a good chunk of it during this conference, for which I am grateful.
Happy Friday and a fabulous weekend to you all!
