i hope to stay put at least until friday(might head out to Ottawa for ski race) the past 2 weeks have been rather eventful in travel and knitting! its amazing how fast one can whip up a hat, cowl and wristlets while waiting in a airpirt. who ever knew getting in and out of Aspen could be so difficult!
made it home from Aspen and then on to Lake Placid for the famous "Loppet" A gruling 25k -50k nordic ski race. this time i opted for the 25k, not much training in Aspen and a little to much wine ;) poor luke had no clothes due to hubby and i forgetting his pack! my patagonia worked just fine in a pinch. great snow coverage on the olympic course, mt Vanhoovenburg. i managed to pull a second place win!during my rest period on sunday,i decided to work with my new Blu Sky Suri Merino in "Dusk". adding the Blu Sky cotton in "Pickle" for a few stripes! the finished product fits beautifly! wider ribbing makes for a snug fit.
