What the heck was I thinking? Great idea, so much fun at the time, felt hung over the entire next day. I think I’m getting to old . . .
I arrived just after 6pm, found a corner, cast on for my third Steppe Sweater (pdf) and got down to the business of knitting. There were 20+ knitters, coffee, tea, and lots of food. What a great combination!
While we knitted TMK blogged, so you can see the details here. (Did you know TMK is thinking of getting chickens? Isn’t that great! I almost had her convinced getting a duck to eat the slugs would be a great idea, but I think Ryan nixed that idea. BTW, ducks lay eggs too, and they’re great for baking.)
The later (or earlier) it got them fewer of us there were. I finally gave up at 4:30am, Jessica and I walked out at the same time. When you have to think about how to do garter stitch you know it’s time to throw in the towel. This is as far I made it on the Steppe Sweater . . .
. . . the body up to the armholes, one side of the front, and 1/2 of the other side of the front. For a size 10-13yrs, I figure that’s not to shabby for one night’s knitting.
I slept until about 11, but, as I mentioned before, felt hung over for the rest of the day. Ugh! Never again. Well, maybe never.
