I can not remember when I have been so relaxed! There are many things that I don't like about the camper (extra work, little gets done around the house by DH) - but it does have its upside. We spent the last 24 hrs out there and the wonders that it does for my 'tude.

Sat after sleeping in, having lunch with DD, I headed to the new local knit shop. Was a delicious time. Met someone new and we sat and knitted for about 3-4 hours. Just putzed on different projects that are continuing along.

Sun afternoon we headed to the camper. I had decided that I was going to start working on the vintage socks (where I had first seen them at Yarn Harlot). After looking at the pattern I was very worried that this was way beyond my ability. Biting off more than I can chew ---- yes I frequently am guilty. So I thought, maybe when your actually doing the knitting it means more than just reading it. So onward I charged.

I now have 5 little leaves done. They are very cool. Take about 45 min per leaf X 18 leaves. I am trying to work this project out WAY before Christmas. So far, so good.

So for the last 48 hours I have done very little except amuse myself with knitting. No wonder I'm relaxed. Maybe I should try this more often :)

Later Gaters

Sounds pleasant indeed :) Those socks look fun and interesting to make. Hope all goes well, happy relaxing knitting!

You are braver than I am--I ripped open my Vintage kit, took one look at that pattern *book* and stuffed it all away! I've knit sweaters with shorter instructions!!
