Ordinary weekend

Sometime it’s good to try new things. So in an attend to be more culturally integrated into the Florida scene, we went to a hockey game on Saturday.  What?  Hockey game in Florida?  Yep, Orlando has its own hockey team, the Solar Bears.  They were playing against the Sting Rays from South Carolina, another States well known for its hockey legacy Winking smile.

It was fun, fast and quite rough.  The Solar Bears got a few penalties for starting fights, but in the end they won and all was well!

80s revival – the legwarmers

In all honesty, this project does not deserve a post, but Juliette’s legs are pretty and strong, and when she asks me to make something for her, I am happy to oblige.

So here are the legwarmers, all the way back from the 80s: 48 stitches knitted in 2x2 ribbing for a very, very long time.  This project deserves the Oscar of the most boring project I have ever knitted.  The good thing is that it was so eventless that I knitted on the road, at the movie, in the dark…

The yarn is Wool of the Andes from Knit Pick – 100% Peruvian Highland Wool, at $1.99 for a 110-yarn ball, it’s a bargain. The colour is Blossom Heather.  I’ve used only 2 and a half balls, I could probably use the rest to extend the Vivid blanket.
