1. It was the right thing to do.
2. It's the process...there are no excuses, no WIPs. Practice what you preach, so to speak. (See #1)
3. I had a few days off. Which doesn't mean there was more time to knit, as I was doing other fun stuff,but it just felt right. (See #1 & #2)
4. Encouragement from blog friends was helpful and made it necessary not to disappoint. (See #2) Thank you, friends.
5. There was the most excellent opportunity for a photo shoot, as I had a few days off. (See #3)
6. It took constant vigilance to knit the foot and, thank goodness, the toe was short. I finished it and wove in the ends while Smith drove up the canyon. (See #3)
A weekday is the only day (which means taking a vacation day) Silver Fork can make a GF meal. Happy am I to be able to dine at one of my favorite places once again!
As usual, after our breakfast at the Fork, we took a stroll around Silver Lake. Most of the aspen leaves had fallen, but the last stand provided an excellent backdrop.
Prymania was totally fun, entertaining, a total blast to knit, and Pandora Sock (from The Woolen Rabbit, of course), made it all the better. The yarn feels so good on my feet and it will be durable. (Raveled here)
How about one more shot of Silver Lake?
The mountain snow left by the last storm has not melted away, which is surely a sign our fabulous fall will soon be over. My vacation days coincided perfectly with the last few days of sun.
