We had a great time in Park City visiting with family. We golfed, ate too much, shopped (I never found a knit shop), and watched the Olympics. I even managed to squeeze in some knitting time (mostly while driving across Nevada--more on that later). I made a little progress on my Ravelympics socks, but I'm getting a little worried they may not make it to the medals round. Why do I always underestimate how long a project will take?
I'm loving the way the colors are striping, and the Cedar Creek pattern is a fun, easy knit. The first time I knit this pattern was in the first year of the Rockin' Sock Club. They were the second pair of socks I ever knit, and I thought the pattern was really hard. What a difference a couple of years of knitting makes!
Oh, yeah, the drive across Nevada. It is a very wide state, it takes about 7 hours to drive across, so it's really good for knitting. It's also good for napping, which I did while Larry was driving. During one of my short naps, Larry stopped the car. In the Middle of Nowhere.
He stopped to have a chat with Trooper Tanner, who after writing Larry a speeding ticket, was a good sport and held my sock for a Kodak moment.
Don't forget about my blogiversary contest, the deadline is tomorrow!
