I returned to Seattle today after a week out of the loop on Sea Socks '08. Surprisingly I didn't get all that much knitting done. I did a few heels for the classes, a bit of swatching, and worked quite a bit on my plain ol' Noro socks.
As you can see, being totally obsessive about starting the socks at the exact same point
in the color sequence didn't really help. The socks were matching up pretty well until the heel when this happened:
Yup, a knot cutting out a good portion of the color sequence - about 3 inches. That and now there are going to be ends woven in on the bottom of my heel.
But there was a lot more than knitting going on this past week! I went to Ketchikan, AK where I saw totem poles (and rainforest, and an orca, and bald eagles...)
I saw (and heard) the Hubbard Glacier:
I went to Juneau, AK and went on zip lines in the rainforest - at this time of year actually more of a snow forest.
And last night I was in Victoria, B.C. and had tea at the Empress Hotel.
I had an awesome time! In fact I'm secretly plotting a way to move to Juneau and work on zip lines - how cool would it be to do that every day?
