yes, there's been knitting. not much, since we were in the midwest for a sort of mini-vacation last week. while wandering through the gardens of the newly remodeled museum, i stumbled across this interesting sculpture...
could it be an actual larger-than-life skein of yarn? i'll never know since i wasn't smart enough to read the placquard about the piece. can anyone guess where we were? here's a hint, the city was founded by this man, a belgian in fact!!
that's right, father hennepin whose statue is located right in front of the basilica of st. mary.
that should be enough to give it away. if you still haven't figured it out, here's a dead giveaway...one of the most famous icons of the city
as far as actual knitting goes? i decided to frog the anastasia socks - after several attempts i couldn't get a grasp of the wrap and turn technique of a toe-up. i kept getting these strange holes, let's call them eyelets, on one side of the toe cap. instead, i started a jaywalker from the top down, and of course now i am freaking out because i feel as if i am going to run out of yarn and i am not even halfway through the foot!!
