I got to snuggle wee Panda, and kiss his little head, and fingers, and toes, and generally anything that came close. I had a delightful visit with the kids. I was very sad to come home. He is a beautiful little boy, and his parents are enjoying him immensely.
Upon my return, I was busy with the store and life in general. I still can't believe that it's December already. I don't have nearly enough holiday knitting completed!
The store was asked to teach a class at the Scugog library again. This is a fund raiser for the library, and we were happy to oblige. The ladies are so enjoyable, and the setting is really quite nice. While at the class one day, I solved a mystery: How does this happen?
One of our regular customers had done this, and both Barb and I were perplexed as to how it happens. Now I know! When casting on, using a knitted on technique, be sure to put your stitch marker in behind you, not in front. I created my usual möbius twist, so I didn't have to break the stitch marker out. Whew! Now I know why I love my Clover markers so much!
There has been lots of knitting in the past two months ... I'll track down my projects and pictures for you. Soon. I also promise not to be gone for so long next time.
