I finished Jesper's socks and he loves them - I need to snap a photo too.
I got the momentum to re-start his sweater on smaller needles. I also started the Friday Harbor socks from "Knitting on the Road." They are engaging. I turned the heel last night after my condo association annual meeting.
Tonight I'm taking a co-worker to Eastside Stitchers and will get her knitting - I put together a starter kit :)
Last Sunday afternoon we went sailing on Lake Washington in 25 knot winds - we had the perfect amount of sail up and cruised up to Kirkland to pick up J's co-worker to join us on the lake. It was pretty cold - but no rain!
When we want to go sailing - we always have to open up bridges. To go to the Lake, we have to open University Bridge and Montlake Bridge. Montlake is the best! It is super responsive to opening, sometimes we don't even have to sound our horn. Going the other way, to Puget Sound we have to open Fremont Bridge, Ballard Bridge, go through the locks, then sometimes open the Train Bridge. That last train bridge after the locks is the worst! That guy doesn't respond when we toot out horn like he's supposed to. That place in the waterway has a lot of current, so you can't just float around waiting. Sometimes you have to wait 15 minutes for them to open the bridge after no train even crosses. It's pretty frustrating. Anyway, if anyone knows the lady who works the Montlake Bridge, tell her we love her. (In case you don't get all this opening bridge stuff: We have to raise bridges so we don't break the mast off the boat when we go under it.)
