Weekend Recap

This weekend began a little early when we headed out of town to visit my mother and brother for the weekend. I love car knitting. The project of choice was my Blurred Lines socks which had been languishing in the WIP pile for a bit.

20131007-061612.jpgThe main purpose of this particular trip was to build a new set of stairs and a small deck for my mom’s place. Her stairs were getting rickety and falling apart. We set out early on Saturday morning to start construction.

  1. Lovely socks and great looking stairs. Congrats on finishing the first sock, and already starting the second.

  2. I like your finished sock. I wish I could knit in the car, but I get motion sickness. Great construction project too!

  3. So handy! How cool to build new stairs for your mum. The first sock is terrific! It has character and detail.
