WIP Wednesday.

After I spent Friday and Saturday in Ashland, I came home for a day and a half, then Smokey and I headed to a cabin on the North Shore for a few days. We had a couple packing accidents: Smokey's CPAP machine, in its own little black nylon suitcase, made it from upstairs to the front stoop but not from there into the car; my knitting, in its custom-designed box (more on that another time), never made it from the dining room table downstairs and into the car.

Unlike a diabetic forgetting his insulin, it is not life-threatening for him to forego the CPAP machine for a few days. On the other hand, knitting is essential to life itself, but I had my trusty Emergency Knitting bag with the brioche cowl inside. Tragically, I finished that before we had even reached Duluth. Happily, there is a lovely yarn store in Duluth that was happy to sell me some yarn for a new project.

Three Irish Girls PLUS  Cascade Heritage

EQUALS ANOTHER PAIR OF DOUBLE-STRANDED SOCKS.

The yarns are (variegated) Three Irish Girls Adorn sock and (dark red) Cascade Heritage. Both yarns are delightful to knit. The TOGirls color is Cooler By The Lake, which is a local phrase. The older part of Duluth is near the lake, the newer part is "on top of the hill." While it may be hot on the hill, it is always cooler by the lake.

The socks will ensure that my feet are never in that [cooler] condition.

    You forgot your knitting? Oh, the horrors! Glad you were able to fix that problem so easily!

    Love all your socks! If that had been my husband, we would have turned around for the CPAP and I would have grabbed my knitting at the same time. But, we still would have stopped at the yarn shop for more yarn. He is an enabler. I hope it was warmer where you went than here on the east side of Lake Michigan. I could use some of your socks.

    Great to know there is a yarn shop in Duluth, I expect to be there a month from now. I’ll be sure to pack my jacket because I’m acclimated to summer after this week in VA!
