To be honest, I haven’t been knitting that much lately. I have, however, managed to drop off all of the beautiful knitted toques and headbands at one of the many Montreal drop off centres for the 25 000 toques organization! As of the writing of this post, they have 7952 toques that have been donated for Syrian refugees. Impressive. Thanks again to all of my wonderful knitting friends for contributing – you know who you are. 😉
The drop off point was a cute little café called Pagaille, in the Plateau area of Montréal. They also have some pretty nice latté art.
And for all of those of you curious about some of those unfinished projects, here is one that has been sitting on my needles for quite some time. I started this back in September of last year to practice my stranded colourwork skills. I completely underestimated the change in gauge when changing colours (from knitting continental style), which resulted in a sock that was way smaller than I expected. Needless to say, I’m not too sure what I’ll end up doing with my one finished sock that’s much too small for any normal sized foot.
Tonight is our last night in Alma, Quebec, which is a cute little town of 30,000 people about 2 and a half hours north of Quebec City. Our time here has been spent visiting with friends, trying out the beer at the local microbreweries (Le Lion Bleu and Riverbend)and exploring the kooky neighbourhoods. Tomorrow we head back to Montreal for one last night and from then on it will be hours of fun at the airport back and forth before I reach my final destination of Auckland, New Zealand. It’s currently 25 degrees Celsius and sunny in Auckland, which will be a nice change from the -10 degrees Celsius snowy weather that I have been enduring here in Quebec.
What are your WIP knitting achievements so far?
