600 kilometres was a long way to go to buy some cherries, but we enjoyed the drive, through a part of South Africa we haven't seen before. I was passenger, so I could knit the pink scarf as I went.
I think the best way of overcoming Second Sock Syndrome (that curious reluctance sock knitters sometimes have to knit the second sock) is to have a deadline. These will be posted within South Africa, so I don't need to worry about international cut-off dates, but even so I need to get them finished and sent off. The pattern is Blackrose by Suzy Anvin, the socks form a set with the wristlets
Wow, I salute your ability to knit while in a moving car. I can't even look down before I start getting whoozy. The sock looks great =)ReplyDelete
I can only knit a very simple thing that I don't have to look at.Delete
yea, I've never gone that far for fruit. Cherries are yummy though! I remember cutting and pitting cherries for Livi when she was just a baby (older baby, not quite toddler- well, maybe toddler... she was young lol). I couldn't cut and pit them fast enough. :o)ReplyDelete
The sock looks cozy :o)
600 km for cherries! You must really like them!ReplyDelete
Fox : )
Cherries are a complete novelty to me! They don't grow in Zimbabwe. I've eaten candied cherries, but not fresh or bottled ones.Delete
Ah - that explains it!ReplyDelete
I am not a big jam or jelly fan, but I do really like cherry jam once in a while, and it is readily available here. So, I do understand. Enjoy the cherry jam!!!
Fox : ))
p.s. Fresh cherries here are usually abundant and are absolutely delicious and very healthy though expensive. The blossoming trees are so beautiful as well.ReplyDelete
It was rather daft to travel such a long way to a cherry festival, but we like to explore SA a bit if we have the chance.ReplyDelete
