Wednesday Post!

I haven't talked about knitting in a while - once I get home in a month I'm planning on placing a huge KnitPicks order, but until then, I'm working with what I have. I'm almost finished with the "Fall Socks" (so-called because they are fall colors. Duh.)

Orangina has been floating around my knitting bag for over a year. I started this project excitedly, before I realized that I hated knitting lace. I'm not sure what to do about it. I spent 2 hours trying to get through one row the other night (one stitch is missing somewhere), and then threw it on the ground in frustration. This picture is dark and ugly because that is how I feel about this particular piece of knitting.

I really like how the lace looks, though. So, option one is to keep on plugging, and have a finished top sometime around March, which may or may not fit. (I read that this stretches like crazy, so I made up a XXS size, which could end up being tiny.) Or, I could repurpose this yarn into something else, like a Honeymoon Cami. I guess that decision will have to wait, however, since I don't have anymore yarn with me beside what's already been knitted.
In Yellowstone news, last week we also went canoeing on Hebgen Lake. The lake is about 10 miles from my house (down a really, really bumpy dirt road), and is so picturesque its insane. My shoulders really got a workout trying to paddle back from the very choppy lake center (I felt like I was on whitewater), and I was in some serious pain the next day. However, the whole experience was quite relaxing. I need to build myself a lake in my backyard in New Mexico.

As I'm sitting in the library typing this, two women keep going into the bathroom together. (It's a "onesie" - just a toilet and a sink in one room.) They appear to be mother and daughter, the daughter being college-aged. The first time I thought, "They must be washing they hands or something." But, then later on they went in there together again. What is going on here?
