Tourists

Saturday we went to the annual Crappie (perch) Festival in Crescent City.  It is always fun to walk around the booths for 'deals' and for fresh veggies.  We got adventuresome after our tour of the main square and went to a new Bistro.  
We sat outside in the sunshine and had a great lunch.  
The walk down to Crescent Lake put a nice finishing touch on our day!
I have completed one sock in the Snowflower pattern from the latest issue of Interweave Knits.  I saved the pattern for the leg only and it worked out perfectly.  I learned a new cable stitch since I have never cabled with two cable needles but it was easy after the first few awkward attempts!

  4. I feel a bit envious about those glorious sunny days - we've had grey and cold for too long here! but I saw the first snowdrops a few days ago, so I am hoping that spring is only a few weeks away:) no sitting outside for a while here, though - unless I'd wear a fur coat:)
