Yay! Knitting content today! But first, I have a short (very) pictorial tour of our agility trial in New York this weekend. First, we arrived at the hotel. Two queen beds. Comfy. Spacious. Something looked off.
The trial site was very pretty. At the top of a hill at Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park we could see tree covered terrain all around.
Sunday was much nicer - overcast with a wonderful breeze. Still warm, but without the blazing sun, it felt about 20 degrees cooler. Tucker ended up with a 4th and a 1st for the weekend along with a new Pairs Relay title. The weekend was pretty exhausting - the heat, the long days (USDAA trials run quite a few hours longer than AKC as they have twice as many classes to hold) left us totally wiped out. The drive home was a quiet one.
I did manage to get a little knitting done. I had lots of down time on Saturday, but it was so hot, even the motion of knitting was enough to induce sweating.
For the second sock, I used the "forethought" heel pattern out of Sensational Knitted Socks. Great concept, I think I muffed in the execution somewhere.
Thanks for all the blogiversary wishes - you guys make writing this blog fun!
