Time Lapse no.2


We spent the weekend in London as Mr JK was running the Vitality North London Half Marathon today and I took the opportunity of some uninterrupted car knitting to make a start on my Fibre East sock project. Here's how the weekend panned out.

14:35 Woodford. A tasty snack in Costa Coffee before the drive back to Norfolk; finisher's medal worn with pride by Mr JK who finished the race in under 2 hours, beating his previous best by almost 15 minutes! Yay for Mr JK!!

Wow! I'm impressed at how quickly you knitted that sock. I was in south London today and we had cloud and drizzle. So it looks like north London had the better weather.

Gorgeous! I'm always jealous of knitters that manage to knit up multiple pairs of socks. I've only ever knit one sock... so, I know I can do it, I just have never gotten around to knitting a pair :-/
