israel etc

I just got back from 10 days away in Israel/Istanbul. It was soooo amazing and everything was incredibly beautiful. And on the first day after an incredibly long journey, I got engaged! It was a beautiful night and now onto planning! I like planning things so this should be fun. 
Also while in Israel I finished my socks!! I thought I would be able to finish them on the flight but knitting and flying made me feel a bit sick and so it took me longer than expected. The weather was really hot anyway so I didn't need the socks while away, not that I need them back in Toronto either. Anyway I am very pleased with the final product! I messed up the first sock by not continuing in the pattern on the top near the heel, but I just did the same thing with the second sock and it looks fine. I really LOVED making these socks! The process was fun and a lot easier than I had expected. I really recommend knitting a pair of socks to any knitter!!! Just do it! And if you need help maybe I can help you! Again, the pattern that I used was Hermione's everyday socks which is a free pattern on ravelry! If anyone has any other free sock pattern recommendations please send them my way! 
This weekend is the second Gladstone Flea! It should be awesome! If you're in Toronto come check it out!
