Leavin' On A Jets Go Plane...

This morning I woke up at 6:30 am to take my parents to the airport for their flight to see my ill uncle in Lethbridge. Did you know the sun is not up at 6:30 am? I also did one of those "I'm not going to hear the alarm so I better check it every 5 minutes" thing for the last hour of sleep. Needless to say, I am t-i-r-e-d. Sorry early risers, but I am not a morning person.

So I am very happy my father decided to go with my mum. He was pretty busy there for a while and I thought I would have to go with her, but they delayed going for a wee bit and now they're off. There was absolutely no traffic at the airport which just blew me away. I assumed at 7-7:30 am there would be quite a bit of traffic but it was very quiet and I was in and out of there lickety split.

I knit a pair of slippers for my mother to take with her for my uncle. She also knit her first pair of socks and is giving them to my aunt. I knit them in Toronto Maple Leaf colours knowing my uncle is a Flames fan.

Knitting is going okay I guess. Still working on the shawl, HP scarf, Fan and Feather scarf and want to start working on a scarf for myself. I got this beautiful coat from my husband for my Birthday and I need a scarf to go with it. I'm going to try that loopy method and see how it works out.

Also was thinking about those knitted pot cozies featured in the new Knit 1, but as I discussed on Knitomatic, I may be skidding dangerously close to the crocheted toilet paper topper things. I dunno, it's up for debate. Where is the classy/kitchy line? Where is the separation between cute and senior craft show like?

Other than that not much happening but will post some pics soon as I get batteries for the camera.

Knitting Forever,
Housework Whenever

Hey, since when is any type of tea cosy classy? If you need a cosy for your teapot, why not knit it? In my opinion it's only really kitschy if you don't need it -- if it's a functional item, then what's wrong with that?
(Of course, my taste may be suspect too... so whatever makes you happy!)

Is it just me, but isn't Knit 1 just one big Lion Brand advertising supplement? The hoodies are cute, though.
