Chopper’s Gotcha Day

Another week or so has gone by.  Still busy with Crossfit and derby.  On Saturday we had a “ref education” day where the players came to skate so we could learn.  We had a great turnout.  It was five hours long and there was lots of sneakery and crazy scenarios thrown it to keep us on our toes.  Fantastic day of learning!

taking a break!

Yesterday was Chopper’s First “Gotcha Day” anniversary with us.

He’s definitely settled into his retirement and put on a bit of needed weight in the past year:

I finished (and shipped off) the purple socks I’d been working on.  They turned out great!  The Ravelry project page is here.

I had forgotten what a fun pattern it is to work on.  After the first few rounds, it is easy to memorize the pattern repeat.

Still can’t decide what sweater I want to make next, so I took some of my newest sock yarn and started some socks.  This is Biscotte & Cie “Felix” self-striping sock yarns.  Simply fabulous!

I have a few more hanks of this yarn in different colourways, so I will probably use them up next.
