and friday was also Rider Pride day at school.. again.
the reason... 4 riders were bringing the grey cup to the hockey game on sunday... so what the elemetary school did you have to dress up in your best Rider green and white and some of the Monarchs ( the hockey team guys)
were going to pick out 4 kids to go out to center ice before the game to meet the riders.
This is what Naiomi wore:
DJ and Naiomi went up and got the shirt signed
Since Albert paid $5 for me to get into the game I thought I should stay... well about 5 mins into the first period I was BORED!!!!
I should of brought my knitting... but didn't...
I went home when there was 7 mins left in the first period... I just couldn't handle it any more.
I knit on the socks I'm making for Naiomi
I'm using more Knitpicks Swish that I got from Iva ( and a bit of acrylic for the stripes) it's worsted weight so these socks are going super fast!! I cast on 40 sts on 3.75mm circs magic looping them all the way... I started out with 2 socks on 1 circ.. but it was slowing me way down!! I took one off and finished 1 sock in a day... I'm up to tthe heel turn on sock #2 now... these socks are so nice and warm I'm glad Naiomi and myself have the same size feet... so when she's not wearing them curling I get to wear them too...lol
When I came back later to pick them up.... Albert told me that he won 2 rider tickets for a game this yr... cool beans... I hope live football is more exciting than hockey...
I'll be taking my knitting just incase!
