Peruvian Adventure! Uno October 24, 2011

Did you miss me?

I totally missed writing posts. But I had zero free time while on my trip, and multi tasking time was low.

But, I WENT TO PERU FOR A WEEK!

From 6 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday, I was in a project management course for my work. Yarn stores in Lima are few, you can find mostly knitted, crochet, and woven accessories rather than yarn. But I was undaunted and I had done my research.

So let’s start at the very beginning. I packed and brought samples and projects enough for the week.

On the plane, I finished a seed stitch shawl. However, I made the mistake of starting the shawl with the color that had less yarn. This means that I ran out of yarn halfway through the bind off.

But it’s okay, I had the second color to bind off with to meet in the center.

And I had this tiny amount left of Socks that Rock lightweight yarn. I completed two seed stitch shawls with two skeins of yarn. Talk about waste not want not!

I also finished the LSU BeerSox

On Sunday, I went tooting around town with the brother of one of my dad’s friends. We had amazing ceviche at a restaurant right at the beach!

We also went searching for yarn, but, alas came back empty handed.

Later that night, I went to dinner with a woman who designs carpets and rugs. The restaurant was right up onthe edge of the cliffs at the oceanfront.
