I’ve been a pretty dreadful knit blogger lately, but I have a great excuse – I got married on Sunday and am now in Argentina on my honeymoon for two weeks! (Yes, blogging on the honeymoon. So romantic.)
Right now I’m in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. Picture South America – Ushuaia is a city located at the very bottom pointy part, near Antarctica.
Here’s my latest sock in progress enjoying the view…
Note that the mountains in the distance are snow capped, even though it’s the middle of the summer down here.
Here’s the sock enjoying the view in the other direction, down the Beagle Channel…
Argentina is famous for its beef, but down in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego the real specialty is the lamb.
Yes, lamb. As you read that, all you knitters out there thought the same thing as I did. Lamb = wool = yarn stores.
I will make it my mission to seek out Patagonian yarns and report back to you on my findings, however posting may be spotty for the next 10 days or so.
