So if my blog has been unclear so far and you haven’t picked up on this already, my two favourite things to do are ski and knit. I’ll admit it…sometimes I am so dang lazy and I would rather sit on the couch with a new ball of yarn than strap on my skis and drag my ass to the mountain (which is only a five minute walk away – yup…that lazy at times). So when one of those lazy-days strikes me, this is my mantra:
MUST SKI TO KNIT.
There…problem solved! I got up the mountain, which is NEVER something I regret, and now I DESERVE to sit on the couch with my knitting and watch an episode of “Cover Me Canada” (I know it’s an old show, but I just realized the other day that Ali Milner – a Whistlerite – was on the show and I just couldn’t resist supporting her…even if it’s kind of after the fact now…sorry honey).
So in my world, knitting and skiing sort of collide. They go hand in hand. I feel guilty and lazy if I knit on a powder or blue-bird sky day, and I feel cold and exhausted if I just ski all day – haha, just kidding. Skiing all day is NEVER a bad day in my books.
Now a blog post is not a good blog post without some sick pictures. So speaking of knitting and skiing colliding, here’s some pictures I found that reinforce that notion.
Now for a little throw back to early ski resort fashion…these are pure classics!
