I said Good-Bye
to Tweed (oh my!)
I know that there’s supposed to be ribbing. Even with the ribbing – I have parts that I appreciate, I just don’t need everyone else appreciating them! And I’m not too happy with the increases that stop before you get to "start sleeve" section. (Go on, click the picture to enlarge and check it out.)
A few new arrivals –
Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock Stripe from Simply Socks Yarn Company. (More of the "I didn’t get to Rhinebeck" purchases.)
And then I got this, as a thank you from my Knitter’s Tea Swap spoilee, Katrina. A skein of Euroflax Linen (I’ve been wanting to try this yarn for a while!), a Passport Pouch pattern (please don’t say that with wet lips) by Gardiner Yarn Works and a packet of Chai Amore instant spiced tea/latte mix.
This Saturday was a knitting meet-up. 6 of us turned out and watched Jeanne untangle her yarn. Now THAT’s entertainment!
We also talked about Stitches East. I’m going with Amy and Chris. Jeanne is taking Helen (and I don’t know who else!). We’re all pretty excited about it. There was even some talk about renting an RV – we got a little crazy…I’d rather charter a jet!
I did some pre-Stitches planning, at home. You have to know what bag you’re going to carry. Nothing too heavy, now.
Wes had other ideas. When he heard there was going to be a "big building" full of yarn he measured to make sure he’d fit…
Looked to see if anyone was coming…
And then proceeded to stuff himself into the outer pocket of my messenger bag.
I didn’t tell him I’m not taking that bag. It would crush him.
Next time – the finished Red Rock Canyon socks, Forbes Forest revisited and whatever else I might cast-on.
