I gotta sock!
fabulous Yarntini superwash merino in Project Runway pair - Make It Work! and Carry On! Better pic of the heel/ toe/ cuff here.
This sock went so quickly - I just cast on 64 stitches and stockinetted my heart out. I finished the toe on a "knitting cruisette" last night - check out pictures here (we were chatting away in a corner and weren't in any and I forgot my camera - doh!:)The weather was kind of sketchy, but we hardly noticed as we knit and talked and ate. It was put on by Wool and Company located in Geneva, Il. They had wine, cheese, fruit and desserts. It is about 2 hours from my house - and it was so worth the ride to hook up with my non-blogging friend Christine's, non-blogging friend Carolyn. Did you follow that? I met Christine through a swap several years ago, she is from Massachusetts. Her friend, Carolyn, moved from Mass. to the Chicago area where, I believe, she grew up. I was lucky enough to meet them both in person last fall in Chicago - and now, Christine is sharing her knitting friend, Carolyn, with me. How do you like that knitters? Knitters are awesome - I mean, sharing whole friends. I feel blessed to know such fabulous women. And the gelato, ooey gooey bar and smore bites before the cruise were the icing on the cake. I love that Carolyn likes dessert as much as me.
Speaking of fabulous women, Tiffany of Tigglegiggles.com has spoiled me in a great swap - sharing many of her coveted munki prints for some of my less coveted ones. I am *this* close to cutting into some munki for a quilt. Makes me shiver to think about it. October 1 is the kick off date with this flickr group.
I hope you are all well! Have a great week!
