Just realized I hadn't posted in a bit. I guess family drama has kept my mind tied up elsewhere.
For beginners DH and I went to Charlotte Yarn Shop on Sunday the 7th to meet
Wendy Johnson author of Socks From the Toe Up. I don't normally buy sock books because first of all, there are a ton of a patterns out there on the Internet and I also enjoy designing my own. However, since I have been reading Wendy's blog forever I had to buy it. She was really awesome, very down to earth and extremely funny.
I won these from the Charlotte Yarn Shop:
A set of six stitch markers made by the Spotted Sheep Studio. Two of them are marking the middle of my Iceland Shawl - one of my UFO's that I work on one day a week. What stinks is I misplaced my pattern, I always place the pattern with the yarn and I mark it up so if I put my knitting down say for oh a year, I can come back to it and pick up where I left off. Good thing because of the color change I was able to figure out where I was.
I am still working on the Lacy Rib socks and just about to start the cuff.
They are resting on my new KIP bag by 3AM Enchantment bought at the Loopy Ewe. Isn't that bag pattern so adorable? and how about the very cute sheep zipper pull? I have bought enough from the Loopy Ewe that I had a $25.00 credit and it was burning a hole in my pocket LOL. So I not only got the bag but some wonderful Dream in Color Smooshy yarn for an Outlander KAL I will be starting soon on Raverly.
