The Hurrier I Go The Behinder I Get



In honor of Socktoberfest (at which I have been failing miserably ) here is my sock stash. Socks that Rock, Claudia's, Koigu, Lorna's, Cherry Tree Hill, Sockotta - they're all there. Waiting. Impatiently.
I
am
slow
at
socks.
I haven't even finished the sock I started 2 months ago for my mother. I'm talking about the first sock - not the pair. I don't even know if I ever posted a picture. They are supposed to be the Broadripple socks from Knitty. Cute. The first one is about 10 minutes from finished. The second one is about 6 years from finished considering I started the first one in the summer.



Here is some better news. Fetching. They are very fetching. That is the correct color but I couldn't get them to sit still long enough to get a clear picture. This yarn definitely doesn't show the cables but they are nice on the wrist and this particular yarn is handspun merino, silk and mohair. OOOhh, AAAhh.
Very soft.
I would definitely recommend this pattern. Quick, easy and delightful on your hands.









Here is Sara. No H please. We had dinner at Macaroni Grill. She ordered Spaghetti. Who orders spaghetti at Macaroni Grill. Her mom (my sister) said she's a girl who doesn't like change. I think she was right.
Tomorrow we have plenty of errands. Go to the bank for the last of the paperwork. Return a book I bought by accident at Borders. I didn't really buy it by accident. I just didn't look carefully enough at it before I bought it. I thought it was a book about websites but really, not.
After Borders, off to circuit city to buy a laptop! WooHoo!
Meijer for a phone charger since Sara forgot hers and also Gallon zip bags good for traveling. Go meet Nora. She was born on Sunday. 5 pounds 4 ounces. Cute as a button in the pictures. We won't stay long. She's new.
Then off to Threadbear. The kind of yarn store Sara has never seen in her life. Then stop at the spinning store on the way home.

Sometime tomorrow I have to clean the car, pack, pack my knitting, pack the car and did I mention Kelle's now going again!

Tonight I finished my laceweight skein for Rhinebeck. It's drying. I also reblocked Lilly to make her sides nice and even. She's drying.

Thursday night in the hotel I think I'll have to label and tie the skeins and label Lilly.
Holy Crap I have a lot to do.
I will be at the meetup on Saturday along with Kelle and Sara at 1:00 outside building E. See you there I hope.

Nice stash. You've got some definite winners in there. the wrist warmers look good, and with the yarn they are made of, how can they be anything but lucious? Have fun at Rhinebeck. Good luck with the yarn & Lilly!

where is the spinning store in the Lansing area? I have a very good friend that I visit regularly in Lansing, and I'd like to add a spinning store to the obligatory Threadbear visit.
