A Knit Decision

Knitting in Oregon, with other stuff, too, such as crochet, cats, dogs, history, fashion, highly opiniated rants, reading, diabetes, church, life in general, etc. I like circular needles, prefer natural yarns, don't spin, choose small projects, and don't have any one favorite yarn store. I love them all.

Turned two corners



Or rather, two heels.


I have turned my third and fourth heel ever! I feel the power!


I was aiming for eye of partridge stitch, and I'm not sure I did it correctly, but nonetheless, the heels are turned. They are also nice and thick and should wear well.


And I did them while riding up to visit relatives, and while visiting relatives, including the World's Cutest Nieces.


Yes, it is an official title. They won it fair and square. They are 10 and 7 and 7. Blond hair, blue eyes, and a set of twins.


These socks fit me very well, and I am excited to finish them and wear them myself.


'Course now, Dr. Parts wants his socks to be finished at the same time, silly goose. Hasn't he ever heard of gauge?


I am psyched about going to the Black Sheep Gathering in June in Eugene, Oregon. I am debating whether I should take any classes. They have openings in the mitten class, in the Design-your-own-sock class, a couple of rug classes, and a few other interesting ones. I should probably take the class on finishing techniques. Or should I go down early Friday morning with my credit card and scour the booths for the Blue Moon booth. I can blow my entire budget there, no doubt. And knit more wonderful socks. And soft scarves.


Ommmmmmm, Blue Moon. I'm working up to a sock trance. Oooommmmmmmm, Blue Moon.

I told you sock knitting is addicting. And I think you might be right - those are really some gorgeous girls...if they were boys you'd have a run for your money with my kid....ha ha

Ok Lori, if you go to the BMFA booth ask for me. I might be in the vicinity, as I will be helping Tina out that weekend. Are you doing the KIP at the beer fest this weekend? And/or seeing Yarn Harlot on Friday night?
