It's Here!

Sweet Georgia arrived! The Handpainted Sock is really nice! Even though I've seen the colors before, they are truly beautiful!

This happened on Sunday - these are all the boxes for the Sock Club making their way around the world! We have a member in Australia and one in Korea! I toiled and toiled over the yarn selection for each person. It's very nerve wracking to choose yarn for others (even with some basic color info). Hopefully, everyone will be pleased.

On Sunday we went to a Hospice fundraising Wine and Dine - local restaurants and wineries bring samples and you get to eat and eat and eat and well, yesssss - drink! They had a contest for a patio set - including a serving cart, arbor, cedar beer cooler, even dishes - and my sister and brother-in-law won it! You bought keys and if your key opened the treasure chest you won everything on the stage - Dave had one key out of the 500 that were sold and he won!

It is a miserable, rainy, cold, windy day here - a perfectly good knitting day - but my grandma has a specialist's appointment so off to the city I go.

Two new yarns have been ordered! It's a surprise - but they are handpainted sock yarn in amazing colors! They both should be here at the beginning of November. 30 skeins of Butterflynet Knits are being dyed this weekend. Oh and I think my Claudia yarn might have been arrested at customs - just like Posh - it was shipped on October 5th and it's still not here.

On the knitting front, I've been working away on the log cabin blanket for my sister-in-law and I must finish 5 pairs of Thrum mittens for Greg's family Christmas on December 2 - so you can gather, that my lonely socks without partners are not getting partners any time soon. AND......I really, really, really want to knit the Sock Club sock. Meghan did an amazing job on the pattern - it's fantastic!
