I Better Blog Today....

because tomorrow I will be out all day taking my daughter to the dentist and then visiting my grandmother and Tuesday I'm going to a new hairdresser for a cut and color. This guy used to do makeovers on Cityline - so I just wonder what he will do to me!

I've been busy finishing up matching socks for their lonely mates that are floating around my knitting bag - it's torture though because there are visions of new socks dancing in my head. I must confess I gave up on the huge Debbie Bliss cardigan - Sarah is going to knit it for me in exchange for yarn. She's happy with that deal and so am I. I just have zero interest in big projects.

Tomorrow my order from Louet arrives - super quick service! I'm very excited to get the solids because there are some beautiful patterns out there that deserve solid yarn to show off the stitches! And how about those Hand Dyeing Kits - I might even have to give dyeing yarn a try!

Oh yes and the sock club boxes went out yesterday - the club is up to 50 members! Yahoo!

I have a cute story - my grandmother was extremely skeptical about this whole selling yarn online business and has asked me regularly (daily) since August how it's going! I told her that last week I sent yarn to Italy and that I've sent yarn to Australia and Norway. Her comment was, "What? I didn't know the internet went that far?"

That's just too cute! You're so fortunate to have your grandmother. She must be very proud of you.

Your grandmother is a hoot! You should tell her tomorrow, when you see her, that all of your internet friends and cusomters send her their regards.

Still laughing here! My family thinks I'm crazy. ;o)

I cast on with the SweetGeorgia today.

I'm trying out the Jaywalker pattern you pictured a few posts ago.

Very exciting.

Thanks again.
