Florida was wonderful - two weeks of warm weather, swimming and shopping! I love Target! I want Target to move to Canada! I did visit a nice little shop in Punta Gorda but there wasn't much in the way of sock yarn. In fact, I really do think that there are two categories of knitters, yarn shop knitters and online knitters. This knitting community we have online is absolutely amazing. As we were driving south, I felt as if I knew people in all the states - in Pennsylvannia - it was - oh, I wonder if I'm near where Isobel lives. Crazy, eh?
I did even manage to get some knitting done while I was away and if you can possibly imagine it, a complete pair of socks. My Socks that Rock Sock Club socks - the pattern was from Favorite Socks. They are very comfy and I perhaps might be inspired to finish a pair more often so that I can actually wear them.
These lovelies are a big surprise! The pattern is the cover sock from Favorite Socks and the yarn is....well, ordered and paid for Pick Up Sticks. I won't tell - even with the threat of death - no one is going to pry this out of me! Just trust me, it's fantastic and you are going to love it!
This is I started last night because:
1. I saw Sarah's
2. I have no attention span when it comes to knitting, especially if it's something I haven't tried before
3. I thought some mindless knitting might be good!
It's a mitered square blanket made from Koigu Kersti that I have in my stash - I'm not sure I like how it's coming out but I can see some potential.
So....Sweet Georgia came in and went out - there were so many online (hundreds and hundreds of you!)all trying to buy at the same time! It lasted just a couple of minutes - even with the server glitch - might have been a crash! Paypal even had a hard time keeping up! All the orders are packed up and shipped - big hugs and big thank you's to all of you!
