So, after feeling like road kill yesterday, I headed to Knitters Nite at Rumplestiltskin, it was exactly what I needed. Tons of laughter, lots of shared stories about unthinkable subjects, such as having hairy legs, and our ever expanding hips, oh, and lets not forget our ever growing yarn stash. But the very best part of the night, a scrumptious chocolate treat that Kim brought to Miriam to celebrate her birthday. It was chocolate decandence at its best!!! Kim you are an awesome cook!!!
The conversation was so interesting that some of us kept making mistakes in our knitting, LOL. If you have ever been to a knitters get together, you can imagine that it gets to be a little bit difficult keeping track of what you are knitting when the conversation is hot, hot, hot. So, a rule for me for knitters nite--take something mindless like a bag that is going to be felted and is completely done with stockinette stitch ;).
I worked on my sock, and I got some pointers from Miriam, like tugging at the first stitches. It is going a lot better now, and I have about 3 inches knitted. It looks nice and thick, it will make a good slipper sock. The first rows though were really difficult to get used to, all those pointy needles going every which way trying to poke your eyes. The next hurdle, the heel.
Well, I am off and I will post again as soon as I come back from the Road Trip--wish us luck :).
