Sock It To Me Monday

I finished a pair of socks last week. I’m calling these socks Halloween socks, but I have been told the orange looks like pink in most light. Oh well. I took these socks to work on in Wisconsin. The yarn is from Marilee, so it was almost like having her there with me.

I’m not feeling socks right now, which is frustrating because I have a large sock yarn stash and a desire to have more handknit socks. I hope the mojo returns soon, as I have lots of fall yarn I would like to turn into socks this year.

FO Friday

I finished my first Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival project: a beer mug beanie. I bought a kit for this hat, yet ran out of black yarn. I adjusted the crown decreases and used two stands of sport in a very close black.

I Went to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival and All I Got Was Amazing Memories and Lots of Yarn.

There are times when an experience is so great it is hard to put into words. My trip to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival was like that.

Last weekend I headed to Wisconsin with my Woolies, Kirsten, Jess, and Ivy. Bonny was there too (and, to be honest, after I met her the first time she was immediately one of my best friends. We just clicked. She’s awesome). Alissa flew in from Ohio to round out the group. It was my first time meeting her in person, and it was just so great. It is like I’ve known her forever. The whole group got along great, and we spent a lot of time knitting and laughing. I finally had a group to play Knitters Against Swatches with.

I’ve had a hard time transitioning back into my real life. I’m already counting down the days until we go back next year.
