Two of our knitting buddies (Cheryl and Arthella) decided they wanted to get together to learn toe up socks. So we have been meeting periodically and they have really come a long way. They are turning their heels on their toe up socks this weekend. Great job girls. This has sparked us to get back into working on socks too. I am working on Lacy Ribs Socks (2 @ a time) and Chelette is working on a pair of Monkeys. She finished her FLS and just need buttons. Well, we have a new addiction to Yarn. We have been ISO Wollmeise. It started around April when I decided to get some for Chelette’s birthday and then Chelette was able to get some for my birthday. Since then we have learned a lot about the Wollmeise via Ravelry. The yarn is simply beautiful.
We also have been able to get some limited edition Sundara. We love how the updates have changed and are going to be more frequent – I believe every Monday. We fell in love with this yarn via the Seasons sock club.
We will be missing Sock Summit this week. As much as we wanted to be there it just didn’t work out. We couldn’t get any classes – so we didn’t see the point, but plan to get to Seattle/Portland sometime in the near future for sure. Let’s look at it this way we are using Sock Summit money to buy the Sundara and Wollmeise.
One of the reasons I haven’t been posting as frequently is that I finally moved back closer to my job. I am about 10 minutes(if I go real slow) from work and I must say that I do not miss the commute. I have not gotten my internet connected yet so I am way behind on email and keeping up with my blogging friends. I am still going to try to make sit and knit on Wednesdays.
Another reason we haven’t been blogging is Chelette is still celebrating her birthday(hehe…April she has taken a trip every month). Last week she took a trip to Fort Lauderdale. She went with non knitting friends and didn’t get to visit any yarn shops.
Today has been a good day to take out our yarn and see what projects we can assign to yarn we already have. Looks like we have enough yarn to last both of our lifetimes and then some, but who cares. We love it. It is so good to have someone that shares your love for our craft.
I think that’s enough for now. I am sure you missed our Ten on Tuesday, so look for a new one soon.
Again, thank you everyone for your inquires about our absence, we have missed you too!!
