Sometimes…

Imbrium told me all about Sock Summit and showed me the new stash acquirements. ^.^ Pictures are great, but when your friends let you pet their purchases… I know sounds a little off, but knitters know…

The best part ever was that Imbrium showed me how to make purls on a long tail cast on. Best.thing.ever. I can’t wait to cast something on. (Socks, it’s just a matter of time.)  There was also this sort of vertical knitting thing, that just fascinated me, but I still don’t think I quite get (just saw the swatch).

Thank you Stringgeek and Imbrium for chatting with me while I continue on my plight to finish the Henry scarf. I know, you can hardly tell.

This will be my new spinning project. Blue, as determined by my online friend that I asked to pick a color. It’s Louet wool top that I picked up from Purls of Wisdom quite some time ago. The color way just had to come home with me. I have a couple more samples finish up, then I will be ready to start. It will be the first full project since the beginning of this year (if not last year).

Thing 1 spotted this evening and has decided I can make her a jellyfish out of it.  I told her that’s an awful lot of spinning to do by Christmas.  She said I could make one next year instead so then the purple one could have a boyfriend.  *giggle* Ah… to be 10.

And We’re Back…

My friend recently asked me if I had started knitting anything else.  Me?  World’s slowest knitter?  Why no!  I’m still knitting a scarf.  She said if the recipient doesn’t like it, she would be more than happy to acquire it.  I think this is the second repeat.

Then she said I was probably using the cheap yarn on the scarf I’m pondering out for her.  ‘It must be like 98 cents or something.’  Oh, wouldn’t that be nice?  Super cheap, super awesome yarn?
