Trends Part 2
Lucy Neatby, another Rock Star in the knitting world, came to The Woolie Ewe and taught a couple of workshops.
Lucy and me.
Sue and Audrey.
Betty and Tasha.
Of course, I bought some of Lucy's yarn - Celestial Merino and Cat's Pajamas - to make some socks.
The battery is dead in my camera; so, while you are waiting to see the yummy colored yarn, I will leave you with a diversion...almost as yummy:
In other news, my BFF Amy and I have a two person sock club going. We started in March. I knitted up my Opal Zebra colorway - and just finished grafting the toes. So sue me, I'm not the most timely person. Anyway, in April, we did the Monkey pattern, and I had them just about finished, when I decided that they were too small. I had gone down a couple of needle sizes to get gauge, but they were tight getting on my feet. I figured that one too many times of forcing the socks on my feet might prove lethal to them. So....I ripped them out. They are still my April socks, but I will be knitting-and-hopefully-finishing them in May. For May, we have decided to each do a pair of toe up socks. Pictures forthcoming, and all that...
