Consolation Prizes!

Since I’m probably the only sock knitter anywhere who won’t be going to Sock Summit this August (too close to new grandbaby’s arrival)… I took full advantage of Knitpicks recent sale on sock books… I got The Eclectic Sole by Janel Laidman And Knitted Socks by Anna Tillman AND Sock Innovation by Cookie A (woohoo!) Not quite as good as being there in person, but lots of good reading and knitting inside! (I suspect a certain person will expect a certain pair of socks now, though) I’ve been super busy putting the finishing touches on the Knit-Out event for next week. I can’t believe it’s almost here. But I am getting pretty excited. I’ve also had house guests for most of the week. C and M who are students at St. Louis Christian College and are doing their Lab week here at our church have been staying with me. They have been pretty easy guests for the most part they get up have breakfast, then head out and aren’t back until late in the evening. C is a pretty awesome crocheter and we’ve had a lot of fun doing needlework together and visiting when they return in the evening. I think I’ve convinced her that she needs Ravelry (hee, hee, hee). So I have had time to do some knitting. I’m almost done with the Falling Leaves Socks and have made forward progress on the Delve front. Hopefully I’ll have some knitting pictures to post soon. We have had two sunny days in a row which is really nice. (The curbberg is no more, yay) Happy Knitting Nana

Huzzah for conquering the curbberg!

Also, the grandbaby in progress totally apologizes for causing scheduling conflicts so early in her existence...

Sorry...

We'll miss you, but you got some great items there...
(and I suspect that grandchild is way more important than Sock Summit!)
