On the way to work yesterday I spotted a woman at the bus stop as she was trying on what surely must have been a hand knit sock. The yarn looked to be a self stripping red, white and blue. The bus was right behind me so she would have been gone by the time I stopped to chat.
The weekend is shaping up. It has even turn into a 4 dayer as the boss finally said it was useless to work when everyone else he knew would be off or only working half a day. Expectations were running high that he'll call it a free day and we are very lucky that he did. (He asked that I keep my cell phone on and that's a small price to pay.)
My Trekking socks have been sorely neglected but, this weekend we expect to take a little Trek of some sort. I didn't expect to have so much trouble with the letter "N", but Smith thought of a great 'thing' and now I can't remember what it was. I expect he will remember and we can find our way to it soon. The TrekAlong Blog has had great participation and many Treks across the country (and world) have been posted. Thank you to all who have enjoyed this summer of the Trek so far.
Tomorrow morning I'll meet up with Shannon (her parents live in SLC and she's here for a visit) and head to Silver Fork and Silver Lake. Our expectations for spotting a moose, or two, are running high. Lisa is also coming through on her way to Seattle and my expectation is that she'll have time to stop. Her expectation is to see a moose (and that's fine if she'd rather search for moose than see me).
As many of you know Stephanie is on a book tour and she's coming to Salt Lake. Vonnie at Black Sheep Wool Company called to let me now and so, expectations are running high that many a SLC knitter will be there. That's one expectation that will surely happen. Mark Friday night, September 8th, on your calender and watch for notice of where the event will be. Don't worry about getting a book as Vonnie will have plenty. The night is expected to be a hum dinger.
Expectations are running high that I'll finish CeCe this weekend. If there isn't time for a photo shoot on the weekend one can be scheduled for July 4th. One way or the other another FO is expected next week (and maybe another pair of socks, too).
You can expect to see me back here Monday and maybe for a quick post Tuesday. Wednesday is iffy as I'd like to hike all day Tuesday. (Any of you Stitch 'n Bitch Grrls want to hike? Smith doesn't have the day off.) I expect to come back to Blogland fully loaded with pictures and some good knitting.
I didn't expect to see July so soon!! Enjoy your weekend and your Holiday!
