This is one happy pair of socks, a pair of socks that will keep the feet warm just because of the electric colorway. Count me and my feet very happy, indeed.
Yesterday two packages arrived on my doorstep. The last shipment of Mama E’s Twisted Knitter Fiber Club arrived. What a great colorway this is! It's Summer Solstice and it does look like many of the flowers in the gardens around here. Also, included was a handmade spindle AND it spins nicely! It will go along with me to Estes and I'll see if I can entice some of my non-spinning mates to give it a go. Nice work, Erin!
The other package was a couple of skeins of STR. Truly, truly...I could not live without Knitty Rocks. I couldn't...I tried...for about 3 weeks, and I swear I was at deaths door when I hit BUY. I was feeling a little better, saw Sherbet...couldn't resist, and added it to my order, too. The best part (OK it wasn't THE best part, but it is darn cool) is the sticker that was included in the shipment. NSK - Notorious Sock Knitter! That's ME (and you too, no!?)
I've been on pins and needles the last few days just waiting for the week, my week, to end. Tomorrow morning Blogless Val, Karen, Cheryl, Miriam and I, will be heading off to Estes Park and the Wool Market. Yes, there will be 5 of us in one car (please pray for us), but it will be well worth it. Wool festivals are better than Christmas...way better. My knitting bag is packed, including a spindle. The second Loksins! should get lots of attention and I'm packing supplies for another pair of Monkey socks, just.in.case.
I had hoped to use car time to make progress on FJ, but it might just be too fussy to mess with. After reading, rereading, rereading and reading again. I think I have deciphered the hieroglyphics enough to continue. Mim seems to agree with my assessment so, maybe FJ will become an Effed Oh later this month, instead of just effed off.
To keep emails to a minimum (because I can't keep up as it is), I've decided not to post tomorrow (we'll be out o'here at o'dark thirty), and since we'll be back late Sunday afternoon, you can plan on a post from me come Tuesday. I'm taking Monday off to regroup and and rest up from the fabulous (you know it will be) weekend. Enjoy your weekend, too!
