Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

Sheep! And Wool! And Wool! And Sheep!

Maryland Sheep and Wool 2007 rocked! No migraine and no sunburn this year! (Alas, no lamburger, which was sad.)

More Mannings
Koigu, # 1008

While at the Mannings booth there was a woman standing next to me, and someone went pushing behind us, and pushed the woman into the big wall of koigu. She made a “hrmph” noise and glared at the pusher (because really, it’s MDS&W, there’s no call for shoving!) and I said “Well, there are worse things to be shoved into, I suppose.” The woman stepped back, and realized she’d been pushed into a big wall of koigu and agreed it could be worse.

    You could almost think my screen was adjusted with too much blue…but now, that’s just a lot of blues, purples, and greys that you bought! Yay! Sheep and Wool! Good luck on finals!

    Thanks for the awesome pictures! I really like that Tussah silk/merino blend and (of course) the Tess designer yarn!

    Wow! What a great haul you have — lots of sock knitting in your future? I’m having a lot of fun thinking of designs and yarn for the next pair of socks I’ll be knitting and these socks are for YOU!

    I have this odd feeling *I* might have been the “harrumphing” lady at the Mannings booth (big pink backpack and purple glasses?), though I’m certain that scenario happened eleventy-million times that weekend. Darn, smashed into the wall o’ Koigu! Oh, however shall I recover from this indignity? ; )
