One down, one to go..

Finished a goose today! I'm really pleased with how this has turned out. If I look too closely, I can find all of my mistakes, but hopefully no one else will notice!

I even successfully managed the whole kitcheners stitch thingy! I had to recite the entire process outloud while I did it, but it actually came out well. It wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.

So, the question is... will I be able to finish the second sock by 8:00 p.m. Saturday when Kathy is due to arrive? I think I can do it. I have a lot of time to knit on Thursday. Friday, I have knitting fun planned with two new knitting friends (more on that in a second...) And Saturday during the day, I have knitting group. I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!

New knitting friends...
On Monday night, I had the extreme honor to meet the ever talented and creative Eunny and Amie. I had such a nice time. Truly lovely women. Eunny and I met at Panera and got to chat and knit for awhile. Amie was able to join us a bit later. It was very cool to put faces to these bloggers! I got to see the famous Deep V argyle vest live and in person. And Amie's self-dyed yarn turning into a very cute baby sweater. Oh... I'm supposed to spread rumors about Eunny. Amie already mentioned the baby eating and kitten kicking so I'll just say that there was talk of devil worship. (It would explain Eunny's speed in knitting!) It may be just a rumor, but ya never know! ;)

In my copious spare time today, (Two shows today. I despise matinees!) I got a little crazy on Knit Picks. I ordered a bunch of sock yarn, including some Color Your Own, Palette and Parade. Soooo bad of me. But, but, but... I really wanna try Koolaid yarn dying! And I really wanna give Eunny's argyle socks a try! (I have brown and pink in mind) And, and... I really don't need any green stripey sock yarn, but I love green! What can I say? It's just a sickness, isn't it?

Green is not a sickness. Green is a sign of health.

I'm designing a sweater of brown, pink, and cream argyle (I had the design in mind long before I met Eunny, so maybe it's something in the water) and I think brown and pink are terrific together... like neopolitan ice cream!!!! Mmmm.....

You can spread the rumor about how Eunny knows who was on the Grassy Knowl that auspicous November Day many years ago... I didn't spread that one yet.

See you tomorrow!

Brown and pink are my fave color combo! ;) I think that will be brilliant! I would love to hear how the Knitpicks Color Your Own works up. I want to try their sock weight yarn.

So sorry I missed you all the other night in Columbia - it is a bummer that I had to do school work. This coming Monday is looking more promising - any plans for next week? Hope you all have fun in Catonsville this afternoon - too bad I have work (you did get my email, right?)

Let me know about this Monday - I would love to meet you!
