Today I’m traveling north to visit my sister so we can ravage local garage sales. Whoo hoo hoo! I’ve drank as much coffee as possible. Leftover Halloween chocolate will provide on the road substinance and more coffee will be consumed later. Hopefully it will provide enough “motivation” to keep up with her… she’s fast and furious when it comes to shopping.
These new comfy shoes entered my wardrobe just in time for the marathon.
They’re really soft and big enough to accommodate handknit socks made from my handspun… that means they’re really big.
Last night I experimented with Navajo plying. Overall it was uneven and wonky, but there were some really nice pieces mixed in. With practice I should produce usable sock yarn.
And yes, even though I have multitudes of unfinished projects I cast on a scarf in Kaleidoscope Silk from Cabin Cove Mercantile.
I think this is the branching out scarf… the bottom of the pattern isn’t legible so I’m not positive. It’s strange to use straight needles again.
Speaking of Cabin Cove Mercantile, I have some very strong opinions on this whole messy blog affair. The snarkiness and rudeness of some people out there in cyberspace pisses me off. Would these people who criticized Dave dare to be so brazen face to face? I doubt they’d have the courage. But from the safety of their monitors and keyboards they took it upon themselves to butt into affairs not their own and to leave scathing and unkind comments to someone they’ve never even met. The knitting/blogging community has lost a great contributor now that Dave’s site has been closed to the public. Shame on those rude people.
