The footie is about done also. I can't wait to finish it up so I can start on MORE socks. LOL. Jo Ann's had a ton of their yarn marked down, I mean really marked down. So yesterday I dove in. I am planning on knitting my daughter and some of her friends, Halloween socks so I was pretty happy when I seen that they had a lot of black and orange cotton marked down. I also picked up some orange "wiggles" yarn. I have no idea what I will do with those two skeins, but they looked cute. I got 4 skeins of Cara Mia TLC, I had to get that because it felt so good.
While at Jo Ann's I was asked by a girl, I'd say in her mid 20's for help in picking a yarn because she wanted to learn how to knit. So I got to help her out. That was so much fun. I talked with her this morning and we are going to meet up this week because she has some questions. Very Cool.
Friday night at coffee, the lady (Dot) I had written about earlier showed up with some of her knitting. Her socks were breath taking. Very detailed intarsia work. She explained a little bit of the history behind each of the socks she brought, and I was in heaven. Before I knew it, we had talked 2 hours. She wants to see some of my work. Compared to her's I'm a little hesitant.
Off to do more edging...
