Sock UpdateTuesday, March 22, 2011
My 5 year old sock is finally moving along. I'm almost done with the heel. This is nothing I could have done on my own. It seems like my pattern is in a foreign language.
I've been going to Old Mill Stitchery on Monday evenings. A group of women meet there from 5-7 pm to stitch and knit. I'm looking longingly at the stitcher's projects, but I'm plugging along with my knitting. Robin, their lovely expert, has been guiding me to a finish. I think Robin could knit socks in her sleep.
I feel sorry for her though. I'm sadly discovering I'm a whiner. There have been grumblings from the ladies. They might secretly move to Tuesday nights. I hope they put up with me though. I've been feeling the need of companionship from a group of fun women.
I read the newsletter from The Attic in Mesa, AZ. Jean, the shop owner, has a sampler of the month program. This is the one for March. (I don't know what is wrong with the picture on the pattern cover...but not to worry. Jean sends one along with the pattern.)
I thought, even if I don't get the entire sampler done the basket along the bottom would be wonderful!
Of course, I then proceeded to start in the upper left-hand corner. I did this while watching TV last night. I stitch in hand....the frame above is all for show.
Jean usually changes the colors. If you've been to her shop you can see she has a great eye! She came up with the silk palette above. I told her to send her entire kit my way.
I've discovered that this blog is going to be 2 years old next month. I can't believe it! I'm grateful you have stuck with me along the way!!! Barb and I are thinking of something fun to celebrate.
Until later dear friends!
