Sedalia in the Rain!

As a tradition, we always photo the booth - Normally we would have been outside the pavillion with the tent probably bailing water! But instead we were given the chance to be under the pavillion - it stopped the wet feet issue, but was cold and damp and threatening all day - and it affected turnout.

But I did get a chance to see new folks, met two delightful ladies who do an amazing job of dying their own yarns (go check them OUT!, you won't be sorry...

I didn't buy much. Picked up a set of Brittany dpns in size 0 to finish my STR Red Rooster socks - a broken rosewood needle is sadly missing, but now I can work on them - these Clover dpns are very long (8 inches?) and I'm getting splinters in my fingers.

My dilemma on this sock has been the increase holes that appear at regular locations throughout a row of the sock at the ankle. Yes, it's obvious, but I did think I'd help point it out for you...

The dark hole!!
So do I rip an almost complete sock, or let it slide - I'm going to wear it under pants at least!

Sorry the turnout was low and the weather was less than lovely. Some day I want to visit Sedalia.

Your rooster socks are beautiful! I'd run a thread (or yarn) in there and sew up that ol' hole. It's too little to deserve ripping.

Duplicate stitch a few stitches around the hole, too. Sad the weather didn't cooperate!

Unless the holes look deliberate and lacy, hide 'em with duplicate stitch.

Brrr! Cold wet weather is no fun...

I love how your socks are turning out, but depending how how obvious the hole looks when you are wearing them, you could darn them easily.

I really wish I could be there with you!

Sorry the day was blah...but at least you were under the tent. Your set up looks lovely.

The sock is so beautiful. I'm sure you can fix the hole. :)

Like anyone is going to be crawling around checking your feet that closely! Or if they were, the motive wouldn't be to make sure you were Superknitter:) Your socks are beautiful and I think duplicate stitch might be the best answer.

I'm sure I saw you at Sedalia, and didn't realize you were a knit-blogger. I had fun, despite the weather!

I read somewhere that even Lucy Neatby has to "tidy up" her socks now and then. Just duplicate stitch that bad boy gone!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
