Counting Down To Charlotte!
(I think that cheetah one is just the cat's pajamas!)
And Dianne managed to get our airfare to Sock Summit booked! We've been emailing back and forth like a couple of middle-school gals, we're so excited...Ah, adventure!
Have I mentioned that the farthest WEST I've ever travelled is to Rochester MN? (Yes, Mayo - which was quite the adventure!)
Oh...and our flight out to Portland? Takes us into Salt Lake City! We'll be flying over you, Margene, and waving! It will be relatively late in the evening and we'll only be in the airport a short 30 minutes or so as we run to the connecting flight! But we'll WAVE!!!!
Now all we need is to see what the availability and scheduling of classes and events will be - get ourselves registered - and then of course, the knitting of items to WEAR there!!! And deciding what to take to knit upon...!
Ok, ok...I have a cat show to do first.
I decided on a stitch pattern for my sis-in-law's avocado silk socks:
Of course, they're Wendy's Cabletini Socks!
I had to make a modification or two as my sis-in-law's foot is a bit more narrow - there are only 4 cable repeats across the top of the foot, and I'll knit my regular heel on them, since that fits my sis-in-law's foot well.
But I'm enjoying this pattern (it's really only 4 short pattern rows to remember and repeat!)...(And did you see? It's only 15 more days till Wendy's book is released - but you can pre-order it now!! (I did, and I can't wait to get it!)
Ok...the cat sitter has been here and learned her duties...even The Meezer deigned to make an appearance, so the sitter must be good...
I've got to get the oil changed - can you imagine that Jiffy Lube didn't have the proper oil filter for a Subaru Forester tonight? There was no one anywhere around, it was a glorious spring evening, the two guys were sitting outside, smoking...and sadly stated that the guy who does their ordering was falling down on the job, I was the second Subaru to come in on this late afternoon and they just didn't have the filters to do the job.
Hmmm...something funny about that picture, huh?
