My first blog date

I'm so glad it's the weekend. So far it's been a great one. This morning I met my first fellow knit-blogger, Kim of Gib Knits. She and her son Joey met me for coffee at our local Moxie Java. How fun. It was HER birthday and she brought ME a present. How sweet is that? I got some yummy apple mints and pretty stitch markers that she made. Thank you, Kim. And thanks to Joey for putting up with all our knitting/yarn/spinning talk.

After getting home, I finished up the Branching Out scarf. I still need to weave in the ends and block it, but the knitting is done. It was a fun pattern, once I got into it. It took me a few pattern repeats to finally get into the flow, but once I did, everything went along nicely. Here you go--the not-quite-finished product.


I also started a new pair of socks. Now I'm back to dpns. These are the Chevron socks from Sensational Knitted Socks. The yarn is in my (and many others') beloved Socks that Rock yarn. Scottish Highland colorway. It's gorgeous!! We went to a friends for dinner, then it's back home to knit some more. It's been pretty much the perfect day. If only I could spend every day like this...

Hello Jocele! It was so much fun meeting you and gabbing over coffee and Joey's embarassment. :)

I've been obsessing over your Socks that Rock yarn since feeling it. Oohh, that stuff is so nice!

Cleo is having a dye class on June 10th, and I picked up two beautiful blue Gaywool colors for you. I went kind of crazy with the Merino top that Cleo has---that stuff is pure heaven.
