No "Trollopes" this week, as we were not sitting in that part of the cafe -- perhaps next time. Sherri, on the far right of the picture, helped me cast on for my first Magic Loop sock last night. I got a whole round completed before it was time to leave. (At this rate, the socks will be ready by next Christmas). She also gave me my very own customized pattern from her Sock Wizard software -- pretty cool!
Tonight I knit a few more rounds on the cuff, but somehow, while watching "Lost", (I should know better than to knit during Lost), I added a stitch somewhere, so I may have to frog everything, or my ribbing will be off. Those darn tiny stitches are hard to see! I may have to get new glasses! It doesn't help that there's little contrast between the muted colors of the yarn and the silvery Addi Turbo needles.
On my way home from B&N last night it started to snow. Just flurries. Nothing sticking. I came inside and probably half an hour later there was about a half-inch on everything. And here's how it looked this morning:
Tomorrow, the gracious Bess is coming to town for the sole purpose of teaching me to spin, (drop spindle -- too soon for an out-and-out wheel lesson!). It's going to be a fun day and I'm pretty psyched, I must say! So I guess I better get to bed and get my beauty (HA!) sleep.
(Hey -- maybe Bess can help me with my sock!)
