First of all, Norma was really cute -- she very proudly showed her first ever stash yarn, and it all fit in one nice little bag. She was in Virginia Beach last week and made her first ever foray into a local yarn shop, and picked up some Lorna's Laces and a Yarn Requirements card, which she brought for show-and-tell Tuesday night. She also brought a knitting friend & co-worker named Jo to join us:
Here's hoping Norma brings Jo back to TNK again!... :-)
Meanwhile, Nancy brought an adorable little purse she's recently finished:
And Sheddy worked on her new Mason-Dixon linen bubble curtain:
But perhaps the most exciting news of the evening, (and you may want to alert the media), was that Sheddy completed her PAIR of flip-flop socks! We knew she could do it! And at least for this pair only, she's not doomed to one-sock-itis.
Ta-da! Aren't they marvelous?
I love those colors and have ordered the exact yarn recommended in that pattern, and it has finally arrived:
Even better, my yarn contest winnings also arrived:
But I digress -- back to Tuesday's knit-night happenings. I was a bad photojournalist and didn't get a picture of Issy, Deb or Renny, but they were all there, knitting on the projects you saw during last week's report. Sherry was there, too, for the first time in awhile, and it was great to see her! She's knitting on the second sock with the Socks That Rock I gave here back in May. And I'm still knitting away on about ten different projects -- I seem to keep adding new WIPs to my list and finishing very few of them. The only new item not yet documented here will remain so until it has been given to its recipient sometime in the near future. But a hint -- it will match and can be worn with the items I bought in the shop across the street from the Yarn Lounge that Thursday night when you, Issy and I were there. Think about it....
Alas, I must end this report on a sad note, for I will miss TNK for the next three Tuesdays, as I'll be up in Maryland again for work. Since you'll be back from the beach by then, Jane, I expect a full report from you on your blog! And unless we do something fun over an upcoming weekend, I won't see you again until Tuesday, August 22nd! That seems too far away! (*Sob!*)
Until then, y'all have fun now, ya hear?!
