There is so much going on inÃ‚Â the blogsphere.
Sock Wars: Ã‚Â I have my target, I have my weapon and I know who is hunting me.Ã‚Â I have some built in lag time (time in the mail)Ã‚Â as my assasin is in the UK, but my target is in Australia, so she hasÃ‚Â some lag time too.Ã‚Â I have finished the first sock without too much trouble, I only had to rip the heel and partial gusset a few times.Ã‚Â I know, I need to learn to read.Ã‚Â Can you believe some people have already put their socks in the mail, theÃ‚Â pattern was released onÃ‚Â Friday.Ã‚Â There has been one reported kill, those socks were handed off in person yesterday.Ã‚Â
Soctoberfest is just around the corner.Ã‚Â I am so excited about this one, it was so much fun last year.Ã‚Â I have several pairs of socks I need to knit up for the Holiday Knitting ’06 and will try to complete them in October.
For me these two go together.Ã‚Â Dulaan Project 2007 has been officially kicked off and I will be doing much EZ knittingÃ‚Â for Dulaan.Ã‚Â I was lucky(?)Ã‚Â enough to be able to attend the Yarn Giveaway at Ryan’s and I have plenty of super bulky yarn to knit into very warm Tomten Jackets and hats.Ã‚Â I was impressed with the fact that the hostesses of Zimmermania! actually contacted Meg Swansen for permisson to hold the KAL, how classy is that.
I received three EZ books for my b’day last week, very cool!Ã‚Â I am all set for Zimmermania! now.
On the knitting front, Quinn has been set aside while I finish the Socks of Doom for Sock Wars. I am almost done with Quinn, just have a couple of rows left on the body, then on to the 16′ of 2 stitch i-cord. Sixteen feet!
