December 26: The Last of the Mohitos

Kelly is one happy camper tonight. ItGirl will be sending her a prize for knitting the 1763rd sock, which we slid past while I was knee deep in sheep.

We're at a solid 1777 socks now, on day 121, averaging 14.6 socks a day. Impressive knitting - you clearly held your own while I was away. Good show.

(and YAY, Mommy for finishing your first sock! I'm so proud!!!)


I'm exausted today, after a wonderful-lovely-fun weekend. I can barely move tonight, though the horrifying swelling in my feet that left me nearly completely crippled last night has gone down slightly. And despite the nine years of ballet training that gave me the ability to take it, I'm not even going to post the gross picture of the blister that I got between two toes. You're welcome.

Instead, I'll stick with just a few photos of some of the beauties I met. Tomorrow - the purchases (which were restrained and easy to carry, with one small exception.) Some wool, a pound of linen, a gorgeous spindle, and one tiny skein of yarn. I managed to stay right at my budget if you don't count the new-to-me spinning wheel. More on that later.

I had a wonderful time with Erica, who's a total peach, and with my other friends that I see entirely too rarely. A remarkably few drinks were consumed (yes, mohitos) and a remarkably high amount of laughter and foolish behavior was enacted. It's never enough time with them, though, so I'm sitting here like a three-year-old the day after Christmas, wishing I could be back with those special women again.

(I love this photo: When Angora Attacks)

It's so nice to be remindedthat it's all about the sheep (and goats).

Be better soon.

Amie, I truly enjoyed my time with you and the other women. I hope I can visit more often. Thank you for being a wonderful hostess, helping me with my spinning and helping me find my new wheel. Talk to you soon.

Did you bring a sheep home for the kids to play with?

Is a single sheep a ship?

Glad to know you had a good time at MSWF! Can we see the wheel??

Btw, add one more sock on the counter from me!

Just finished a pair of baby socks--so tiny, but I guess they should count!
