Socks a plenty

I went to sit and knit last night and started a new sock. I'm using a gorgeous shade of Koigu and making the Tropicana pattern from knitty.com

I wasn't alone in my socky pursuits - it seemed like everyone was making socks last night!

Here's a sampling of our goods...



It was a good showing - we had some new knitters and a cuty pie little knitter making her first knitted object.


There was spinning a plenty too - with Sara and Margaret breaking out the spindles.
Here's Sara



And here's part of Margaret :)




It was a great evening - live music was playing from the Lakefront and we enjoyed each other's company.

I was almost talked into going to the midnight showing of Pirates of the Carribean - but alas - I didn't go - I needed my beauty sleep! And now I have something to take my cousin Kelly to this weekend - another movie! That'll be 2 in a week. i think that's a record for me - since I havne't been to a theater to see a movie since the last Harry Potter! I wonder if I could knit in there... hmmm....

If I do decide to ever knit at the movies - I may just have to invest in a pair of these awesome needles that have lights on the tips!!

Thanks for coming to my blog! It is great to see another area knitter ;) It would be great to meet you if you are interested in joining another group - can't have too many! - on Mondays at the Columbia Panera.

Is this group you were meeting with from The Celtic Knot? just curious ;)

Thanks again for writing, and I will add your blog to my list!

I remember when they (La Knitterie) was thinking about desigining these.

I'm going to start Tropicana next too. Thanks for finding it for me.
