Stich n bitch night!

Another great Tuesday night at the Albuquerque stitch and bitch! It wasn't nearly as crowded as last time I was there - but I had fun non-the-less. And this time - I think I remember everyone's name. There was me, Beth, Kelly, Cari, Molly, Morgan and Bentley

I worked on my Trekking XXL sock and I am loving how the colors are working out. It is not at all what I expected - but I am really loving it. My hubby chose this yarn a while back and I wasn't really looking forward to making him socks out of it - but I must admit that I was wrong about this yarn. It is really cool :)

I was going to work on my lace some more - but just like the sit and knit in Maryland - I don't think I would have been able to remember what I did or where I left off. Here is a close up of one of my leaves - I love how this pattern is coming out!

I am using Gems Pearl a fingering weight yarn - newly purchased from Cloverhill yarn shop. My new favorite yarn shop!!! It will definitely be a dangerous place. I also picked up some Claudia's hand painted yarn in a varigated wine color and some lace weight Cherry Tree Hill yarn in gorgeous fall leaves colors.

This week - the New Mexico state fair is going on - and at Stitch and Bitch someone mentioned that there was a stabbing on the first day!! I was planning on going to the fair - but I have to rethink my options now :( Who knew there were gangs hanging out at the state fair!!

The sock yarn is beautiful - I can't wait to see the completed socks.

I love the color on the socks. I haven't seen a pair of ugly Trekking XXL socks yet. It's definately a yarn that looks much better on the foot than in the ball.

I'd go to the fair. With the thousands and thousands of people attending you have to figure that something's going to happen.

Good for you for finding a great knitting group while you're away from home. That must make it a lot easier to be away from your husband and sweet dog! Please send some of that sunshine and warmth to the east coast. :)

I'm so bummed I didn't get to go this week. We had a crazy day and were just too tired to go out again. Isn't it funny how much that group size fluctuates?
