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!!
