This past weekend, I went with my friends Mary and Tina to Sea Isle, NJ. Tina has a vacation home there. We have been friends since the age of 10 and it is easy to pick right up whenever we get together. We had a great time – gabbing, knitting and spinning. I brought my wheel with me – Mary is a knitter who now wants a spinning wheel and she in turn taught Tina to knit — so the weekend netted two converts for the flock! While there, these babies came off the needles:
and were immediately pressed into service for a walk on the boardwalk! If you remember, I had run out of yarn and ended up finishing with Koigu. I think I picked a good color match. The Koigu is a bit thinner than the StR, but all in all a good yarn to use for this emergency.
Mary also finished up a sock or two this weekend and a big, big shout out to FA in PA who has been working hard on her second pair of socks!! I treated each of them to a skank of Trekking as way of welcome to the addiction of sock knitting. Let’s hear it for the ladies!
further proof of diligent knitting …..

and now I must trot along —- the phone won’t stop ringing!
