It's In The Bag

Robin and Adrienne, thanks for the validation. I placed the order yesterday and I cannot wait to get my Hot Red Satchel. Kudos to Jordana Paige by the way, she is moving into her new business premises. She has reached that professional level where working at home is not keeping up with the pace of her success. I am looking forward to more luxury knitting products from her.

I cast on for the Ebony Elite Sock Knit Along last night. I am trying a new (to me) Knit Picks Sock yarn, the Simple Stripes superwash yarn. I believe this line of yarns have been discontinued. I really like the colors and the striping effect, but the feel is coarser than the Memories sock yarn. I guess I could have counted a pair of socks I already have on my needles for the KAL but that kind of felt like cheating. We started June 11th and I kind of wanted to kick it off with the other knitters. But then I did not get the sock cast on until last night. I had just cast on my Monkey socks on Sunday and could not put them down. Oh dear, it's an illness :} Hopefully I will be able to pick up the camera this weekend and take some WIP shots. I have almost completed the second STR 24 Karat sock.

It was 113 degrees in the car in the shade here yesterday so needless to say I won't be knitting anything bigger than a sock any time soon. I can work on my afghans at home and let the fabric lay on the chair or bed as I crochet, but my traveling projects are going to have to be small and light!!! Whew 113 y'all, what's up with that??
