Where have I been? Busy! Tomorrow is the Annual Meeting and I have been workin’, workin’, workin’ to help put it all together.

Thanks to everyone who made lovely comments about my first pair of socks! All of your comments helped make my little heart swell up with pride : ) I am working (slowly) on my second pair of socks. I have named them the Olive Branch Socks (after the color of the yarn) and they are plain ole stockinette with a ribbed cuff. I tried all sorts of fancy lace patterns but my yarn just wanted to be a plain ole stockinette sock. Funny how that works isn’t it? You have some great yarn that you think will look great in a nice pattern but once you’ve tried and frogged all sorts of patterns you realize that stockinette will best show off the hand-paintedness of the yarn. Anyway, enough babbling, here’s a picture:
SockThey are not coming along as quickly as I would like, probably a direct result of my general busy-ness!

In other knitterly news one of my scarves is being featured in tomorrow’s silent auction (the Mango Moon Silk Scarf) and I am looking forward to next weekend – it’s the Franklin County Fiber Twist. It should be fun! I am looking forward to the yarn (duh), the animals, being in WMA, and taking a lot of pictures. Speaking of pictures…

I have decided to sign on to Photojojo’s (a word I love saying – it reminds me of Mojo Jojo from the Powerpuff Girls) Project 365. I took my first picture today. I think it will be a fun experiment!
