So I know I have been less than posty this last week, The reason behind this is that I am knitting a mystery project. The blob of blue above. Last week, I did not get to work on the socks till Friday night while I waited for Stephanie Pearl-McPhee speak at Powell‘s bookstore in PDX.
I had this event on my calendar for over 2 months. I was planning it and asked my friend who just learn to knit to join me. Things were going without a hitch. Churchable would stay with the doggies while we laughed about yarn. Fast forward to Friday, my friend called to say that Stephanie was on TV. We flipped it on and ate breakfast in front of the TV. When they announced that Stephanie was speaking tonight at Powell’s, churchable looks at me and states “Do you want to go?” Ummmmmm…….. “Yeah, we are leaving at 4.” “Oh cool”. “So do you want to come?” “Yeah I think that Stephanie is funny and I would like to hear her talk.”
Let’s just say I was amazed that my hubby would join us. My poor friend has a husband in the camp of extreme CHOKE (Cultural Humiliation Of Knitters Everywhere), but that caused her to laugh even harder because she was going through it. Let’s just say that she knits rather fast for a beginner but her projects take a while because she can’t knit or crochet when her hubby is home. Poor girl.
The sock? you ask. Yes I have finished a pair of socks in less than a month. Hmmm … I think this is a Blue Moon conspiracy to have me only knit socks with their yarn. Why knit with anything else if Blue Moon is the fastest.
