Happy Wednesday! Unfortunately, we didn't make it to Vegas due to my husband getting sick. Hopefully the curse that has fallen upon my house will go away soon! I'm so sad to have missed two huge events (Vogue Knitting and Las Vegas/hockey game) the past few weekends. At least I'm not sick (knock on wood) for the big Vista FIber Fiesta this weekend. I promise that I'll be more active with the blog as soon as the craziness of the Fiber Fiesta (and restocking) is over!
Speaking of that, I'm so so excited. I have 116 skeins of Candy Skein yarn ready to go currently, as well as small 4 yard samples of Delicious fingering for people to take with them! I can't wait for the show to start. Right now, I'm just trying to make sure I have all my ducks in a row before Friday, when we set up the booth and Saturday when the festivities start! I also have tons and tons of amazing knitted samples that my knitting friends made in Candy Skein yarn. I can't believe I'm so lucky that they are letting me borrow them for this weekend to show off! I couldn't ask for better friends. :)
For this WIPW, I won't have the hat to share, because I FINISHED IT!!!!!! I'm actually wearing it RIGHT now, because San Diego decided that it was Fall all of the sudden. In the past 24 hours, we've dropped about 20 degrees and it's raining. I LOVE this weather, but am happy to report it will warm up a little for the Fiber Fiesta. Anyway, I'll share the hat on Friday, and those of you coming to the Fiber Fiesta will see it this weekend!
Since I'm plugging along on all of my work (I honestly can't believe I've dyed, caked, re-skeined and tagged over 116 skeins of yarn counting the ones I've sold recently in the past month), I've had a few minutes to actually....knit. I know, shocking right? It's great to be able to pick the needles back up! Since my husband is sick, I figured the least I could do is finish his socks. I was also depressed that we were home this weekend, instead of Vegas, so I worked on them to cheer me up. In just an evening of knitting on Sunday, I got the heel flap, heel turn, and gusset done, and started on the foot. I worked on the foot during knitting group last night and don't have too much more to go before the toe decrease! I can't believe it! For those who don't remember, this is Knit Picks Imagination in Frog Prince. :)
I also wanted to get these off my back (and my other WIPs) since I'll be making my first sweater/cardigan in the Candy Skein KAL that starts October 15th. Don't forget, we're making the Rhombi at the Candy Skein Addict Ravelry group and I'm giving a $2 a skein discount to those who buy yarn for the KAL. Also, the lovely pattern designer has the Rhombi pattern 15% off until October 15th when you use the code: ninjastockup. She's been great already in the discussion, answering any questions you have with the pattern and figuring out how to get the perfect gauge that works for your size.
That's it for me today! What are you working on?
