There's a new button in the side bar. I came across a link to the German Socken Kreativ Liste on someone's blog, and had to sign up right away. There are some awesome sock patterns on this group! It seems like every Fall when I gear up for heavy duty knitting weather, I sign up for one or two German knitting groups, determined to brush up on my language skills. This time, I actually introduced myself, in German. We'll see if they laugh me out of the group.
I've been on a business trip this week, and the knitting project du jour is the My So Called Scarf for the ISE. I'm almost done with the first skein, which is about a third of the way complete. They are getting their first snow of the season up in the mountains of Colorado. The local news showed kids at the Breckenridge ski resort making a snowman. Adorable.
I'm not sure if I will be making it to OFFF this year. I would really like to go, but I haven't seen my family all week and there may need to be some compromise. We'll see.
The good news is that I did have the opportunity to visit a LYS, Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins. I got a few goodies for myself and a sheep tic-tac-toe set for the kids. Cute! Photos next week, I think.
