There has been a lot going on around here, but not a lot to show for it. A little over a week ago, I finished writing up the pattern for Sheila’s sock club so that everyone’s favorite test knitter could start knitting it. I still have some hints and tricks that I want to put in it, but the pattern itself is done, barring any corrections. I have received the winter edition of yarn from Sheila. And? SQUEEEE! But again, I can’t show you that yet.
I finished spinning up the single last night of the first course of Hungry for Handspun‘s Fiber Feast. I would show you, but it really doesn’t look much different than the last time I showed you. I am figuring on chain plying. What I will do with it, after that, I am not sure.
Finally, I am running again in the Komen Maryland Race for the Cure, in Hunt Valley, MD, on October 18. Unfortunately, this year I am not able to offer any prizes, but I did start the ball rolling by selling off some of my stash on eBay. The last buyer paid me this past week, so all of that is done and out the door. I will write up a lessons learned on that later.

Thank you for your support.

I am looking forward to our Winter club selection and what you have designed for us and of course, I will be supporting you in your race.
You made an excellent point about my recently completed socks. I determined that a round for me is about 30″ and now I am thinking about dyeing my own yarn in 30″ color blocks so I get more striping and less blobs of color.
Your name’s really George? I never knew…
can’t wait to see what you do with the first course of the HFH fiber!
good luck with the race!
