The World Is Shrinking
Last night Sarah and I went to Yarn Haven again for S n' B, a regular Tuesday night occurrence there. I had the great pleasure of finally meeting Becky! She's sweet and softspoken, a pediatrician outside of the knitblog world. Becky brought her Bayerische sock to work on, which just blew me away. Oh my, did we ever laugh last night! There was another bonus to the evening; I won the door prize! Last night's goodie bag contained a skein of Plymouth Encore chunky, a pattern for a hat and scarf and a retractable tape measure. While there I treated myself to EZ's The Opinionated Knitter since it was the last one on the shelf!
I blame last night's bout of insomnia on Becky though. She showed me the fugliest pants in the world in an otherwise beautiful knitting book. Mitered squares and 17 skeins of Koigu. Check these out! Warning... really, really, bizarre! Koigu pants Seriously, people. If I had the opportunity to splurge on 17 skeins of Koigu, I surely wouldn't be knitting pants! I'm just sayin'.
Last night's insomnia had some benefits, though. Loopy benefits. Yes, I was awake for the latest Loopy Ewe sneak-up. Now there's a surprise. (NOT!) After that, I spent some time googling the Koigu pants to see if I could find anyone who had actually made them. Lots of opinions, no actual finished pants.
The shrinking world thing? Through blogging I have met three other knitters right here in my own T-Town. They aren't imaginary friends!
