I went to my first first Tuesday Night Stitch 'n' Bitch yesterday, and I had a lovely time. Jane, Leah, and Kay were lovely and very welcoming. (I'm sure the bribe--I mean, the bottle of wine--I brought had nothing to do with that.) Jane spent the whole time spinning on a drop spindle, making the teeniest little thread of yarn--it was so cool! She made yards and yards and yards of the stuff! Leah was knitting about a thousand stitches a minute on a huge, floor-length coat she had been commissioned to make, and Kay worked on a sock that was much cooler than either of my socks.
And I... I worked on the Practice Sock, which has now become Finished Sock #2. Ta-da!
Ooh, it's all stripey!
And here is my first pair of socks.
They do so match. Shut up.
Also, there is no yarn on my coffee table.
