You may have noticed that there’s a new button in my blog sidebar — for Knitting Meetup. Check it out! There’s going to be a meetup in the DC area on November 20. I’d really like to go to this. Right now there are three venues being voted on for the meetup. Two are in DC proper and one is in Alexandria, VA. I voted for Alexandria. While I work in Washington, I’d rather the meetup was in Northern Virginia because (a) it starts at 8:00pm, and (b) I get up at 4:15am on weekdays.
So the bottom line is, if the Alexandria venue wins, I’ll go. Otherwise I’ll have to skip it.
Any other Northern Virginia knitters out there looking for a knitting posse? Register with the Meetup site and vote vote vote! I’d love to have a local Stitch ‘n Bitch group to hang out with. There are some in this area but are in very inconvenient locations for me.
Ooh! Ooh! I got yarn in the mail yesterday! Yep, my sock yarn from Wool Needlework Discounter. What nice people to deal with! They sent samples and some patterns for a vest, a hat, scarves, and a holiday ornament along with my order. Fun!
And speaking of socks . . .
Here is my Regia Stretch sock in progress. The color on this photo is a little truer than yesterday’s photo.
And last but not least . . .
I swatched for Fulmar. Here is my swatch in progress. I got the stitch and row gauge using size 3mm needles (the size called for). I’m going to make the smallest size of Fulmar and I’m using 5-ply guernsey wool.
Oh! I almost forgot!
A photo of Izzy. Of course.
