Pretty much a whole day spent knitting

Remember this sock? This is the sock I knit while learning to knit with 2 circs. Well, yesterday I had the day off and I pretty much spent the entire day knitting. (with a few breaks to throw another load of laundry in) I did the cuff, leg, and heel flap, then called it quits for the day when I got to the heel turn. I used those gorgeous Harmony wood circs from KnitPicks.
Oh, and speaking of KnitPicks...I got an email from them (I really shouldn't read their emails, it always costs me money! lol) This email was about sock samplers, and this is the one I ordered. I had a hard time choosing, but this is a good one to start with. I already have tons of bright sock yarns, and Meadows has some really gorgeous deeper tones.
Sheesh, I'm starting to sound like an advertisement, aren't I? ;) Just wait....I'm going to the Michigan Fiber Festival in less than 2 weeks. Can't wait to show you the goodies I'll pick up there. I'm also going to sign up for a class on drop spindles ath the Fiber Expo in October. I'm really looking forward to that class! I wish I could take a class at the Fiber Festival, but since it is a weekend that hubby and I have planned together, I can't expect him to just sit it out. That's alright...there's always next year. ;)
