The first something new is something that I hope to repeat in the future. Kate and I went to a Friday Night Knitting Club….yes, just like the book. Well, nearly almost like the book. There were knitters there and it was on a Friday night, but it was not in a knitting shop, and there were no eccentric people there, and there were no kids…so, I guess the only similarity was that there was knitting on a Friday. But it sounded good, right? For those who are interested, there is a new knit/crochet group that is meeting at the Panera near the train station in Wilmette at 6:30 PM on Fridays. Guaranteed good time.
The second new thing was that I started the color work on the socks for Olivia. Kate had given me a little kit of socks that had color work in them so that I could “test the waters” so-to-speak. I’ve done 2 rounds so far and it is going fairly well. My one mistake (BOOBOO, really) is that on the second round I should have knit 3 stitches across with the new color instead of 2. Oh well. The chevron will be a little lopsided and I’m sure that Olivia won’t notice.
Okay, got to get back to doing Hebrew morphological searches..yippee!
