Finally, Fiber Friday
I felt quite a bit better today, so I went up to Crossroads for Eastside Stitchers Fiber Friday.
This will be a quick post of who showed up and what they were working on, because, as usual, I have been knitting/crocheting way too late, and am dead tired.
Skeinherder showed up in time to visit with Tatting Guy. I was late because I was tutoring one of my students. I cannot show her project, but I can show the yarn:
Winterpromise31 has made real progress on her hat. We had a lively discussion about the best way to knit cable/twisted stitches, when there are only 2 stitches being twisted. I showed her the technique I learned from Tour-de-Sock. I think it is the fastest.
Constance came back today I am so glad I got a chance to meet her. She brought a beautiful shawl. Sorry I don't have the name close by and am too tired to hunt for it.
CathieC is chugging away on her Yeti socks.
And I watched Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Season 7. I was listening too Abby of the Knit Knit Cafe the other day. She is watching Buffy, and was talking about Season 7, and how she doesn't like this season as much as the original 5 seasons. It is a much darker story line. I remembered Season 7 fondly, so I started it again yesterday, and have been powering through the whole season while working on Tour de Sock. I have to say, that while it is indeed a more serious overarching story, these shows are some of my favorites. I love Andrew and Anya. And, Spike is featured prominently. Really wonderful writing.
