Use your imagination..

It's tragic that the digital camera has bitten the dust. But, in a positive, silver-lining moment, I realize I have about 3 disposable cameras that are half finished, and a bunch of mystery film. Does anyone else have that problem where you have rolls of film that have been used, but you have no idea what's on it? So, I'm going to take some sock pictures with the ends of my disposable cameras and find one of those mail in places that uploads them to the internet to you. That will be my tragic version of the digital camera until I save up for one.

I'm knitting on some Monkey socks which are gorgeous. I love that pattern in a busy varigated yarn and the one I picked fits the bill perfectly. It's Yarn Love and the fabric it's producing is so soft and gorgeous. I still have Branching Out on the needles. When I knit it, my nose itches and my throat tickles. Possible mohair allergy? It's not bad enough to stop me from knitting and wearing it though. It's purple and green and glossy. So me..I can endure a bit of a sniffle.

My Babe wheel arrived! She needs decoration. I think I'll be going to the local hippy store to see if they have a triskele sticker or two for her treadles. I've been working on getting my pedaling smooth. Hopefully this weekend I'll try again at running some fiber through her.

The local yarn store, Yarn Mart, now carries Shi Bui Knits! I fell pray to a gorgeous navy blue semi-solid and took two skeins of it home. Sock yarn, of course. I also had a swap from Ravelry this week and received the crochet hook I needed to cast on for my Ogee Lace skirt. I've had the tape yarn since the Arkansas Knit and Spin meetup, but lacked the hook. Maybe I'll have it done by the Jonesboro meetup. Here's hoping!

What are you up to?
