+ 100 exp! Level up! April 7, 2009

I reknit the entire gusset on the swap socks today, and turned one heel (I’ll have the other turned by bedtime). I feel like I should earn some kind of award. Then again, it’s my own stupid fault that I had to rip and reknit anyway, so maybe I deserve nothing.

In any case, I took a progress shot (pre-heel-turn) when I was at my mom’s place today, with her camera.

She also gave us our wedding present- a queen sized quilt. It is gorgeous. I wish I had a photo. She took one, but I didn’t think to get it from her. I’ll have to do that eventually. I love that quilt! If you haven’t figured it out already, I come by my crafty leanings very honestly. In fact, my mom, sister, cousin, aunts, and grandma are all getting together later this month for a craft weekend in northern WI. I’m really excited- especially since the location has hiking trails, too. I’m sure I’ll talk more about that as it gets closer.

    the socks look gorgeous! someday, when I’ve figured out how to reliably knit socks on dpns, I’ll have to try the technique you’re using. 🙂

    I don’t know where my crafty leanings come from – my mom was very artistic in drawing and writing, but my creativity comes out in knitting and cross-stitch and such things. The craft weekend sounds wonderful!! 🙂

    I’m thinking I’d like to give myself the gift of a knitting retreat weekend – choose someplace out of the way but a reasonable travel distance away and hole myself up and knit and go for walks and things. We’ll see if I manage that. 🙂
