Okay, it's only really one sock. I kitchnered (is that a word?) the toe on Wednesday night while watching Lost on tv. The other sock is on the needles and I'm past the ribbing. I am using US 1 double points. I am a very loose knitter. Just to remind you, this is the Jaywalker pattern http://www.magknits.com/Sept05/patterns/jaywalker.htm
On Monday and Wednesday nights, I went out to knit in public. Monday was the Knitorious Chicks with Sticks (Syracuse, NY). http://groups.msn.com/KnitoriousSyracuseChicksWithSticks Very cool group of ladies with beautiful yarns and projects. We met at the local Wegmans (cool grocery store/candy store/coffee bar/oh they have knitting magazines!!!)
Wednesday night was the new Meetup.com knitting group (Syracuse, NY). A group of 8 showed up for the first gathering at a local Panera. Many different levels of experience and again, beautiful yarns and projects. The group is hoping to meet once a month.
It's been a lot of fun. Knitting can be a little solitary and it helps to get out with people who share your obession. As I said to someone at the guild meeting on last weekend, we want you to join the cult......lol
