I leave tomorrow for a Knitting Retreat with the Knitting Fairy and 10 other knitting friends. I can hardly wait. We'll learn how to make a sweater, go shopping, drink worm buckets, eat delicious food....not clean or cook or possibly answer the phone :-)

I'll be back Sunday!

A fellow Rotarian who is a "treasure hunter" (read: Antique Dealer) found this spinning wheel and knowing my obsession with all things fiber gave me first dibs on it. So, she is bringing it in and I am going to look at it. It's "smaller" than an average wheel, solid oak and supposedly it works. DH doesn't know I am about to make a larger purchase nor that I am interested in spinning....but if it's in good condition I am going to give it a whirl (pun intended, of course).

Wicked Sock #1 is complete. It's for Hubby. I used Accidental Knitter superwash sock yarn in Wicked. I used a basic sock pattern with #2 circs so it's going really quickly. I can't wait to see him wear the pair of socks :-)

I am FINALLY on Ravelry, it's a great addition to my knitting can find me as the KnittingAunt

On the knitting front I am working on the Wicked Socks, finishing my Custom T-shirt Sweater and have begun the Knitting Fairy's Lace Scarf Class at Yarn and Stitches.....what an awesome class BTW.

Time to close up, head home and knit.
