Sock Progress

Here and there, I've been able to sneak a few rounds in on recreational socks. I'm past the heel of the SKP2008 Jacobean toe-up sock. My gauge is tighter than listed in the pattern, so I'll have more than the required 5 diamond repeats (I have 5 nearly done already and I'm not past the ankle). It's going to be a lovely sock, and even working in dribs and drabs, I'll be able to finish the pair well before the May 1 deadline.

The other sock is a simple Purl When Ready pattern (picking out the black bits to purl) using Colinette Jitterbug yarn (that I got at Prairie Fibers, in Fargo, ND). I love love love this yarn- and it's going to make gorgeous socks.

Tomorrow, I'll be on the road again- appearing at Athena's Fibers in Sioux Falls, SD, from 1:00-3:00. If you're in the area, drop on by. The local TV station is going to come and do a segment, which shoud be fun.
I'll report on the store and the signing on Sunday (or late Sat, depending on when we get back).
