It Looks Like I Will Not Be Going to MDS&W Naked
Picovoli is 98% done! I will have something to wear tomorrow. Last night I finished knitting the body of it and got the hem stitched down so I was able to finally try it on and it does fit. All I have to do today is knit the hems onto the sleeves and stitch them down, do some weaving in of ends and give the whole thing a big steamy blocking with the iron and I'll be ready to go! They've taken the rain out of the forecast and it looks like it will be a bit warmer than they originally thought, so Picovoli might not have to spend the whole day under a jacket. If you see me wearing this and carrying the lamb bag, please say hi!
Where will I be tomorrow? What kind of things am I looking for? I'll tell you. I will be shopping for sock yarn (naturally) from Tess Designer Yarns, Shelridge Farms, Cherry Tree Hill and The Fold - I've got to check out Socks That Rock. I plan on getting a fleece. I have no idea what kind, but hopefully one will speak to me. I'll be buying spinning fiber from Spinner's Hill, Kid Hollow Farm, and anywhere else that jumps out at me. Those of you that are Spindler's, I will be at the meet up at the Journey Wheel booth too. I'd love to meet any of you who are going tomorrow. For all of you that can't go, try to have a good weekend anyway - I'll be back Monday with all the goodies.
UPDATE: The top is finished and ready to go, but MDS&W blogging has been pre-empted - I just got my goodies from my Secret Sockapaloooza Pal and WOWIE! These totally get Monday all to themselves!
UPDATE II: Regina, I tried to email you, but the email address you gave in your letter is bouncing back at me - as you can see from the first Update, the package arrived safely and I'm thrilled.
