Did anyone who went to Sock Summit 2009 go to the Sock Museum? Did you see my Rivendell socks? Did they look like they were having a good time? I thought it was pretty cool to find my Rivendells amongst the photos The Oregonian took of the event (the slideshow is halfway through the article).
I’m liking the Monkey socks I’m knitting for my sister. The pattern was super easy to memorize, and the colors are working really well with the simple lace. It’s also knitting up very quickly. The Laminaria shawl is slightly on-hold, meaning I just haven’t felt up to knitting it while watching TV the last few nights.
My 30 days of exercise project is almost over — tomorrow is day 30! The Monterey Wool Auction is on Sunday and I’m looking forward to see what fleeces are there this year. I think I will probably be continuing the exercise going forward. I have finally gotten to a point that while I still feel hot and sweaty afterwards, I also feel refreshed. And let me tell you, the biggest bonus is my clothes are fitting looser.
