Blah.

Blah is how I have been feeling for the past several days. I'm not getting a whole lot of knitting done as you can see:

look at that terrible laddering

I should say that the photo is a little old though - since it was taken, I have knitted the heel flap and turned the heel. I did have a little pick-me-up on Tuesday, though. Lori and SJ and I made a visit to Knit One:

Knit One makes everyone happy

I have to say that even after checking out the yarn stores in the big city, none of them compare to Knit One. That's an owner and a store where they just get it. They are so helpful, and so welcoming all the time, without any exception (by the way, hope your chicken was okay, Sandy). And now, they even have a frequent yarn buyer's card! After knitting, we tried to go for Indian, but discovered that the Indian place was now a Thai place, so we had that instead. Thanks again, girls, for a great evening.

At Knit One, I got a skein of Claudia's Handpainted fingering weight yarn in Ingrid's Blues:

pretty

Unfortunately, they only had one skein of this colorway, but I could not resist it. It'll just be a pair of baby socks or something. I also bought something that I have wanted for a very long time:

sheepmeasure!

When I was a kid, I used to love to play with my mom's retractable measuring tape. I always thought it was so neat, but this one is even better because it's a sheep (obviously). Now, I don't have to worry about my tape unraveling onto the dirty floor of the bus as I am trying to measure my progress.

This last photo is for Jenn:

trekking xxl

This is some Trekking XXL that I ordered from theknitter.com a month or so ago. That's color 108 on top and 110 on the bottom. Luckily, one of the things that I registered for when we got married was a baker's scale that measures in grams, which will make dividing the skeins pretty easy, I hope!

Due to a bunch of stuff going on at work and in general, I will probably be pretty scarce around these parts in the next several weeks, but I will update as I can. Hope that everyone is in better spirits than me and that all of your projects are going great!

Knit One looks like a fabulous place. What is it about sitting and knitting with friends that makes us so happy.

Those Trekking colors are great, now if the shop I visited over the weekend would have had those colors, I would have succombed.

I love Knit One, and absolutely love the fact that it's less than a mile from my house :) I have to resist on a daily basis.
