Mother's Day

I had a lovely Mother's Day, part of which included enough time to goof around and take photos of my current knitting, as you can see below. I got Hollywood Knits as a gift, and spent a low-key day with Greg and Ellie. We went to the mall to check out 12-inch Powerbooks, to Unwind, a very nice not-really-local yarn store, and out for lunch.

I thought of the perfect traveling knit for our Kansas/Iowa trip. Socks! I will try to make some socks. I picked up skein of some sock yarn and a set of size 3 dpns at Unwind. Now I just need to decide which of the basic sock patterns I've looked at would be a good place to start. Do you have any favorites?

I also plan on making an Airy Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts out of the skein of purple Kidsilk Haze I bought yesterday. I want to work on my larger projects before we go, so I have the maximum amount of sock knitting time available for the trip.

Shelby, i am sort of freaked out that you and I live so close to each other and have not yet met. OK, so I am a hermit and also shy and also nervous. But i really want to meet you! Does that sound weird? and stalker-y? But even if we never meet I feel better knowing a cool knitter lives in my valley, too! Valley girls unite!!! ;)

Hey, I'm shy and hermitish, too! It would be great to meet sometime.
