I saw the Yarn Harlot at the St. Louis county library last night. She's hilarious. The library was pretty shocked at how many people showed up...we were spilling into the book aisles.

Besides the socks for my sister, I am also working on a shawl. I had about six skeins of Microspun left over from an earlier knitting incarnation. I've become a total snob since I bought it, but it is soft. The only real problem is that the yarn splits so much. In any event, I am using a Trinity stitch and will see if I have enough to make it wearable.

So it's been awhile. I could say that I've been busy, but the reality is that I've been lazy, and I don't actually think anyone is reading this, so I suspect no one has noticed.

In any event, I am now on my third pair of socks. The first two are mine, but these are for my sister Bonnie. I am just using a simple pattern with and inch and a half of ribbing and then stockinette stitch. Next pair I will try something a bit more exciting.

I also knit a vest for my mother and a little dress for my niece. The vest was an Olympics project and the dress is Project Spectrum April. I think it's pretty cute.
