Dreaming of Stitches

I finished the socks.
They look good.
You will have to wait till Isha gets here to model them before you can see them.
They'd better fit.
She has small feet.
They are some rockin' socks if I do say so myself!
Judging from the weather they are having in Washington, she should be very grateful for them!

I got the Stitches West brochure.
Man oh man.
I highlighted all of the classes that I was interested in.
There are a lot of them.

I finally narrowed it down (helped along by the ones that were ALREADY closed!)
and registered online tonight. I tried to go with a bit of a theme, knowing that I have yarn for a Dale of Norway sweater as well as a Philosopher's Wool kit (from last year)and I would really like to start one of those soon. So I mostly went for classes that would help me a bit with one of those projects, plus finishing- cause I love it so much (note the dripping sarcasm here). Well, like I said we'll see what I end up with. Mostly I am looking to improve my technique on the more difficult stuff and am just loking forward to spending a weekend with my knitting! Man, I can't believe that I only found out about this last year. I am SO looking forward to this!

I'll let you know what I ended up getting in to.

I have picked up the husband/alpaca sweater again, but am already feeling the effects of the alpaca so I'm not too sure how long I will be able to work on it. Luckily my husband knows that I love him! I need to get some other project(s) on the needles though. Socks and some gloves for my other daughter. Yep, guess what. I am almost done with last years' Christmas presents.

This year they get cookies.

I'm only knitting 2 or 3 presents this year. I just have waaaay to much Me Knitting to do.
