I haven't knit a pair of plain old, self striping socks in a very long time. They are soothing. And fun. When I realized that I may not have enough for 2 pairs out of the one ball, I went up to the sock yarn stash and pretty much found and EXACT match for the toe. Out of leftovers. Some people may doubt the need for the large amount of sock yarn I keep....but look how perfect the toe matches!
Speaking of socks....I've been thinking lately about Sock Camp. I've loved going for the past two years. And at Camp last year, everyone was trying to convince me to go this year upcoming. I'd love to. But realistically, I know it will be mid-April, as it always has been in the past. Baby Fiberfish will be 4 months old at that time. I'm totally fine traveling with a 4 month old. What I'm thinking will NOT be fine is the fact that I would have just returned to work from maternity leave in March. So taking a week off only a month later - doesn't seem like the best career move.
Enter the information running around about the Sock Summit. This super fun thing will be happening August 6 - 9th, and I'm guessing all those that I know and love will be there. I'm assuming it isn't going to be as intimate an affair as Sock Camp, but it has the benefit of being in Portland, OR - where I have family. So not as spendy as sock camp (well, not at travel spendy, I'm thinking I could find other ways to be parted with my money at a knitting event where vendors will be waiting).
Now to convince Aaron.....
