I really have to say I was totally overwhelmed by all the comments that came (and keep coming!) in on the Turkish Stockings. I read and replied to each and every one of them that I could either directly via email or through a comment on their blogs. (note to self: look into better commenting program) The real bonus was that I got to visit many, many new blogs and hopefully made de-lurkers out of some of you!
A huge thank you to the whole knitblog community. Thanks to Ashley and Jessica for linking to me - I got quite a few visitors from your sites! We are a great bunch, and I really couldn't do any of my knitting without you. You taught me everything I know!
Now, my only question remains - what to wear with these when I go to the festival next month?
Even though it's Friday the 13th, it seems as the stockings have brought me good luck - I won a contest over at Allison's!! She took a great vacation to San Francisco and had a contest about favorite vacations. From someone who pretty much never wins anything, I was excited! The prize is some Interlacements Toasty Toes - a sock yarn I've never used before. Thanks Allison!
Tucker and I are off to New York this afternoon for an agility trial. It is a pretty special one. Our first trial ever was at this very location one year ago. We've come a long way! Otis and Ravin will have a very special lady to keep them company when I'm gone. Diana, a friend's Rhodesian Ridgeback is staying with us for a few days.
Hubby's socks are coming along. I am through the gusset of the first one and am working my way down the (long) foot. I hope to knit a bunch in the car ride to New York today as well as a bit at the trial.
Have a great weekend and enjoy spring if it's come to you! We are still getting flurries and temps in the low 40's!
