Knit 1, Drink 2 and all the goings on

I always take my camera to k1d2, but I usually forget to take pictures. Such was the case again Saturday night. I guess it's just that we have such a great time that I totally forget about the camera in my bag. We had a good size group this weekend and even some new peeps. I finished another pinch hat while we were there and worked some on my Jesse's Hat, which is a PITA pattern that I now have a mental block against even though I am past the icky part and on to just ribbing. I should just finish it and get it off the needles. I'd feel so much better if I did. But instead of doing so, yesterday I cast on and began a semi-felted cloche pattern called Vintage Girl Cloche. This one might be staying with me. It depends on how it comes out. It's a super easy pattern, so maybe I will just have to make more than one.

I spent quite a bit of time Saturday making new stitch markers. Over the last couple of weeks I had mostly been making my medium size sets (fits up to size 15 needles) so this weekend I concentrated on smalls. The smalls fit up to a 10.5 needles, so they aren't super tiny. I'll get pictures of those up eventually. I also got a lovely and generous swap package from the Flat Rate Box swap on Ravelry, which I will post about as soon as I take the pictures off my camera. My partner definitely spoiled me there.

Well, the weekend is gone now and I have to put the knitting down and get ready for work. That is always the hardest thing about monday morning, knowing I can't knit until after 5. Bleh. But having a job supports my crazy habit, so I guess its a good thing.

I am super excited about all of the things coming up this fall. Its going to be a really busy time, but it should also be a lot of fun. If you haven't heard about the Gatsby Picnic October 3rd here in Tulsa, look it up because it sounds like it will be really interesting. And then there will be the fair, always a fun time for knitters, and Indie Emporium and way down towards December there is Fiber Extravaganza in Mt Magazine, Arkansas. Maybe there will even be some small shows scattered about, just stay tuned!
