One year at Stitches irisheyesLynn bought enough Lorna's Laces Christmas Sock Yarn to make her two daughters and herself pairs of socks to wear Christmas morning. I was very impressed. This year at Stitches, Al and I saw the Lorna's Laces and I just couldn't justify it.
IrisheyesLynn gave me these two skeins for my birthday yesterday! Thank you thank you Lynn. I always wanted to have a pair of holiday handknit socks to wear to work from Thanksgiving to New years. Now I will have them!
Thinking of bundling up for Christmas is a comfort today. I know most of you are hot and sticky. Days like these I want to cut my hair supersuper short. My knit work friends came and sat on my horridly hot porch and knitted with me last night.
Joan and IrisheyesLynn are both 100% Irish. At one point I felt they were going to need IV fluids if the party went on any longer. I think there was some sort of cooling factor in my chocolate birthday cake. We all seemed a bit refreshed after a slice.
Have I ever mentioned how much I adore Autumn in Chicago? It goes faster than summer....
