Sockapalooza 4

Alison has opened sign ups for sockapalooza 4!

Sarah has joined with me. She will use this blog to post her updates too.

So far she and sock knitting have gotten along about as well as Purl and I did when we first met. Purl was a bitch to be brought to submission. Sarah is determined to bring sock knitting down as well!

We have a wedding to attend on Saturday. Since she will be in town, there will be a baby shower for the groom's sister on Sunday. We're finishing Kaity's cardigan for the wedding and a woven baby blanket for the shower. Kaity didn't need the cardigan for Easter since we were having our beautiful Dogwood Winter. So, as usual, I put finishing it off until what now feels like the last minute. Sarah is being so kind as to knit the sleeves for me.

The shower took me by surprise. I had some yardage of black crochet cotton warp and blue boucle weft on the rigid heddle loom. I finished weaving it off. I need to re warp the loom with about 6 yards by 5 inches cotton warp. I bought a complimentary boucle to weave a border. It will probably be finished late Saturday night. But the mom is someone special to us so it's worth it. I'll post pictures when I'm finished.
