Countdown to Stitches West!

And a Three Sock Update:

Sock One:
Last week I finshed up the 2nd Child's First sock. Hmm, I guess that would make it the Child's Second sock.

Sock Two:
Then I started a pair of socks for my Dad (yet AGAIN). This time it'll be Thuja's in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport. I don't know why but I keep second guessing myself when it comes to making guy sized socks. The sock I made at Christmas was about 2 inches too long and that was after I consulted my oracle of Sensational Knitted Socks, threw the I Ching and cast on and frogged several times.

Sock Three:
Then, worried about not having enough portable projects to carry around at Stitches in case, gourd forbid I stop drooling long enoughto have a down moment, I started a pair of Roza's Socks using the Fyberspates my English SP, Carolyn gave me:

I'm so excited about Stitches and even did my homework. It's for my Fair Isle Knitting class on Saturday. I hope I did it correctly because I have no idea what this is supposed to be. It involved casting on 90 stitches, knitting, placing stitch markers, binding off, stitch holders...

Ok..off to wax my credit card..

I am so jealous you get to go to Stitches West! My friends and I went to Stitches East last November in Baltimore and had a blast!

All your socks are looking great. I'm dying to knit two of those patterns - and the third I already knit and loved. Great taste in socks. Have a wonderful time at Stitches. Can't wait to hear all about your class.
