So behind!

So much has been going on lately - did my first round of yarn dyeing with Kool Aid on Saturday - I would have taken pictures but I found out my camera is broken :( A call home luckily tracked down the receipt so I can get it repaired under warranty (whew) I'm very pleased with how it all turned out though, will have to do it again soon.

Started up my friend Amy's socks using a pattern from Kim's blog - this will be my first pair of toe-up socks, so we'll see how it goes :)

Started another OSW, reorganized all my yarn into project bins (in the hopes I would be able to find things faster. In reality, I just wanted to see how much yarn I could spread on my floor. Marie the cat about died and went to heaven)

Most fun (so far), I went to San Diego with Teresa to go to the Yarn Harlot's book signing. So much fun - Teresa makes a good road trip partner and we've already started plotting an "around LA" yarn crawl. This was only the second time I'd been back to SD since Nate and I broke up, which made it a little weird. But having travelled to SD so much came in handy when tracking down food afterwards :) The Grove was a neat place - mixing of books, jewelry, and yarn (add shoes and beverages and I am moving in) Being surrounded by so many other knitters is always fun too :)

Sigh - back to work, then to group meeting. Fun stuff this research bit.

I am totally getting some color your own yarn with my next KnitPicks order - maybe we can have a little Kool Aid dyeing party! Thanks for the company and navigation assistance. See you tonight, perhaps?
