Ahhh... pictures

I just came across some photos of my knitting groups first (Portland Knit Shops, Mabel's won hands down as the best knit shop and sip spot) and second (Sylvan Skies Alpaca Farm) field trips and thought I would share.

Okay, so I have been busy with Oregon Country Fair work and visiting family... I did have a chance to knit part of my cabled alpaca scarf that I have tried to knit 3 times... I keep tearing it out because of little mistakes. I swear I will finish it now (and post pictures).

I don't know how I got here but found this article.

So, for clarification:
Degree in CS, been working on websites and programming for 10+ years, spend a lot of money on this "hobby" and darn it, I vote! Voting has nothing to do with this conversation but had to add it. I also added my name to the Ravelry list but:

# I am #20091 on the list.
# 13402 people are ahead of me in line.
# 6 people are behind me in line.
# 32% of the list has been invited so far

Wow, social networking at its finest.

Go knitters.

I just purchased a skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk and it looks beautiful. I am looking to buy a copy of No Sheep For You by Amy Singer so I can try my hand at a Tuscan lace scarf/shawl. Amy will be in my neck of the woods on July 26 and will be teaching a class on this exact project. I hope to go but with work I might not make it to Portland in time...
