  • And I cast on the project for the 4th and final piece for the Mythical Creatures club.  That will go out into the world in November.  
Personal Knitting:  I'll be taking my gradiant/striping socks with me to knit on in my booth.  I generally only work on these during shows, since they are a mindless project, but I'd like to get these finished up.  I've got sock #1 finished and sock #2 knit down to the heel.
