No Pictures

of anything for awhile, because my camera is still in Germany, where it didn't take a single picture. It was a relaxing, leisurely trip, and I'm sure my new German socks enjoyed it very much. They got to make a trip to Bremen, for the Freimarkt - Bremen's annual fair. It's a good thing I finished them in time, because it was about 55 degrees outside, and clammy. The cold air made all the fried fair food that much tastier, though!

I also finished my first toe sock on the flight home, so I'll hope to have a picture of it up soon, via my cell phone. Right now I'm frantically working on my second sock for Sock Day Club, hoping to have it ready for its November 7 debut party.

Wow! Secret Pal!

We've just started a new round of Secret Pals at River Knits, and I feel spoiled already! My Secret Pal left me a giant ball of loop merino, with a shawl pattern. I'd been wanting to knit a nice shawl, and now I have everything I need to get started! If I weren't so eager to get the German socks done, I'd have started already. Thanks, Secret Pal!
