Some of you may remember that I went out last year to visit Margene with Carole and Terry. I remember coming home and finding it very difficult to blog about our time together. There was something so precious about the 5 days of grrls sharing a piece of themselves with each other.......and it was hard to describe. It still is, but I am sure that many of you know exactly what I am talking about.
While I was at Margene's she bestowed upon me a wonderful birthday present, which contained some Claudia yarn that I was lusting after. While on a trip this past summer, I started a pair of Claudia/Carole socks, using this pretty yarn.....in that plain stockinette knitting with the beautiful picot edging.
Somehow they were put aside to work on other fibery pursuits, but I made sure that they did not find their way into the bowels of one of my deep baskets. I put them in the little sock bag, next to my chair so that they could wait for a free moment. How perfect that the right moment just happens to be just a few mere days before I see Margene and Carole....and hopefully Claudia :). It's funny how things complete that circle of friendship, even when we do not plan it.
On another note, I finally managed to get my website back online....whoo hoo! Many years ago when the internet was in it's infant stages, I learned how to write code and do websites.
Well....all these years later, so much has changed! I am proud that I managed to customize the templates that I used for the new site, but I will tell you that it has been a HUGE challenge. I think I did ok, but fingers are crossed that it doesn't blow up or self destruct....LOL.
Take a peek and if you see any bugs, let me know. I have only scratched the surface at getting inventory back up, so I will be adding things daily until it is complete.
I forgot how much work it can be.........but I quickly remembered how much I LOVE this particular kind of challenge :).
It has been a beauty of an Autumn for sure here in the mountains!
PS......I am looking foward to seeing many of you this weekend in Rhinebeck!
