My knitting and I went with DH to Spavinaw, OK for the first trike in of the year. It was quite cold! Spavinah is NE of Tulsa, and diagonal across the state from Lawton. We only went for 1 day, due to lack of funds, so we left about 5 AM and arrived just before noon. We took the short trike (Miss B), and some front ends and pieces to sell and a friend sent a pair of tires and wheels. Nothing sold, so we had to borrow $$ to get back home. sigh. We didn't get back until 2AM and then sat and talked to my son, who was fur kid sitting until daylight. LOL It's been many, many YEARS since I've done that! And I was up about 10 AM with the feeling that I was LATE to work. sigh. And I don't work on Sunday. We did get to let them know about our new BTW chapter in Lawton, and get things for the chapter from the National Directors, so it wasn't really a loss. And Run went with us and was a very good boy. He flirted and broke the ice with many of the other trikers. And discovered what a river was. The mud intrigued him, and so did the water until he went in with a leg to his shoulder. He levitated back out and insisted on going to the car to get warm and away from that water monster. LOL
I cast on for my second Mon Dea sock and have about half the leg done at the trike meet.
In other knitting news, I finished the purple shawl, but it's too short. It's about to become the purple and black shawl when I get the 4 pairs of in process socks done. I've added another 3 inches to the back of the shapely tank, so I'm within 5 inches of starting the back arm holes.
My toe up socks are ready for the gussett increase, so I need to look up just how to do that. It's baby season at work with all the youngsters. So I've printed off the 5 hr baby sweater and some bootie and hat patterns. I'l have to work those in also. I think it's going to be an orangey coral and white series. But then again I also have some pastel varigated that I need to get rid of (use up) also.
