I returned from Kalamazoo last night after a drive lasting more than an hour longer than it should have; I can't wait until the construction on the Dan Ryan is done, but I have a feeling I'll have started, finished my PhD and have tenure before that happens... I stopped briefly at Stitching Memories to peruse their sock yarn selection and came home with some Shelridge Farm 3-ply in a pink-orange colour way. Unfortunately, the price tag is covering any further information.
Here's sock 27 of the year; the mate of the sock in my previous post. It's resting on the windowsill of my dorm room at Western Michigan. My mother yelled at me because the first picture I took was of my knitting; not of my friends, not of the campus.
I didn't get as much knitting done as normal; the trade off, though was that I heard some interesting papers, made good contacts, and saw many non-knitter friends. I also received a scarf in a wool-soja blend from a Canadian knitter--also a friend. It's lovely and will match my winter coat quite well.
