I was only able to make one of the knitting guild meetings this year because they always fell on the same night as my committee meeting at my daughters' school. The one I attended had this Star Wars cartoon in the newsletter. Pretty funny. And totally fits my blog. 

Let the Summer of Socks Begin! 2 days and counting until my epic drive from the Lower 48 to Alaska.  And here is the yarn I am bringing. Plus another skein of Bomb Pop. It is probably way more than I can actually knit in the time I'll be gone but isn't that what traveling knitters always do?

I finished this book. It is really inspiring. I am fascinated with Middle Eastern culture for women and this book was a very interesting, and terrible sad yet inspiring, book. After reading it you will never take education for granted again. I think I may have my daughter read it. 

So what are my plans for all these sock weight skeins? I've learned a few things about my sock knitting over the years. 

I'm off to wash some Navajo-Churro fleece. Because that seems like the most important thing on my to-do list...

Sharing with Ginny and Nicole.
