Sorry I didn’t post last week, my Mom and my Aunt Mary were in town. We had so much fun. Since Bob and I bought our house last February, my mom decided to drive down and bring me all my old stuff. It has been a walk down memory lane looking through it all. Anyway, my Aunt Mary came with her and they had a great road trip by themselves but I think we all had a great time here in OKC.
For a long time, I have been wondering where I get this knitting from. I am a self taught knitter and no one in my family really knits as actively as I do. One night while my family was in town my aunt was watching me knit and she mentioned something about when she was teaching her daughter (my cousin) to knit. I never knew my aunt knew how to knit. She said she learned from her sister (my other aunt) who learned from her grandmother who probably just learned as a child because that is what you did on the farm in the turn of the century. I never knew. So I guess this knitting of mine is really just all in the family.
Also while my family was in town, I finished the Van Dyke socks. I just know put them on sock blockers. They are nice and long and cozy. Perfect for cold winter nights.
Also, the other night, I went to the Oklahoma State Fair and stumbled upon alpaca yarn that is raised 30 minutes from my house. I love that! The company is called Mustang Alpaca after the town it is from. It is worsted weight and 150 yards so I really have no idea what I am going to do with it but I am excited and will let you know.
Well, that is all I have for today. I will talk to you all again soon.
