The finish is often simply a soft sigh. These socks were no different. A little bit of kitchener, then a search for a place to photograph.
This one was easy. Last year was feet to the fire, here. This year, same place, different location at the Inn. I cannot say it was fun sitting in the rocker with no shoes. But I had to put on my big girl socks, and the job was done.

Our fiber lives were made much more interesting this past Saturday. Thea of BabyCocktails organized a trunk show with Sarah Dimond (Plucky Knitter) and Cecily Glowik MacDonald at an LYS. It was FUN. Plucky had shipped lots of yarn ahead to make us happy, and it did.
And we did. I was enabled. I think my defenses have weakened. I saw a Black Cherry Lambic cowl, bought yarn for that. Previously unexcited about the Color Affection shawl, I saw one draped around neck and shoulders in the crowd, and bought yarn for that. I took the opportunity to buy twosies in several other colors. I find I have not the quantities for some of these delicious wraps on Rav. This trunk show fixed that quasi-problem for awhile.
Spinning is happening. Yes, weaving is, too. I need to find a cheery day for pictures. The brain tickle from SOAR hasn't faded, and the new tickle on the loom is intoxicating.
