Cranberry Knitting Community

I finally got to go back & knit with the awesome ladies of Cranknitters last night! It was so much fun. There were 2 newbies to the group there last night and one lady stopped by to see what we were doing (Cranknitters meets in Barnes & Noble) and may join our group. The ladies are all so friendly and talented.. they made me feel a part of the group. Also - under Connie's watchful eye and with alot of her help, I was able to finally start work on the gusset of my ML sock. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. She showed me the basics - where to pick up stitches and decrease. I spent the rest of the evening working on my gusset. And like a child that just mastered a skill, I proudly showed Ms. Connie that I 'got it' along with my work product. Thank God she's a patient woman. I asked her alot of questions. Below is a picture of my heel and gusset work thusfar.. It's not a great pic - but you get the idea.
I went and visited Knit One North today and bought me some beautiful Cascade 220 Superwash Paints in Sunshine and some Classic Elite Alpaca Sox in Red Riot. (Yarn Porn ahead..) I got to meet Carolyn and Dawne (Sorry - I previously mispelled your name.) who were very friendly and welcoming. I went. I saw. I fondled (yarn, that is - geesh). It was great. Brian got to knit a few rows on a knitting swatch Carolyn has going in the shop for anyone who wants to knit a bit. She's going to let it keep growing and growing and taking on a pattern and life all it's own. I thought it was really great that Brian contributed something to their new store. I asked to be contacted the minute I could sign up for Cat Bordhi's class and Carolyn was gracious enough to take my info. Also, she told me that they are planning alot of upcoming classes Saturday mornings and some evenings -plus a Ladies' Night Out (sit 'n bitch basically) on Friday nights. I think I found my PA yarn home. :)Toodles.
