A good excuse.

I know I promised that I wouldn't start any new projects until I made a dent in my list of current projects. But I am planning on starting a daisy sock tonight.

daisy sock

My good excuse is that I am "out of town*" on business this week and none of my current projects travel well. Right? That's a good excuse? So - new socks!

I am using Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock yarn for the first time. My Aunt picked this yarn out for my as a Christmas gift and it is so totally perfect for this pattern.

*the reason I am "out of town" in quotes is because I am attending a conference at McCormick Place in Chicago and staying at a hotel on Michigan Ave, even though I could technically drive in from home each day. It's much more fun this way. Especially with the exceptionally crappy weather we are having.

I really do love your web-site. Usually, knitting blogs are not that beautiful. Actually, I'm just getting into knitting but I'm becoming an addict. I found an interesting web-site where there are really nice knitting kits with original patterns. Sometimes they have discounts on the web-site. Have you tried it ?

You find the cutest patterns. Love that sock. Doesn't staying in a hotel for a week (especially on the company dime) make you feel like you are on vacation - even if you are working?
