I'm So Excited

'Cause we're going here tomorrow!
Really, that song is going through my head! "I'm so excited!"
I've been knitting some soap socks. More soap socks, I guess I should say. What I want to knit are socks, or really another lace shawl, but I can't decide on a sock pattern, and I don't have enough yarn for another shawl right now. So .... soap socks it is!
I went to the library the other day, and one of the librarians said "Hi, Arleta, how are you? Are you knitting away this Summer?" Hehe, yeah, they know me there. I told them I almost brought my lace shawl to show off, and they want to see it next time. "Bring it in!" Ok, I almost came home and ran right back there to show off, but I didn't. Next time, though, I'll bring it and show off a little.
This fiber festival is in August. It's a longer drive than this fest, and I believe we have a family thing going on that weekend. I would love to go, though!! This lady with her cool knit themed pottery will be there, I think.
I finally put the little hat and bootie set, and my shrug up on my other blog.
Also, Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the wonderful comments! I love them, and the knitblog friends I've made!!!
Well, I've gotta run do some stuff and get ready for tomorrow!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Knit on!

Yay! I'm excited for you, too! I hope they have cool stuff like that around here. I don't know. It's pretty urban here. :( Back in Maryland, we had all sorts of craft festivals.

Lucky you! Have a wonderful time! I just went to a fiber festival last weekend and it was awesome!! It would be fun to go fiber festival hopping :-) My advice: Leave your plastic at home.. it could be dangerous ;-)!!

Dangit! Now I've got that "I'm so excited" song in my head... Yes, bring your shawl! How in the WORLD can we be expected to leave the plastic, though???
