The Number 100

The only reference to that title in this post will be this: Aspire To Knit has reached 100 posts. Amazing. I must be doing something right, because I still like it here.

I know this is sick, but I checked my Ravelry place-in-the-queue again, and now it's down to 1244. Oo, oo, oo. Sweet.

Knit night was really great tonight (yes, I know, but my husband said it was okay to go on our anniversary.) because there was a huge group, about half of which were new faces. We did a great little round of intros, so I finally got to learn a bunch of names. You don't get that when you're the only new face and everyone else knows each other. I also learned a bit about the shop and some of the folks that have been around since the beginning, and the more I know the better I feel about this little knitting community.

I also learned tonight that Blue Moon is going to have a booth at OFFF this year. I think that means I am required to go. As if weren't giving me enough budgetary problems already.

Today was also the day I learned what it means to be utterly bored with all the projects on needles. HIAH (say hee-ah) socks are driving me nuts because the yarn is not enjoyable to knit with. I started the second of a plain purple pair, made a few more rows on the laceweight Pie R Square shawl, tore out and redid the heel of the felted slippers. I think what I'd really like is to get a few more skeins of the new Kureyon colors from KB and work a few more Lizard Ridge squares. By now you're all as bored as I am.

Really, I should just nip off and get some sleep.

Congratulations on the 100th post! Keep it up. I just got my invite to Ravelry and have been working on entering my library into Library Thing. Ahhhh. I'll never get done.

Congratulations! You write a good blog, not boring at all. Dang, I almost went to knit night last night, but naturally, other things (such as "laundry") intervened. Sorry I missed you. One of these Wednesdays, for sure I will be there!
