Orange and Maroon Effect....
As many of you are already aware today was "Hokie Hope" day, a nationwide effort to band together as one. Salem attempted something today that was pretty amazing, on one days planning I might add. At noon the City's bell rang out 32 times for each victim of Monday's tragedy and those who assembled joined hands to make a human chain of support for Virginia Tech. A pretty amazing event...and I forgot to take my camera! If I find any pics on the web or links to it I'll pass them along your way.
On Monday I was just getting ready to post a surprise my buddy Krafty1 "popped" on me in an effort to relieve me of my "virginal" state...but Nikki beat her to it just a few days prior. But as you can see I've been side tracked from knit blogging this week.
More STR has been showered upon me...this colorway is called....are you ready?
Henpecked!! With the help of Krafty1 I hope we can come up with an appropriate "chicken footed" pattern! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
I'm still plugging right along on my Civil War Shawl, toe socks and baby blanket...and of course, playing with my fiber!
I'm getting ready to mail out my Knitters Treat Exchange package...I'm just waiting on one item to arrive before I ship it! My pal and I have much in common yet live very, very far away from each other!
On Wednesday to escape watching the news and to generally get my mind off current events I visited the 19th century at Virginia's Explore Park...and getting a few dulcimer playing lessons while giving some knitting lessons!
I must learn to rub my head and pat my stomach at the same time because strumming the dulcimer is coming very hard for me! See my concentration??
GourdonGirl...my shawl is perfect!!
The weather has turned for the better...so I must go enjoy it as much as I can! Who knows when it might snow again!!
Have a GREAT weekend!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'
