It's great to have friends

Friday night was friend night. The green Sockotta socks got to go out on the town.
My group of friends from school (we've been together for 40 yrs) all got together to enjoy the fire pit and some of the gang decided they needed beer and cigars.
Neither excited me but the chance to spend the evening with friends - count me in. My godson and out friend's daughter from college were there. Godson is turning 25 in a few months and College girl is 19. She had a crush on him her whole life and still gets excited when he's around. Maybe……

Saturday was a quiet day. I didn't go out of town this weekend so decided to truck across the cities to go to Sheepy Yarn Shoppe in White Bear Lake.
I bought some yarn there last week to teach my friend how to knit and decided I should play with the yarn - just to be sure it was okay for her. (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). Well, I decided on a shawl and 1 skein doesn't to it. So - I went back the 25 miles to the shop to get some more yarn.
Well, the shawl is further along. It will be nice to have a few shawls in the living room for company to be nice a cozy warm.

The last couple nights I got some knitting done. I'm getting some dishrags made for presents.
Here's another bias square for Greensburg. I decided to try creating a blended look by doing 2 rows of color 2 then 2 of color 1 before switching to the color 2 section. It makes the color change a little smoother.

I got the first Sock of the month done. It's Sockotta.
I didn't like the patterns heel connection so instead of sl1 every row I decided to do a 1 st garter st at the beginning of each row of the heel flap. I like the look.

Chief thinks this is a great weekend for taking it easy!
Meanwhile - Bert is hiding out under the bed and doesn't want his picture taken today.
