New blog for 2 socks at a time kal

Here is a brand new group I have just made. Come join me and let's all learn how to knit 2 socks at the same time on 2 circular needles. After we all master those, we can find something else we want to master.
Come here
and leave me a commet letting me know you want to join.

One Mojo sock done

So this was my first toe up sock using an after thought heel. It was super easy to do, the whole thing. So I know that I want to do the other sock but not right now. I gotta find a pattern to do the 2 socks on 2 circs now. Got any suggestions???

See who came to visit me!! Yep it's Joy Blum!!!

I finally got to meet Joy Blum in person. Her and her hubby Jason and two youngest girls came over to visit for a little bit before they continue on their journey to Texas. They will be visiting Jason's parents. Joy and her family live in Oregon. I live in CA and now they are on their way to Texas and then later she will meet Nate and someone else, sorry I forget who to talk knitting!! Oh yeah and to celebrate Joys birthday. wish I could go with them. would love to meet Nate. Hi Nate!!!

It was a short visit but so much fun. Joy is exactly like I thought she'd be. Outgoing and friendly and great to talk to . She brought me gifts too!! The new debbie bliss knitting magazine and some pretty sock yarn , the Deborah NOrville collection Serenity in the colorway Thyme, 2 skeins of it. love the color of it. Thanks so much Joy!!! I gave her a project bag I made and a sheep and sheep stitch markers I made and a couple of other pins. and a yarn dot!! We were both happy. :D

I really enjoyed looking at the projects she has going. and talking to her. I know we would be tight friends if we lived close to one another. She is so full of energy and even though she has only been knitting for a year her knitting looks like she's been at it for years. Really and truly her socks astound me. She has socks down as well as lace work and cables and gosh you all know her blog right?

here is just a small part of what she had to show me. cool huh?
Course we had to take pictures together. Here it is.

Sadly we had to say good bye so her and family could get started on the rest of their trip. Hopefully one of these days she can come back and visit again. I sure do hope so.

Oh and her hubby Jason, he's so friendly and a nut so we got along just fine!!!
