Is there anyone out there going to Greenbelt & who would like to meet up for some knitting whilst there? I had quite a few comments and emails when I posted the pic of my Greenbelt wristband, with people saying they were going. I have sorted out what I'm going to take with me, in terms of knitting (haven't done anything yet about tent, sleeping bag, clothes etc etc. You know, priorities!). This large lump of pink/purple/yellow hand-dyed Opal sock yarn and my DPNs:
which will be used to make this pattern from Knitty. I'm hoping the colours will be bright enough. They haven't come out too well in the pic above, so here's what they looked like before winding:
It had to be a sock knit, as I'm going on the train and haven't got space for much stuff! So, if you're going to Greenbelt look out for me and the psychedelic sock yarn! Would be great to have a knitting meet up whilst there. :-) I was the only person (again) at Knit Lincs this afternoon. Sob. Gulp. Sniff. Suspect this may be due to the school holidays.
Also, I think I really need a man in my life. To get that skein wound up I had to use the chair back, and I'm sure a man would have been more helpful. How does "would you like to help me wind some yarn" sound as a chat-up line?!
Or maybe one of those ball winder things I've seen on other blogs would be more use? After all it wouldn't leave the loo seat up, or pick its nose or fail to do the washing up/clean the bathroom, or come home drunk three hours after it was supposed to etc etc.
