Temperance at Panera

I was knitting at Panera, waiting for others to show up, and decided to amuse myself by taking a picture of the sock I'm working on.
Now that others, there are six, are here; I will continue my knitting.

I attended a Swap Meet yesterday with my Knit in Public (KIP) Meetup Group. It was my first Swap event. We were supposed to bring two hand-knitted dischcloths to swap. I only had time to make one because of my studies. I was a little worried about only having one and it being a little plain maybe, but I had confidence in my sister KIPers and it didn't seem to be a big deal.

I enjoyed seeing what kinds of 'dischcloths' others had chosen to make. It was inspiring and I have ideas for what I wil make if we swap dischcloths again some day. I received a dishcloth and a bar of homemade soap from SugarBunnyBlvd. The dischcloth is blue/green/purple, my favorite colors, and the soap is Milk and Honey Oatmeal. At some point in time over the years, I got lazy and stopped washing my face at night. I decided that would be a good way to try my new washcloth and soap. Oh my goodness, it was such an enjoyable experience! The washcloth is stretchy and soft, and the soap smells good. I can't wait to wash my face again tonight.

In other knitting news, a few days ago I decided I was tired of working on the brown Temperance sock, so I decided to start another one. I'm using Panda Cotton in an Ivory color. Wow, it is soft and I am so looking forward to wearing these socks! Hopefully, this pair won't take me as long as the Temperance socks are and I will be able to wear them this summer. We'll see, though, because it's a lace pattern . . .
