It's Fair Day

Today is Fair Day. I don't mean it's a celebration of Fair Isle knitting even though that would be cool. Fair Day is a day I actually have off in celebration of the Texas State Fair. You all read that right. Schools in my district actually get 2 days off to celebrate the opening of the Texas State Fair. I am not going to complain though because this means that I have some time to spend knitting! I wouldn't mind going to the fair today and eat all the fried goodness but 90 degrees doesn't say fair weather to me.

Today I'm working on the 2nd sock to a pair of socks I'm making. I'm not sure if I will keep them on pass them on as gifts. I'm making them using the elongated corded rib in Charlene Schurch's book Sensational Knitted Socks and Knit Picks Essential Solid in Grass. I absolutely love the feel of this yarn. It's soft and squishy and the color is beautiful. They are definitely greener in person.

I also finished a pair of Saartje's bootees. The pattern is super easy and they are probably the sweetest little bootees EVER! Easy and cute. What else could you ask for?

I guess now, it's back to the knitting and listening to audiobooks. This is my new obsession. Now that I know I can download books to my PC from the library, I'll sit here all day and knit and listen to books. I do tend to neglect other things though. Oh's Fair Day!

Your socks are so beautiful. I'm jealous that you get two days off to enjoy the fair! I would be all over the fried goodness!
