I'm in Austin on a trip for work this week, but need to give a big Thank You to Zonda! She sent me a nice little rak that arrived last week. She sent me some leftover sock yarn so I can make another square for the Leftovers Afghan I'm making. I believe this yarn is some leftover Socks that Rock in a Christmas color. She also sent a handy tape measure, some cool stitch markers, and a sample of a wool wash I've never tried. Thank you so much!
I brought the yarn with me on the trip, but so far I haven't any knitting time except on the plane on the way out to Austin. I'm working on the matching socks that Zonda and I have planned for the upcoming wool festival.
My seat mate on the plane found the whole sock knitting thing rather interesting and got a small introductory lesson on sock construction. He claimed he found it interesting - it was fun to talk about it anyway.
I'm busy at work here in Austin, but I can't complain too much because my primary role is conference photographer. The company I work for won't pay for a real photographer and since I have a camera I got volunteered.
I don't mind really at all though. It is much better than sitting behind a registration desk for days or doing website demos for attendees. I get to wonder around a little bit too.
This photo is of some interesting flowers that the hotel has in a vase in the middle of the lobby. They are some of the wildest flowers I've ever seen. I have no idea what they are called or where they grow. They remind me of something out of a Dr. Seuss boo though.
Well my break is over for now, I'll see if I can get any more interesting photos to share later.
