Twitterific?

I've been "Twittering" for a couple weeks now. I hear about it all the time, on TV, on the radio and even at the knitting shop. I only get the updates on the web and not that regular since I don't get on the computer that much. I don't like the random updates some celebrities do as I have so many to read through since last checking. Although the one from Marilyn today made me laugh and wonder why I was on the computer and not knitting on this rainy day!

So I think I'll share about my knitting. I am focused and on task for the pair of socks each month for my man. I have the yarn chosen and have narrowed my pattern options [I think] to two for April. I will be finishing this months pair by the weekend.

I'm having a hard time keeping focused on the Duxbury Point Wrap I started last November. I'm at row 96 on the 144 (yes, a gross of rows) row repeat that needs to repeat 4 times which equals 576 rows, gross. I probably did not want to know that.....

I have great expectations of finishing my Norwegian Fair isle Socks which is fun to do and surprisingly relaxing, except when the dogs run off with my yarn!

Also, knitting related. I'm attending the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling in April that I'm very excited about it. We had planned to drive but now with airfare being close to the cost of gas [and a desire to not sit in a car for ten or eleven hours] we will probably fly. Flying is slightly out of my comfort zone, as I don't do it often, the speed of time travel by plane is greatly appealing, however.

Since I mentioned the Fling, I should tell you that I am participating in a swap. It is intended so you get to know someone who also is attending the fling and therefore have a friend when you arrive. I have been partnered with Janice. She attended the first Fling last year and had a great time. I met her very briefly once before at the Midwest Fiber Festival in Illinois. I have put together her package and I chose some local things that matched her preferences and I am looking forward to her receiving them. I mailed them out today!

So, I hope it keeps raining and the rain barrels we put out Sunday fill up. I think I'll leave a twitter and then go knit!
