I have started the second Sock in the Sock and Mittens Club being run by Janet Perry. Being in a little funk I decided to stitch something small while we are on the road. We finished loading the motor home yesterday and after dithering around all morning we finally got on the road around noon. We weren’t going far so there was no hurry. We had an offer for a free night, free dinner and free breakfast at the Lazy J Campground in Tucson. It is a lovely park and right off I-10. The only drawback is that it is HOT here. Right now it is 96 in the shade with a hot breeze blowing. Our air conditioner is getting a workout but is handling the job just fine.
I spent a couple of hours on the floor of my studio earlier this week trying to select colors for this second sock. I became very frustrated with the way I have my threads organized (?) ! Doing bargello requires several values of a color and I seem to have one or two values but not the third. How can this be when I feel like I am a member in good standing of the SABLE club.
The lesson to be learned on this Sock is transitioning from color to color. I will be anxious to hear what Janet says when I post this to th Yahoo group for this club.
Tomorrow we start traveling north….where I think there is cool and rainy weather. Our first destination is the Oregon Coast and it will take us about a week 🙂
