A bit of Midwestern class comes to New England

Exciting news! We were at our local purveyor of beverages and look what has finally arrived in New England:That's right, Leinenkugel's! Unfortunately, it's not our favorite flavor (Go Honey Weiss! Go Original!) but we bought it just to show local beverage purveyor that they should keep it coming. It does help that the owner graduated from Luther and knows a good midwestern beer when he drinks it!

On another exciting note, I finished my socks! And I LOVE them! They are my best pair yet...both in execution and in comfort. Hurrah!

Details: Lorna's Laces Shepard Sport gifted to me by Dominique

Pattern: Columbine Peaks (without the peaks, given the pattern mishap) from "Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles"

And, because I was remiss in my last post: The baby bath mitt was knit in Araucania Nature Cotton using the mitten pattern from Ann Budd's "Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns." I used the mitten pattern for the gauge of my yarn. I knit an i-cord out of dishcloth cotton to create the fish.

So Kahla wouldn't let me edit her post while she was logged in. No fun whatsoever. I could have revealed the truth to everyone about the LONG process of knitting those darn socks...
They keep her feet warm, which makes her happy, and that's all that counts.
Oh, about the beer. It's a bit fruity for those of you who are wondering. If you are a traditional sort, this brew probably isn't for you.

Yeah for Leinenkugels making it to New England. I, unfortunately, cannot share in your joy as I prefer anything other than beer. If Sunset Wheat is here...your favorites will be available soon (I hope).

Love the socks!
