Things I learned since Sunday that I already knew (or should have known)
Old friends and annual gatherings are the best way to spend an afternoon. Especially if there's at least one other knitter
It definitely takes more than 2 skeins of Artyarns SuperMerino to make a pair of socks in my foot size.
Webs is fab on the phone. So easy to order from and happy to grab matching skeins off their shelves. Webs has a discount if you spend , um, more than one skein's worth.
It is dangerous to leave your credit card sitting next to the computer after you order body lotion because put together with Item 3 above, you will end up with two pair of additional socks' worth of Artyarns Supermerino. Holiday knitting, here we come.
Referring to item 4 above, because you will uncharacteristically order a groovy new camera strap to stand out from the boys. An item you haven't felt necessary since...forever.
You hope it'll arrive in time for an awesome photo op in a couple of weeks. (Hint, get your red scarves knit and sent in, they can appear on famous senators' necks)
A sweet new year to all of you celebrating tomorrow!
