Knitting frenzy

My friend Annette took me to late night knit night at The Sow's Ear in Verona last night. It is the most wonderful knitting store- in addition to a fantastic selection and lovely ambiance, they have pretty much the best brownies ever. I hadn't been around that many knitters in a really long time- probably not since I saw the Yarn Harlot in spring 2008. It was such a nice time. Also very good for productivity. I finished up one pair of socks and nearly finished the first of another pair. That sock was then finished today while I spent the afternoon at Lakeside Fiber Arts, another wonderful store just a bike ride away from my apartment.

I also pulled out my A Very Harlot Poncho again. I made this about 2 years ago, but it sat unworn in a bag for the whole time. I decided to shorten it and give it a garter stitch hem to prevent rolling and give it a more finished look. I am quite a fan of it now in its new and improved form.

A pleasant side effect of shortening said poncho:

A skein and a half of Malabrigo chunky with which I can do whatever I want. I wonder what it will become?
