Knit night at the junkyard

So knit night was super cool. I found the place OK(no easy feet in the dark) and was greeted by 4 of the most lovable dogs I have ever met. I explained I was looking for knitters and hoping this was the right place. Miss V's hubby just laughed and sent me upstairs with Minnie to join the fun. She host Knit Night in her studio. After making sure I did not drool on the fiber (which is everywhere) I sat down and finished my Kaffe sock and did a few rows on the Cobblestone. I seem to fit right in with these ladies. We talked about people we both knew (turns out Miss V and I know some of the same folks). One gals Hubby used to work for the company I just left. V is so funny and the rest of the ladies so nice. I am sure to go back. I told her about you Simone. She says Hi. I will try to get a picture next time.

I traded a skein of sock yarn from my stash With Miss V. for a skein of L&V sock yarn. It is so pretty. She let me pick it right off the wall! I wanted something unlike the yarns in my stash and I got this beautiful skein. I tell ya it was all I could do not to stuff a few down my shirt, but I want to go back so I restrained myself. This is Lime & Violet Sasquatch Sock. 75% wool 25 % Nylon. 425 Yards colorway:Pillywiggan. It is so purtty!
V did not want to give up any of her stash. (which is impressive to say the least) but I I am happy. I know just who these socks will be for, buts for after Christmas knitting.
I must say I never thought I would go out to meet someone I had met on line but this was a good time. Knitters are good people everywhere you go. Thanks Miss V for inviting a total stranger into your home. You Rock! I'll bring yummies next time.

The skein is gorgeous, is it as soft as it looks on the picture?
