Too hot for socks

So yesterday was Knit in public day and I met with three Ms -- Mona, Molly and Mary -- in a coffee shop. I LOVE TO KNIT WITH OTHER PEOPLE! There, I said it.

I actually got a lot of knitting done yesterday, at the meet and afterwards. I finished the socks:

(I only wore them long enough to take the picture. You can't wear wool socks when it's 30 degrees (Celsius) outside, no matter how soft and comfortable they are.

I also casted on for the Poster Boy bag from Stitch N' Bitch Nation. Except mine will be Poster Girl (or something else entirely if I can't make it work). Yay, Caro's doing Fair Isle! Of course, I'm nowhere close be making these gloves, but I'll get there... someday.

Random annoyance: I'm on a yahoo mailing list for a knit-along, and it looks like one of the members is on vacation right now. So every time someone sends a message to the list, we get an automated "I'm away on vacation" reply. Every time! Grrrr!

Happy to hear you got to knit in public yesterday. :) Your socks are gorgeous!!!

About the list, I'd think a moderator would simply put the member on no email or at least digest until the knitter comes home.

The socks look great! I know what you mean about too hot for socks; I just finished my first pair recently and won't be able to wear them for months.
