I thought I had this post all set to go yesterday . . . and…
I have started a new pair of socks.
The yarn is Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop from way back in the day. The color is called Big Yellow Taxi and it’s so bright and cheerful. I am enjoying the heck out of knitting these and, even though I only started them last Friday, I am more than half done with the first sock.
I have also started a new shawl. I do not have a picture of it because, honestly, you don’t need to see a blue blob of lace and that’s all it is right now. But still, you will want to know that the pattern is Exuberance and the yarn is Schaefer Yarn Company Andrea in the color Everywoman. It’s 1000 yards of awesome 100% silk and, although this is going to be slow going, I truly love knitting lace in the summer time.
You do recognize the significance of these two new projects, right? Yes indeed, I have finally finished the Rhombi Sweater and the socks I started last April.
Happy days are here again.
And yes, of course, there will be photos of those finished projects very soon. Or at least as soon as it becomes bearable to put on anything wool around here.
