I'm still entertaining the world's most fun knitting partner, so blogging has fallen a distant 3456th in things to do. It's also been a blur of family activities, with Amy's first-ever dance recital and the beginning of her soccer season. Laurel is just enjoying being along for the ride, and is glued to her Gran whenever she can get anywhere near her.
I've been cheating on the yarn diet by the mouthful, a skein here, a hank there. Same with the plunge. Cheat a little, sock a little.
Gaspereau was disappointing this time around, for reasons I won't express publicly. However, I did find a nice discounted bit of Sea Wool.
LK was as wonderful as usual, and the basket of Fleece Artist beckoned once more. These 2 yarn cakes were sold together, and while one looks considerable bluer than the other in the photos, they really do appear to be twins in real life.
A forgotten e-bay transaction arrived. STR lightweight in Tide Pool. Project still to be determined.
And in major cheating acquisitions, this arrived last week.
(as well as some of the newer size sock needles.)
Any guesses as to the intended pattern for the above?
I've settled on winding and working one hank at a time, between socks. That breaks up the Plunge while still allowing me to do something a little bit different.
Something different? Sea Silk!
Amy's Montego Bay Scarf from the latest IK. This one gets a few rows here and there, when I crave a little sheepless fun.
Plunge Pair #23 is now on the feet of my beloved. Opal Mosaik, plain ol' stockinette, his favourite colour.
(My God, I loves me those skinny little chicken legs.)
#24 is just about done, a pair of Pomotamus for Amy done at 2/3 scale. I don't know what I'll do when her feet grow much more, as right now it's so easy to base her sock size on my own.
Tonight it's knitting in the city, perhaps an evening of cheating on my socks. Happy Tuesday to all, and thanks for all of the nice comments and messages re. Coupling. Knit on!
