I'm getting really, really close to finishing.
Now that it seems my goal is reachable, I will share it. (That way, if I don't make it, I can know with certainty that I will be ridiculed by my tens and tens of readers. *snort*)
September 30th. 6 months. 52 pairs
Can it be done?
Pair 42 says yes. Opal Rainbow. Vanilla stockinette, toe-up.
Pair 43 chimes in with a "hell yeah!" Jaywalkers in Regia Canadian, Quebec colourway, toe-up.
44 agrees. These may look familiar to some.
[I heart them so. I may wear them until they fuse to my feet.]
45 is unbloggable and just about finished.
46 will make an appearance once I've changed the batteries in my camera. I'm using Cookie A's Titania's Revenge pattern and Louet Gems merino solid. Really fun pattern, but a real test of my ability to maintain pattern while shaping. I love the wandering faux-cable panel that starts from the gusset, and will definitely use that again.
The mailman was kind once more today, bringing my e-bay treasures and not looking
too scared when I squeed at him. I now have three skeins of STR in the stash, all in lightweight and from the storm series (Downpour, Stormy Weather and Mudslide). They're all combinations of neutrals and perfect for fall knitting.)
In stash enhancement, I visited Suzy at Sunrise Mercantile and picked up a cone of Louet Gems sportweight in Caribbean Blue. Since this year will truly be the year of the gift shawl, I'm amassing gift yarn without guilt. Again, no photos until I replace the camera battery. Think blue and very, very pretty.
Waiting for Fall Knitty? Me too. I know it's coming soon, and I know of one pattern that I hope you'll really like. Set aside a skein of Fleece Artist Merino sock and we'll chat later, 'mkay?
