While chasing the dog, I found other creatures on our steps and in the garden. Too much time with the Entomologists perhaps? I think they are all cute.
My regular webpage of socks for 2007 has been updated. Through the end of June it turned out to be a few more than I thought (34 thus far for the year).
Past the gusset and now on the foot of the second Chain Link. This one is going slower than the last. I have been concentrating on updating websites, reading a few books and giving my shoulder a rest.
I had been eyeing this yarn and pattern for a while. When the KAL was formed, I decided that it was time to knit this particular sweater. However, the rainbow look just did not appeal to me. I wanted something that did not have yellow, orange or green. After looking in the closet, I decided to go with colours that would go with the vast majority of my clothes. That mean grays/reds or something that looked like denim. The yarn has extremely long colour repeats making it seem like much more complicated stranded knitting than it really is. Tomorrow I wind up the wool, and away I go.
The package came the other day, and I finally have a photo. The colors are bright and cheerful and the pattern is appealing. . It might be the next sock up, or not. The Serpentine by Anni (Sockmania) is really cool. The Florenz for the SKL I don’t find anywhere near as interesting. But it is an ankle sock and one of the girls will like it. I haven’t picked yarns for any of those yet.
