Gentleman’s Plain Winter Sock (ugly sock). Actually, it looks OK on the foot, but it is a rather unusual pattern, and could be death by boredom, were it not for this self-patterning yarn I found buried in the stash. I’ve actually started the leg since this photo was taken. (knitting ferociously during Thursday night’s episode of CSI – Grissom is back!!)
Everything else has fallen victim to the knitters’ curse – for every week of extrordinarily productive knitting thou hast – there shall be dropped stitches and forgotten yo’s in abundance for two weeks. Oh, and a cat shall eateth not one, not two, but four of your projects and barf them back out forthwith, leaving thou with an aversion to touching said projects.
Y’all have been hit by that curse right? No? I can send you the cat so you can see if it follows her. I can hear you all saying, “Oh no, she dit-int!” Oh yes. She did.
I started this “Brooke’s Column of Leaves” scarf, out of some really old but very pretty stash and thought a pair of my muffatees would be a cute match, as I’ve got four skeins of this. I did have a cuff and not just the cast on you see at the left this AM. Now I got nuthin’…. Damn Cat.
I did finish the Dalarna socks for the Knitting On The Road KAL / SAM3 and you can see them here. Snicket socks are working up slower than molasses in January, there’s just always something else that wants to be knit. Like “Poppy“, I cast on the sleeves and am doing random striping with no texture on the sleeves, just the lower bodice.
I’ve started a webring for knitter’s in Ottawa and area. I had surfed around and didn’t see one so, thought I’d get one going. It should be up and running soon and it has a home on my “Other Crafty Pursuits” pages at: Canada’s Capital Knitters.
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU! to everyone who dropped in and left a comment last week. It was great to hear from some new folks and from my regular blog readers. You keep me inspired (and on track with the knitting). Come back anytime :).
