Sorry for the radio silence. It’s just been a long weekend and I am still recovering from the stress and the buzz of last Thursday. A post and photos of that event will follow shortly.
I have been knitting, of course. Actually it was mostly Friday when I made progress on the Solstice Slip socks. It looks like this now.
Sock #1 is coming down the foot while Sock #2 is stuck at the end of ribbing. I didn’t plan on it to happen but as I worked on Sock #1 the pattern made me just knit and knit and knit. I became so easy to memorize the zigzag pattern and you just want to do one more row. Just one more row.
Since I have time to get this pair done, I am not rushing. I am test knitting a new design from one of my favourite sock designers – Irishgirlieknits – and it is fun fun FUN! One of the best part of this is that I am using my own hand-dyed! I finished the first part of the leg pattern today and will continue on tonight.
I also have my Dark and Stormy cardigan to knit, which might get frogged depending on how I get on with fudging the front zigzag panels.
Wish me luck. Oh and I have an FO. Finally. That’s coming up next.
