my bland and mostly dull life with knitting thrown in for interest

jinx

I fear mentioning the sun for it will shy away behind dark grey clouds, but it is out again today! That's all I'm saying about that.

It's always nice to throw in a little jpeg of the work in progress, isn't it? Lovely little sock.


Next on the list of sock yarns is more Lana Grossa "Fun & Stripes", but in dark blue, light blue, red and orange or #626. The appeal to this yarn is that it makes predictable stripes, which makes it easier to make the mate. But I guess it depends on what you're looking for out of a self patterning yarn, right?

Dinner guests are on the agenda for this evening. Of course, I am feeling the pull to clean house! Nothing too big, just EVERYTHING! Yeah, I'm a freak when it comes to this. Oh, well. Honestly, though, I'm getting better at this since instead of the urge to clean, I'm trying to figure out when I can knit today! Nothing like a fiber addiction to let your home go to the pigs.

BOY IT SURE WOULD BE NICE IF A CERTAIN DAUGHTER KNIT HER MOTHER A LIGHTWEIGHT PONCHO FOR THOSE COOL NIGHTS ON THE BAY.
