Catch Up

After fighting some viral something or another, I am starting to come back to normal, which means I am knitting again.

I had to tear out my sock KAL as the toe had a ridge.  That is a no no.

Since I had to restart, I decided that Jill was right and I  seperated my ball of yarn into two and used two seperate needles to knit the socks.  And this is where I am.

I need the Dove Dark Chocolate to exist.

I should be zipping along up the leg on the second sock, but am not.  The secret is out - it takes me forever to knit a pair of socks.  But I am having fun and I learned a new cast on.

In the meantime, I have been working on other projects.

I started a cowl for my sister to replace the cowl I made for her for Christmas and it was out of wool and itched.  Therefore, I called up my favorite hand dyer, Yarn Hollow, explained what I needed and several weeks later I had 2 skeins of a lovely alpaca and silk light worsted blend in soothing pastels.

Along with that I started and frogged a pair of mittens for SEEDS.  (bulky yarn makes too big mittens)

And then, of course, we have puppy class for the two young ladies that think they know what they are doing.
