The problem with knitting a few things at a time and giving them each a little attention when you can, is that everything is finished up in a flurry. Brier, Lady Hat, Grrlfriend Gloves, DFS, and even some charity knitting, all came off the needles in the same weekend. Several things have been put into process since, but they are ALL in the beginning stages. Nothing very much to blog about, so it seems. (Except 'the process over and over AND over again.)
Thank goddess, however, for dear Emilie's small feet. One sock is finished and the other should be wrapped up soon. Seaweed hasn't had much attention, nor has Sally's Funnel Sweater, as sock knitting, both good and not so good, has taken most of my knitting time. Emilie's sock has been comfort knitting, a well behaved Child's First Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks. I love the Koigu and the pattern shows up nicely, too.
Jaywalker's may be ready to behave but there has been little progress from yesterday's photo. The new yarn is Hand Painted sock yarn from Dorchester Farms. (Color name isn't listed on the skein.) It's a softer yarn, in that it has less twist than Koigu and knits at a little larger gauge, producing a less firm than Koigu. There should also, be plenty of yarn unlike some other knitters. The charm x 3 seems to be working. My new motto is 'they will fit someone!'
Suzy sent the boyz a lovely treat of her home made peanut butter biscuits. They were in heaven! The only time they will stand side by side, without picking on each other, is when there is potential for a treat (sibling rivalry is alive and well). With a little bribery they posed together for Lizzy B.
Moxie and Murphy.
It's warming up a bit and might just hit freezing this weekend. We still have sun, with the threat of an inversion looming...it's warmer at the resorts than in the valley. Our weekend is so busy that it's doubtful we'll make it up to the mountains, but it will be lovely nonetheless.
Enjoy your weekend!
