New Socks!

A new pair of socks for me!

I’ve been neglecting my sock knitting horribly, but with a little bit here and a little bit there, I finally have a new pair of socks! They are made with Fingerpaints, by Cherry Tree Hill, in the Cider House colorway, which I had received in a Yarnbox package last May.  This yarn is amazing! It’s 100% superwash merino that’s tightly twisted, giving … Continue reading →

Knitting on the train

Knitting on the train

I went to a baby shower in the city yesterday (my knitted hippo found his new home). The venue was beautiful, and was right on the river.   The idea of driving in the city terrifies me though, so I decided to take the train. That turned out to be a GREAT decision. Normally on my “day off” I run around like a … Continue reading →

Remember that lacey jacket / cardigan thing I was working on (and frogged twice)?  It’s been slow going, but the back just came off the needles last night – here it … Continue reading →

Queuing

Last night, I couldn’t decide what to do. I could have made some progress on any of the 3 new patterns I’ve been working on. I could have (finally) written up the review of my LYS that I’ve been meaning to write. I could have just worked on my Socks with Sarah socks, or the lacey vest/jacket thing that is … Continue reading →

I WON! (and other Socks with Sarah updates)

As you all know, I’ve been participating in the Sock with Sarah KAL this year. For the month of May, Sarah challenged us all to try something new, and called it the “May challenge.” She then unveiled an absolutely magnificent list of prizes from various sponsors. There were so many prizes, it took her 7 posts to list them all! The … Continue reading →

My May Yarnbox is here!

I was so excited to get this little package in the mail yesterday! Here’s what I got this month: I got another yarn that’s new to me. It’s called Fingerpaints,by Cherry Tree Hill Yarns. It’s a self striping, superwash merino sock yarn. The color I got is called “Cider House.” The overall feel is a burgundy, but it has the whole rainbow of colors … Continue reading →
