I’ve had two Black Bunny Sock Flats in my stash for over 3 years.
The colors are great but I’ve dreaded prepping the yarn. I finally sucked it up and balled up the yarn this morning.
It’s been fun to have a plain vanilla sock on the needles – the ultimate grab-and-go project. The telephone cord kinks contribute their own “charm” but it’s not that bad.
Now here’s my prediction (and I hope I’m wrong). I’ll knit through sock #1 in no time (no time for me is 2 weeks) and then once the novelty of the yarn changes is gone, so will be my motivation.
An FO of sorts
I finished 2 squares for Bertie’s Blankets. It was nice to knit up something small on worsted weight yarn. Quick progress and for a great cause.
This week’s new designs
- Harlequin Opal Shawl – great texture, works well with variegated yarns and can be knit to any size.
- Innisfil Cardi – LOVE that cable. I had to stop myself from buying yarn for it this week. The reality of my track record with garments set in.
- Dragon Tails Shawl Another make-any-size shawl great with variegated yarn. Lots of options – garter or stockinette, plain or eyelet edging. And bonus – it’s a free pattern.
I’m off to cook some Sunday-food and then back to my latest obsession (those socks). I’ll catch you on the purl side.
