For just simple things on my needles I have this Everyday cardigan from www.peacefleece.com in worsted weight. Its a simple knit, something I can do and put down when the need arises. I much rather work in the round, but didnt' want to take the time to work out the math, so I am knitting backwards all the purl rows so I don't have to purl. lazy or what? But it is fun and a little challenging so such a simple sweater. I had to get these off the needles "killer tomato" socks from http://www.spunkyhats.com/ off the needles so I could make room for these: Etsy purchases thanks to Lime and Violet
The one on the left is called piness from www.sunshineyarns.etsy.com and the other is Shana from http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=41776 I'll start with the one on the left and do up the Gentleman's Fancy Sock from Nancy Bush's "Knitting Vintage Socks" . I loved those socks since I first saw them, I love them in that color...so I think they'll be gorgeous and fun to knit.
Here is a scary picture. Its just my sock yarn. (It doesn't count the two balls above or the 2 I have coming from Lisa Souza. www.lisaknit.com I joined the Lime and Violet Sock Marathon and am trying to knit at least 3 miles from my 10.19 miles!
So here is one of the reasons I haven't blogged lately. My daughter and dear 1st grandson, Bronson were visiting with us. It was such a pleasure to have him here. Its all John and I can do not to race to Abbotsford and steal him back. Oh well. I hope to get down for a visit every 6 weeks or so in the summer, a little less in the winter as it is a 6 hour drive in (usually) bad weather conditions.
