I almost forgot it’s the first Thursday of the month! My memory got a reminding kick when I saw the posts of fellow members:
Katherine (Fiber and Sustenance)
will probably get hers up later of which I’ll update her link then. now has her sock post up. Her link has been updated.
So on my end I skipped June with all that had gone on. And while I had slouched on the couch, Yule Ball gave me the salty eye. It has not progressed past this old picture. I really feel my gauge is tight as the fabric feels like that. I think knitting with these Karbonz DPN’s just don’t work for me. I know I didn’t feel relaxed like how I usually do and perhaps with my gauge swatch having been knit as a flat one, the gauge isn’t entirely accurate.
I want to frog it, Someone thought I shouldn’t and to let it just hibernate because I had gotten that far and maybe I’ll want to pick that back up and work upon it another time. (・・。)ゞ I dunno. I feel like it’s hanging over my head and I already have two garments doing the same thing. I don’t like that feeling. Things that make you go hmmm…
So lately my being was craving some zen because my crafting mojo has been all over the place. I wanted something easy while I watched more Gilmore Girls (finally on season 5). To assuage that restlessness, I cast on a vanilla sock:
This Opal Der Keline Prinz, The Little Prince line. When our crew holidayed in San Diego three years ago, the last day we checked out yarn stores. Arañitas Yarn by Sofia was the only one open. I was thrilled to find she sold Opal sock yarn, one that I’ve never found up in the city. I picked up two skeins from The Little Prince line, feeling like when the announcer yells, “Scoooreeee,” in a televised soccer game. The colorway is The Rose of the Little Prince. I like how it’s knitting up; the feel is slightly rustic but still
soft gentle enough in texture and drapey.
Okay; I need to go make some caffeinated tea as my eyes are getting droopy. Thanks for dropping by and TTYL.
