Hi friends! It’s that time … the first Thursday of the month, time to talk socks!
I recently finished a few big projects and found myself weighing up casting on a new project versus finishing up a few longer standing WIPs. In a virtuous fit, I decided WIP finishing was the way to go, especially as I’ve got three cardigans on the needles, all of which I love the look of — and I’ve been feeling a lack of cardis in my wardrobe of late. I was excited about my plan until I realized, with horror, that all three cardi WIPs were at or near a certain point. You know knitters talk about getting stuck on sleeve island? Well, I’ve spent some time there for sure, but recently, I realized there’s another bit of sweater–well, cardigan knitting–that I get bogged down at every time … button bands. And thus, I’m adding a new location to sweater geography … button band isthmus.
Fancy a tootle?
This past weekend was Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival … the very first yarn festival I ever went to, and one that I was lucky enough to go to several times during the time I lived in Baltimore (miss you, Charm City!) As I saw little pictures and post pop up around the Kniternet about the festival, I thought back to the last time I went, two years ago, with a lovely group of friends …
Which got me thinking about how my two-year old Maryland Sheep and Wool Fest post was one of my very early blog posts …
Which made me realize that I had missed my blog-o-versary!
Hi friends! How was your weekend? Mine was lovely and sun-filled (a bit of a rarity here) and made even better by the arrival of an absolutely stunning package from Tammy of Gracey’s Goodies for the lovely Sock Yarn Stash Swap that Kat from Felinity Knits organized!
It’s that time again … the first Thursday of the month, so time to talk socks!
