It started snowing around lunchtime today and continued gently all day. It’s supposed to come down a lot tonight, and tomorrow we should have 10+ inches. Hooray! I clicked these on my walk home from the dentist.
In knitting news, the latest sock is Hedgerow Socks, by Jane Cochran (link to free pattern). These have been in my queue for a while, and I even started them once, but didn’t think they made good office knitting. They still aren’t the easiest office knitting I’ve ever done. This surprises me. The stitch pattern looks so easy. It’s just:
Rnd 1-2: *K2 P1 K1 P2*
Rnd 3-4: *K1 P1 K2 P2*
But it can be difficult to see which round you’re on. I haven’t had to rip back yet (knock on wood). I also feel like I’m improving my ability to read my knitting. So that’s all good.
I’m using the one skein of yarn I purchased at MDSW09, this lovely:
It’s from Green Mountain Spinnery in Vermont, a 2-ply 50/50 wool/mohair. It’s the sock yarn I aspire to spin, fine, springy, beautiful. And I adore the color, a dreamy undulation of greens that run the range from bluish-green to moss green: I also like that I’m using a New England pattern on a New England yarn. Here is how they looked a couple of days ago:Now this has a heel on it.
I still haven’t make the Deck the Ball with the Starry yarn, but I promise I’ll do it this weekend (Kristina). After all, we’ll be snowed in!
