Well, I actually got and read the bookbookbook and it is great! Little things that made me laugh out loud and have family members look at me questionably! It's a riot, if you haven't got it yet, grab it now! Haven't found too many LYS around here (Boston) that have it but Barnes and Noble does, in the knitting section.
Knitting content, knitting content... where did I put it? Oh, yes, the little blur of yarn muffin with the sticks attached? That's the Champlain sock, about 1 inch into it. I haven't been a fan of adding the "k1p1" ribbing to my sock tops, I like my socks to be smooth all the way up and I find the k1p1 rib kinda makes them "poof." Who cares- they are MY socks. :) Yes, KnitWit Momma was right, washable socks are a MUST! I can see blocking a gorgeous aran sweater out, or even a beautiful tank top. But socks? Please! I want them warm, washable and wearable. That's all it takes for me! Here is a close up of the sock yarn all knitted up.
I still have no photos of the Silk Raglan, but it's practically flying off the needles. PC says I have to "downsize" stuff before we apartment hunt. I love him very much, but this was one of those moments where I was like "do you even KNOW me?" DOWNSIZE? Take one look at my purse collection and you know that this is ridiculuos. Hey, maybe I will do a trade! One purse for a skein of yarn or something... I will think about this more. Let me know what y'all think.
Well, I should probably do work. Hmm... knitting is work, no? No, I guess I should do actual work. Being a grown-up is not fun at all.
Happy Thursday Knitting!
*side note: season finale of CSI is tonight... there will be some MAJOR knitting going on!
