So, I went away for the weekend and then caught a nice sniffly cold, so that’s where I’ve been for the last week. And in my balloon-headed state it’s hard to work up the drive to knit, but at least I did manage to finish the Kool Aid socks a couple of days ago:
Also, I was out of town during the new Knitty release, so now I REALLY feel like I was out of the loop. I’ll have to take a 2nd look at the issue but sadly I don’t think there was anything that really jumped out at me screaming KNIT ME KNIT ME KNIT ME. Hm. Or, that could just be because I have plenty of other knitting to keep me busy already.
That’s my latest yarn acquisition – my first skeins of Cherry Tree Hill handpainted sock yarn, one in ‘jewels’ and one in ‘blueberry hill’. they’re gorgeous. The book is my copy of ‘A Christmas Carol’, which is up on the reading list for December at Knit The Classics. I have a couple of ideas of small things I could knit to go along with the book, but it’s a matter of whether I’ll have time to do the actual execution. Hm.
I hope y’all are well. Stay non-sniffly and cuddle your yarn for me!
