On to "On the Road"....
I finished the "fluted Bannister" socks from the Six Sox KAL files last night. What a fun knit! The pattern was just right - easy, yet not boring - for me at least. I am easily entertained!! They feel wonderful...(Thanks again Lisa for a wonderfully soft, beautifully colored yarn!)
Next project is "New England" from the "Knitting On the Road" book by Nancy Bush. I have had this book for years, yet have never used any of the patterns. Having Shirley as a knitting partner has given me that needed umph! I have been pretty productive of late!
Soon I need to make Sofee a new sweater, also. The Iowa winter is just around the corner. While she is still tiny, she is a wee bigger than last year, and is certainly deserving of a new wardrobe. A sweater that I made for a young Herky fits her perfectly, but unfortunately, I failed to keep good records on how I made it. Darn!!
Also, I purchased a sizable amount of DK wool while in Scotland. It is a lovely shade of Oatmeal and Apricot. Hope to make a sweater (?) out of it eventually. Eventually - hmmm interesting word... :)
I have joined a couple of new knitting webrings. Midwest knitters, and Purling Puppies. Both fit me to a "T", I thought. Hope to receive acceptance soon.
And, lastly, I have joinied my very first "Swap" event. "Sockret-Pals". Hope to get my partner's info soon. It sounds like it should be a great deal of fun.
Enough chit chat. Better get to knitting....
