too many to go! I finished the first diagonal rib sock yesterday on the train.
This is the sock that I had pulled off the needles pulling it out of my briefcase. It actually took a bit to get it back on…and you can see where it happened, but luckily its on the bottom of the foot so its ok.
I really like this pattern – very easy to memorize, but interesting to knit. I’m knitting this with Knit Picks Essential – as I’ve posted before, this yarn is ok – nothing special, and sort of scratchy. I’m knitting with US 2 – I think I’d go down a size if I used this yarn again but I don’t have any more in the stash, and not sure I’d buy it again.
I got my fiber of the month from Spunky Eclectic yesterday – its called Monster Mash…very nice! 100% wool and very Halloween-y. I really need some spinning time!
Today I’m going to get my hair done, and then this afternoon I have knitting group. I’m looking forward to it as I missed the last one. I’m hoping to get in spinning time this weekend – I think I’m going to make sure I get at least an hour tomorrow. I haven’t spun in weeks, and really miss it. I have so much nice roving to do, and its killing me to see it just sitting there.
No Saturday sky picture – its raining and miserable. Who needs to see that? But it is a perfect weekend for staying in and knitting and spinning so I’m not going to complain.
Can I end with a cat picture? Nala has become obsessed with drinking from the faucet in my bathroom – if I’m in my room, she sits in the sink meowing until I turn it on. Stupid cat.
Have a nice weekend!
