Larry never reads my blog – I doubt he knows what the URL for it is. He’s aware of it, of course – he doesn’t even blink when I take pictures of muffins, or force Cieara to stand on a chair so I can get a better picture of socks. He’s supportive of my knitting and blogging, but just never got into reading it (maybe because he hears about knitting enough in real life?). And that’s ok – especially tonight. Because I can show you that I finally finished his Father’s Day socks….
Pattern: Its something from Sensational Knitted Socks – can’t remember. If I find it, I’ll update. How is that for helpful?
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces, Shepherd Sock, Tuscany colorway
Started: March 24
Finished: June 4
OK, not my fastest sock, eh? No excuse other than I was spending a lot of my commute time on the shawl. Now that the shawl is too big to take on the train, I went back to the socks. Well, some of the blame for it taking so long is also that I’m more likely to sleep on the train than knit lately. I’ve been trying to stay awake, but getting 5 or 6 hours of sleep is just not enough.
Are you wondering why the pictures are particularly bad? Its because I was hiding in the bathroom to take the picture so Larry wouldn’t see. Terrible light in there. But I wanted to blog them so I can wrap them. If I get a better picture when he has them, I’ll post in Ravelry.
I do love Lorna’s Laces Shepherd’s Sock. Really love it. I think it may be my favorite sock yarn. I just love the way it feels and the stitch definition. And the colors. I think I bought this at Loop last year during a knitting group yarn crawl (and I just realized its been a year since I went to Loop – I think its time for another yarn crawl!).
We bought the dogs a new dog bed – its huge and really squishy and nice. And the dogs haven’t really had a chance to try it out…because someone has taken it over.
Don’t you wish you could be that relaxed? Have a great rest of the week!
