I didn’t have them done in time for yoga last Sunday, but I finished them the next day so I’m ready for next weekend!
Pattern: Twisted Rib Yoga Socks
Yarn: Plymouth Earth Oceanside Oraganic
Started September 21, 2009
Finished: September 28, 2009
I talked about these last post, but to recap – liked the pattern, love how they came out, hated working with the yarn. So much so that I put the other two skeins I had back in the stash so I get a bit of a break from it (does someone want it? I’d be happy to trade!) I really do like the fabric it makes though – its so silky/cottony. I loved how fast this was – DK weight socks go so fast!
I really like the stitch pattern – I think I may use it for a pair of real socks sometime. I wonder how it would look in a fingering…
So I really liked yoga – I can’t wait to go next weekend. It wasn’t hard, but at the end I was really relaxed. I was sort of surprised I was so relaxed – I’m generally pretty wound up, and have a very hard time turning off my brain. But at the end, we did shavasana (basically just lying there) and by the end I was just completely boneless. I don’t know what it is, but I felt good for the rest of the day. I wish I had done this years ago!
Its getting cold here – today was only in the low 50’s (Farenheit). And the cooler it gets, the more I start thinking about hats, scarves and mitts. I know – I have enough projects going, but I just like having small projects to knock out in between all the bigger ones. I think I need the motivation of a finished project to keep me slogging through the slower ones. So I kept on looking on Ravelry, looking in my stash….and today I really needed the lift of a new project (kids – grrr! don’t ask!). So I started this with this yarn. I’m really happy to use the yarn – I bought it on vacation in Maine, and I’ve always loved it. And I think its perfect for a hat – very warm, and I have just the right yardage. I am really enjoying the pattern so far, and hope to finish it this weekend. I am already thinking that I may make my sister one – or maybe I’ll just make another one for me! I need to find a great button for it though – so maybe I’ll take a quick trip to the yarn store this weekend…
I got the Joji’s Premium Lllama yarn yesterday – so nice! I’ll have to get a good picture of it but I can’t show you how soft it is – its amazing. I’m thinking of making Willoughby with it (and it would be nice with my new hat). I just have to resist the urge to start something new before I finish something in the basket (my poor vest is crying at the neglect!)
I’m off to work on the hat – don’t you love the excitment of working on a new project?
Have a great week!
