It wouldn’t show in a photo, but the whole white world in my corner of the universe is melting. Quickly. Yup, we’ve been above 35 degrees F for nearly 24 hours now, and the 19 inches of snow I was so excited about is now 7-10 inches of slush. Ick.
I’m really glad you all liked the sweater pattern, and I hope you find a moment to make one. They really are so cute, and quick!
I finished a pair of socks, the blue striped ones to be exact.
They were knit with Meilenweit self-striping sock yarn, just straight-up stockinette socks with a ribbed cuff and flap heel. Hannah-cat shredded the ball wrapper from the yarn, so I can’t tell you which colorway it was, but I’m pretty sure I listed it a couple of posts ago.
I’m almost to the heel on the Golden Delicious socks, and hope to finish them out this evening. Blogger’s giving me fits about photos again, so I feel lucky to have gotten one up – you can imagine the rest, no? I’ve also started the mate to a pair of fingerless gloves I began knitting ages ago, before we left Alaska. More on those in the coming days…
In other “I Clearly Have Sanity Issues” type news, I finally bit the bullet and applied for admission at the local university, and it’s pretty much a given that I’ll be accepted. It’s about time I finished a degree and decided what I’m to do when I grow up. So if I seem swamped and don’t find a lot of time to blog come mid-January, well, that will be why… (Honestly, I’m completely thrilled, though a little intimidated; it’s been quite some time since I was taking classes and had homework of my own!)
All for now!
