Speck seemed real needy today and wanted to sit by me all day. I am sick and just felt like sleeping in the recliner all day. The electricity was off and all I could do was sit in the recliner and knit.
OK . . none of the above is totally true but all three statements are partially correct. First thing this morning I took Speck to the vet and got his nails trimmed. Then he got a bath. Then I washed all the bedding from his crate. Then I washed our sheets. Whew . . it was almost 10 a.m. and I decided to run to the grocery store. Got home in time to get lunch done and then I intended to go sew but .. Speck kept wanting me to sit with him, I really felt kinda tired and I just felt like sitting and knitting so that’s what I did. Here are some of my latest projects. You’d think I’ve fallen in love with blue!
I think you can click on each picture to see a bigger picture.
The first pair are socks were made using some Opal yarn, wool/nylon blend, and I finished them a couple of weeks ago.
The second pair is Fleece Artist’s Somoko yarn, 65% merino woolm, 20% kid, 10% nylon and 5% silk. At the end of last year, I signed up for Simply Socks Yarn‘s 2008 yarn club and this was the first of three packages I’ll receive during the year. The yarn arrived on February 11 and I started working on it immediately.
The third pair is an Opal neon, another wool/nylon blend.
The fourth pair is another Opal blend.
For those who have asked about the pattern I use, it’s Classic Socks for the Family, by Yankee Knitter. The pattern was sent to me as a gift and I made my first pair of socks from that pattern and almost every pair I’ve made have been from this pattern.
We’re expecting yet another ice storm here tonight and tomorrow. Seems like areas south of us are going to get hit worse than we are but I’m hoping none of us lose power. Oh well, if my power goes off, I can still sit and knit! 🙂
