Well, this is what's in the box right now. She has claimed it as her own!
This is what was in the box when I opened it. What's it for? I can't tell you. Why? Is it a surprise? It is to me. This isn't my yarn. R ordered it and I haven't the foggiest what it's going to be. Maybe it's already told her what it wants to be.
This is going to be a sweater. I've been told at least that much. It's a very pretty dark blackberry.
This is what I was waiting for! They were down under the flap in the box. I was getting nervous looking through all that yarn and not seeing my needles! They will be under lock and key so none of them will be used for evil. What, you might ask, does using them for evil mean? It means when 'somebody' sneaks off with them and takes them up to 'their' room and doesn't return them in the same decade. You can probably tell that I'm not bitter though, right?
Here's a close up of the latest finished socks. Thank you very much to Thimbleanna for suggesting the pattern. It's Mockery Socks by Katie Grady of Live 2 Knit. The yarn is Blue Ox from Knit Picks. It's color is somewhere between the gray it appears to be in the above picture and the blue it appears to be in the picture below.
The color isn't really me. Hmmm, might have to be used for a gift giving occasion that is in the near future. Time will tell....
What do I do in between knitting socks? Well, I knit dishcloths, of course. This pattern is from http://homespunliving.blogspot.com and it's the waffle knit dishcloth. It works up fast even if you're easily distracted while watching television. I made these out of the self striping cotton yarn from Sugar'n Cream. I really like the way they turned out.
I guess you're all caught up now. Have a great weekend!
