hahaha, i just HAD to take a picture of this sock cuff
i find it incredibly comical that i zoomed through both these socks in a very few days’ time, and getting the last 1.5 inches done is taking me almost 2 weeks. sigh. that’s how distracted i am.
last night i took a break from the bee shawl (reluctantly) to work on the khaki golf/ice cream cone/eiffel tower sock, and managed to add several inches.
i was feeling bad after that last picture when i realized i hadn’t so much as looked at it since the day i cast on. now it’s looking a bit more substantial and dignified at least. and it’s a very pleasant knit. soon, this will be the only sock i have on the needles, so i should be able to give it a lot more sock love.
i put more than a few inches on the orchid scarf yesterday
this is really an easy, and quick-knitting lace pattern. it’s just about half done, and i swear i’ve only put in three (short) sessions of work on it.
the best part is that it has already been test-knit. my friend julie took care of that. since i had a working pattern for myself, i sent it along. and, hello! the next day she sends me photos of her partially completed scarf and OK’d the pattern. wow. she puts me to shame, but in a good way .
julie ROCKS, right everybody?
(julie is also one of the masterminds behind the craftborg podcast); go have a listen.
ok, it’s much later now than i’d like and i really want to get my butt upstairs to knit. so i’m signing off.
