I kept thinking about taking pictures today, but it was too sunny or I was too busy, or life got in the way. It’s just narration this week – like a grown up book or something.
Last week I talked about ripping back those green socks just a few rows. Instead, I tore them all the way back. I went to start them again with the smaller needles and could only find one of the two needles I needed. I looked in multiple places, sent out a plea on Facebook (had I lent it to someone?), and then gave up and ordered a new one. In the meantime, I’ll start a different pair of socks out of some Christmas yarn.
I also mentioned ripping back the white cabled hat. I’ve reknit that into beaded cap using the Damien pattern (oh yes – those are pony beads). I’ve finished the body of the red sweater and now need to work on the arms. I don’t know that it will be finished tomorrow, but who knows.
As part of the Yarn Along with Ginny, I should probably also mention what I’m reading. I’m still reading A Clash of Kings and listening to Practical Demonkeeping. In case you’re also interested in what the boys are reading, Thing 2 is listening to The Bellmaker by Brian Jacques (part of the Redwall series). Thing 1 is re-listening to Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy, I think. That one was part of the Audiobook Sync Free Summer audiobook series. We found some new things that way, and it was a great thing. I like that now they’ve posted “if you liked that, try this” suggestions.
I’m still trying to work from my stash as much as I can. Despite how many pairs of socks/things knit from sock yarn I still have loads left, so knitting that up is still a goal. There is also the bazillion skeins of red cotton-ease I have hoarded up, and the half-finished Everyday Cardigan I was hoping to finish last year. I’m still hoping. Eish. My yardage this month hasn’t been very high, but I think it’s been an organizational month. Maybe this means that next month will be high because several things will be finished. I could hope 😉
