saturday ...

i stopped working on my "quartz" shawl until i resolve how i want to finish the ends. (ferengi vs. other option.) but, i started a SOCK! it's from the winter 2004 interweave knits (i think), the retro rib socks. my sock yarn is cherrytree hill 'supermerino', fingering wt. sock yarn, w/o the nylon .... in colorway 'java'. it's dark, with bits of brown, olive, and steel. so, you can't really see the texture of the 'retro rib' pattern all that well, but, it's not boring knitting, and i figure some texture is better than plain stockinette stitch knitting. i have about 6 1/2" on my needles thus far. the actual color is darker and browner than the photo. i am the world's most selfish knitter too, but i don't have to think about that until i get the leg knitted, then it seems the pattern has an adjustment for the foot, to fit mine or someone elses ... it does look like a good boy sock, but, MY feet are cold.


oh, did i mention i went to knit happens yesterday in alexandria? FUN! it's a small shop, but full of beautiful yarn! and not crap yarn, but yummy yarn!
more on that later, i want another glass of wine.

this must be the sock that taunted you as you drove home? I also hate having to drive when there is a knitting project begging for attention!

Oh! The sock yarn is lovely, and you can still see the textured stitches. I think you should definitely keep the sox for yourself... you're working so hard on them!
