i spy ...



... something red ! as i don't have any of my own knitting to share today, i will share my neighbor's! i spotted this handknit sock sunning in the window yesterday as i was leaving.

and where's my knitting? it's on pause. i've had one of those days where i can't bear to be challenged in any way, so i'm crocheting something fun.

but, here's the scoop: lady eleanor needs to be dunked in woolwash and blocked ... a trial blocking ... to see if i like her fabric on the needles i'm using. i had a small (rude) revelation yesterday ... my gauge kinda changed when i started knitting & purling backwards vs. turning my work all the time. oops.

i'm also working on a sock, with my claudia handpaint (again). though i am on the gusset, i don't feel terribly committed to this sock. hmmm .... poor claudia ..... it almost makes me want to knit with some of my reginald instead. i kinda feel like i need a sure thing ... like size 1's and 72 sts.

Hmmm, a mysterious red sock in the window...whatever could it mean? A secret code, perhaps????

Do you not like the Claudia as much? If not, I have some Regia I'm willing to trade.
