i am not finished ...

with my lovely chocolate cabled aran vest, but ... i am about 70% there! the weather threw me off a bit, with amazing days of heat and sunshine. now ... the clouds and colder temperatures have moved back in. i am thinking of my vest again. i'm thinking, "how nice it would be if it were finished and i could wear it over the next several days!". darn.

what has been my distraction?

my goodness!

... socks. what else? lace. what else? lace & socks? ... of course.

i thought this pattern, blackrose from knitty, was just pretty !. i had some "new" sock yarn from that store i went to in hickory, nc, ... a strand of purls. lately, i feel more of an "itch" to cast on with "fresh" yarn ... nothing against the "seasoned" yarn ... it's probably just a guilt thing.

the yarn is Araucania Ranco Solid in shade 'midnight' 120. it IS midnight! i love the color, though it's hard to capture the deep variations. the knitting is slow as i can only knit on this during daylight hours. once a lamp comes on in the evening, the sock is set aside.

there is other knitting going on as well. and then there's the "next sweater" research happening too.

of course lace and socks! Such a pretty lacy sock it is!
