a knitting day ...

aside from a meeting and some errands this morning, i have been knitting most of the day. it's amazing how much i can knit when the time is more than stolen moments. and, it's equally amazing how much knitting can be done in those stolen moments.

sockdown sockens

on the left is cauchy from cookie a's _sock innovation_. i'm knitting it with one of my purchases from SAFF last fall, miss babs bamboo baby. the yarn has a very nice lustre, but sometimes one of the plies will get caught on a needle and pull out a bit. the sock on the right is nancy bush's childs french sock from _knitting vintage socks_. the yarn is cascade heritage. i LOVE cascade heritage.

i knitted on both of these last weekend, and then it's just been bits here and there, as i've worked a lot of overtime in the past week. and then today, i kinda got distracted with something else ...


this is going to be haruni. here's a link to the project page on ravelry. it's a free download. yay!

the other day i wanted to wrap a red shawl around my neck, and i realized i didn't have one. well ... i will soon enough! at this point, the project is mindless enough that i can watch movies and knit w/o really missing anything.

chart keeper

of course, it helps if you have a chart keeper.

okay, back to knitting. and for reading later in bed, i picked up the new VK today.

The socks are just lovely! And I didn't know that such a thing as a chart keeper existed. I think I need to do some more investigating...

I need a chart keeper and I didn't know it. Thank you for enlightening me. The sock look like so much fun!

I'm going to have to break down and buy that Vintage Sock Book. Where do I find the Cascade Heritage yarn?
