A Little Update

It's been a busy two weeks what with cottaging, potting and a little knitting thrown in but I did get some stuff finished.

The shawl for my mother-in-law has been blocked and actually got too big. I threw it in the dryer for five minutes to bring it back down to a manageable size. It think it's much better now.

The Monkey Socks also got finished and I really have enough socks now to last me a lifetime. Does that mean I'll stop knitting socks...NOT, I've already cast on a new pair, details at another time. The yarn for these socks is Gloss from KnitPicks and is 70 percent Merino, 30 percent Silk. They were a joy to knit and I'm sure they will feel lovely on my feet.

I've also started a new project and the fault lies strictly with Rudee. Pictures to follow soon.

My goodness, thatsalottashawl there. Don't you just love the dryer? Are you making a Booga Bag?

I cast on a pair of socks in Mountain Colors Bearfoot. The color is Ruby River. My goodness, this may possibly be the softest sock yarn in the universe (besides cashmere, which to me is way too pricy for socks.) Subsequently, I've been window shopping for more barefoot.

Also, I picked up some knitpicks bare to die. Entirely your fault.

What do you think about a spring trip to Maryland? May. First Week. Sheep Country.

Yes I'm making that bag but somewhat different. A little larger and with some twists, stay tuned.
Yes to Maryland if they have an airport, I don't drive that far any more but I have enough Airmiles to fly there..

I think the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival is near Baltimore. Lots of choices for flying.

I've never been to Baltimore but I'm sure it'll be fun.
