A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Knit and Breathe

We’ve had the rain and snow. By the time the teen’s finished with her driver’s permit test this afternoon, I was too wasted to go to the LQS for quilter’s social weekly. Instead, I unraveled one-third of Emiily Shmemily Shawl finished up a couple of weeks ago.
Emiily Shmemily Shawl Unraveled to add gartered lace
There should be some gartered lace in between stockinette lace work. It shouldn’t take long to re-knit/fix the shawlette…mindless knit for another busy Friday (4H Cooking, 4H Sewing, DMV…)

Need to wet-blocking the yarn first…to avoid undesirable gauge discrepancy with rest of the shaw
Today, I decided to play with next shop sample on my plate. Everyone has that one skein of yarn in their stash that refuses to behave. Look no more…

Potomac is a beauty. Another beautiful hand-painted variegated yarn by Blue Moon Sock That Rocks Medium Weight

perfect for Pinata Socks.

The stripes are very pronounced on the side-to-side cuffs.

It’s a little hard to tell with how bright those lovely colors are. The wide ribs, with all-purl rows in the body of the socks, jumbled up the colors and put that undesirable pooling and flashing yarn in its proper place.

I loved watching these socks being born and am honored that Shannon and Emily asked me to knit up a sample. They fit well so far and will provide smiles when someone does wear them instead of leaving on a mannequin.

This gives me another opportunity to accomplish more than just a new pair of socks…I got to play with a wonderful yarn.

In addition to crazy amounts of studying, I’ve also been doodling. It’s nice and relaxing, a good way for my brain to rest.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. That looks like a very good sock pattern, ideal for yarns like that one. Might also be good for Meg's striping yarns.
