Round Two

Christmas 2008, Ann gifted me some hand-dyed yarn.  It is soft, beautiful… and languished in my stash.

Until yesterday.  Jessi’s latest Cotty sock made me itchy to cast on again.  I don’t know that I blogged about it, but I was really enjoying the Cotty pattern earlier this summer, until I found I couldn’t slip the sock over my heel.  Hem.  Luckily, I grabbed this yarn, the RIGHT sized needles (they were the problem before), and dropped them, along with the pattern, into a project bag almost as soon as I got home yesterday afternoon.

Then, I sat down to finish my sweater.  Then, the power went out.  Sweater will indeed be finished tonight, so maybe the FO report can happen on Monday.  In the meantime, I am off to buy Irishgirlieknits’ Sweet Baby Kate.   I have three pairs of baby socks to whip out in the next week or so… maybe.

What’s on your weekend agenda?

    My weekend – sewing educational event. Then catch up housework. more yoga practice. maybe some sewing. Hopefully no running to home improvements stores for ‘stuff.’ (but I have a feeling JB is going to want to spend time on Sunday looking at flooring – send a little prayer up that they’re closed, k?) g

    Camping in. Lancaster County, PA with the dogs..who normally go to their own camp (aka-kennel). Discovered that is the best $150 we pay for three days of doggy care. They are driving me crazy! So much for a relaxing wkend. Brought some yarn, but not sure I will get to knit. Good luck with yours.
