Spring? (and What's on my Needles)
What? Is this an April Fool's joke? We have just returned from 10 days in Chicago where we tried desperately to keep warm and then woke up to this sight today back home here in Washington. Furthermore, it snowed a bit yesterday evening here, too, as we left for choir practice. Not funny! The calendar says it's spring. Hmmmmm....... Maybe the snow and cold followed us home?
While we were gone, we received word of the arrival of another great niece in our family, named Kaitlyn Frances. I hope to show you next week what I knitted for her as it's almost finished. This project on my needles is for a baby scheduled to arrive in August, and it looks like I'm going to have to put it aside for a bit because I just received an invitation to a baby shower for a choir friend and need to make a little something for that occasion.
I started out knitting these socks with the Simple Skyp sock pattern but the Skyp stitch didn't show up, so I ripped and am following the pattern minus the special stitch. The yarn is Lorna's Laces from May 2011 called "The White Witch's Lure". If anyone knows what that is, please enlighten me! I'm almost done with a pair of brown socks for DH and hope to show them next week also. When it's too cold to go outside, there's more time to knit and play with the grandkids. Right?
Check out what others have on their needles at Patchwork Times.
