After a long weekend visiting our friends at Lehigh
, I had discovered that I had lots of work do to and little time to blog. Hence, my absence for the past week. Things are good though, I've actually been knitting and dyeing lots the past week (I sent out 18 skeins on Friday and 23 custom ordered skeins on Saturday).
First off, if any of you know me, you will know that I was fighting the Jaywalker craze for the past few months (love the pattern, but everyone was knitting it!). I crashed and burned the other day when I dug this self-striping Regia yarn out of my stash and had a sudden urge to knit with it. After seeing this colorway on Diana's
blog last spring, I had to have some. And, so it has sat so patiently in my bin.. until Tuesday night!
And look, I have half of the foot done! Unfortunately, I tried it on last night and it is super super tight around my ankle/heel. It took some coaxing to get it on, but I vow to keep these for myself. I know they will stretch out a bit over time, and so I keep knitting.
Oh, and yes, I did cut out the stripes from the heel :)
And in other news, I finished this super boring, but super soft scarf last week while on our trip! A friend of a friend wanted someone to knit her this, and so I agreed.Pattern:
