I am ready to turn the heel on Nutkin #2. I really just like typing the word "Nutkin".
I frogged the Hareton sock. The fabric was just too dense. Instead I cast on the Drunken Bee. Notice I am knitting the foot of the sock in stockinette. The pattern, while adorable, was quite bulky for the foot of the sock, although I loved the heel flap. The more solid yarn the author used shows the pattern much better.
Also? I am weak.
I was out in Maple Grove having lunch with my sis and my mom to celebrate mom's 70th birthday. I'd never been to Amazing Threads, and my sister showed me the way, so I went. (The staff were very nice, and after inquiring if I needed help once or twice, left me to my own devices.) This bag is going to be Mr. Greenjeans. Which I will cast on soon, along with half a dozen pair of socks. Really.
Also? Puck's LAX team marched to another 12-0 victory last night. Woot! If we ever get a game day not drenched with rain, I will take some pictures of these guys playing. They are a riot to watch.
What yarn is in that bag??
My answer was usually "only the good stuff!"
So - what'd ya get???
Looks like Dream in Color in the bag. Enjoy making Mr. Greenjeans!!
Good that you got to that MG yarn shop. They have quite a lot of nice yarn in a small apace! And they are very pleasant and helpful, too.
Nutkins are cute! And so close to being done. But Drunken Bee is almost as fun to say/type. Knit?
