Five whole days at the cabin with family and friends and I could not be bothered to lift my camera even one time. Seriously? Lame = me. Rest assured there was Sea-doo riding, paintball playing, late night poker, tubing behind the pontoon and much cooking and eating (Oh, and the boys blew up multitudes of exploding things.)
However, I have completed the second pair of socks for Summer of Socks '08.
Pattern: Twinkleberry by Beth LaPensee from Knitzi.com (I just noticed she has a new pattern up...) Yarn: Ruby Sapphire Yarns Ruby yarn in the Abby colorway Needles: Knitpicks Harmony DPN's in size 1 Started: July 1, 2008 Completed: July 6, 2008. Note: This yarn is soft and a little fuzzy, but these socks are going to be great and they are so very soft and scrunchy. The pattern was easy and so pretty (I think I'd pass on the short-row heel and come up with a heel flap next time.) I hope someone doesn't think I knit these too fast....I'd hate to come up under censure.
Puck has Lacrosse practice tonight, he's got to get ready for his traveling team's big tournament next weekend out in Amherst, Mass. Teen and I get to stay home and practice for the re-taking of the driver's license exam.
Those socks are cute. I have two new sock yarns. I need a pattern.
