The Lost Month

I have spent the last month in a crazy place.  Like an alternate spot in the Universe where nothing is quite the way it should be.  Everyone is home now (including College Boy), Vancouver is still in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but not everything can be as it should be, right?

I have several completed projects, and two that are nearly there.  The last couple days of April will be devoted to completion and showing off!

Cachoeira by Kristi Geraci 

Pattern: Cachoeira by Kristi Geraci   Yarn:  Fall Creek Fibers Gold Mill Sock  Color:  Red/Purple - Sept 10 Sock Club Shipment  Needles:  US 1 - 2.25 mm  Started:  March 10, 2011  Completed: April 9, 2011 Note:  This sock yarn club was discontinued nearly as soon as I joined it.  I am someone who does not mind, even enjoys, the pooling of hand-dyed sock yarn so I was not disappointed with this pair of socks.  The pattern is mostly ktbl knit stitches (twisted knits) and purls - so definitely one of the slowest patterns I have ever worked on.  I think the end result is quite lovely, though I do not knit with yarn this dark very often, it was a challenge in the evenings.

In the meantime, Dr. Who has started up again - only twelve episodes this year - so must enjoy them all!

I hope things have settled down and life goes more normally!

Those socks are absolutely stunning. :)
Love the socks!
I'm fairly certain that parenting teens places moms in crazy land... doesn't matter how good/bad/normal/abnormal/busy/lazy the kids are - the moms get crazy busy.
Glad things have settled down a bit for you. I love these socks. I think the pooling suites the pattern and color here. Kind of like a "tempest" sock.
