for the first time in over a year I had nothing, nada, zip! OTN. I went to work without my knitting. I felt venerable. What if I had to wait for something! I would not have anything to do while I waited. Wait, I don't have a doctors appointment, but my car could break down then what would I do! The day was busy at work. Got home and looked at my sock yarn. I selected my Dream in Color Smooshy in Spring Tickle. I started the k2p2 ribbing. Figured I'd settle on a pattern when I had that done. Here are my sock yarns
What pattern to choose? I am doing Show-off Stranded Socks. I started off using my size 1 addi. I cast on 72 stitches. Going Magic loop. When I get to the pattern I was having trouble PSSO. Gotta love these abbreviations. So I ripped out.
OK, I have now cast on 72 stitches on two size 2 susan bates. Working the rib back on.
I'm not loving this Smooshy. It is so much thicker than all the yarns I have been using for months. I keep knitting the rib. Too tired --I go to sleep early
We got out of work at 2:00. My BFF had brain surgery on Wednesday. I was going to the hospital to visit when her husband called to say they were releasing her. Meet them at the house. Get this, she was in intensive care Wednesday & Thursday. They were going to move her to her own room on Thursday. They did not have one so out she goes. She is doing very well. On her weekend in WVA, they own a place up there, she brought a skein of Handspun Leicester Longwool & Alpaca 4 oz. She was told it was enough for a pair of socks. I don't think so this is very scratchy so I don't even think it will make a good scarf. I think I am going to wash & condition it first. She will like what I make with it. Got home and once again, too tired. Watch some TV asleep by 8.Saturday--
This pattern is not working with this yarn
So I ripped it out.
I have started again. Will have enough to show tomorrow.
