The sun came out today.
Now, that doesn't mean it is WARM.
But, it was sun and it was very much appreciated and enjoyed.
I found a sunny spot at Starbucks and re-cast on for Catherine socks.
Vera and I had planned on doing the Brookline Socks. It's a great pattern, but it did not look good with this slightly "fuzzy" yarn. Instead of the purl "knots" looking clean and crisp, they just looked like a patch of knitting mistakes.
After a few text messages between us last night, Vera and I decided we will do Sunday Swing as our knit-along instead. We aren't going to start until Feb. 2. So, if you'd like to join us, you have plenty of time to think about what yarn you would like to use.
In the meantime ..... I'll be working on Catherine.
That pattern can handle yarn with good definition, but just a little bit of fuzz.
Of course, the scrappy blankets have been getting their fair share of love too.
The smaller of my blankets got the blue spotty patch
and the chartreuse patch today.
One more patch will square things up again at 48 patches completed.
Things are looking very knitty around here these days.
