It has been a sock filled weekend. Since work is finally slowing down, I can once again focus on fun projects and knittiness. Last year - I gave in to my urges and joined the Blue Moon Socks that Rock 2008 sock club. The first installment is due out this month and I can't wait. The release of the new blog for the sock club is only enhancing my antsiness. It is that excitement that I'm blaming my weakness on. I joined another sock club this weekend. The Hill Country Yarns softly shaded sock club - I thought it might be a good compliment to STR, plus it is really reasonable - $60 total for 6 months (3 shipments) which includes yarn and a pattern.
I have been making progress on my flickr socks - I really love working with the STR and the pattern is enjoyable. It is a bit slow as the constant SSKs seem to bother my left shoulder and elbow.
I also finished the F.Pea Baby sweater for my brother. I just need to weave in the ends. I don't think I'm going to add the button and icord closure - I kind of like it open. Any opinions?
It's a cool free pattern - I just love the color changes on the outside.
I've also made some headway on the bacardi cardigan over the last few weeks. I split off for the sleeves and started working up the left front. A few more rows to go before I start the shoulder shaping. RY Cashsoft is absolutely amazing!
Since I'm feeling human and creative again - I think I'm going to attempt to get my craft room back under control and work on a new quilt this weekend. I have tomorrow off for the holiday so it should be fun. Have a good weekend and happy football everyone!
