Joining Kat & the Unravelers to share what I'm knitting and reading.
There's another FO... I think that's the opposite of "unraveled"!
- Ravelry Project Page: Rye Socks for Ginny
- Pattern: Rye by tincanknits
- Yarn: Make.Do Realize Worsted
- Needles: US 3 & 5 DPNs
- Start to Finish: March 11 - April 16, 2019
I might have enough yarn to squeak out a baby-sized pair of these! The worse thing that could happen is that the toes are knit in purple or something. I'm going to try a different cast-on, suggested by Kat™, and forego the smaller needle. (I really don't mind the cuff, though.)
Ginny tried them on last night -- including the one that needed a kitchenered toe and still had needles in. She was so happy and excited, "Are they done yet?" I almost sewed it up right then, but the reality of kitchenering a toe in the middle of a 3-kid whirlwind kicked in and I resisted the urge.
Instead we spent some time outside, had hot dogs, decorated a cake (sort of Jackson Pollock style), and then sang Happy Birthday and blew out candles when Ali & Rod returned from their birthday date.

I just love Ginny in that video! And Jün with his sweet "mistakes." Haha.
I'll be casting on today, and am hoping to have the baby pair done by May 5th to show as a sample. I/Make.Do have been invited to do a pop-up show at my new LYS, Casting On, on the Sunday of the local Spring Fiber Frolic (yarn crawl)! I'm so excited! And looking forward to spending some time in the dye studio over the next couple of weeks!
Same. Same. (Too bad I'm such a slow reader.)
