Joining Kat & the Unravelers today, sharing what I'm knitting and reading.
There's an FO... it's for Christmas, even!
- Ravelry Project Page: Waving Rib Worsted Cuff-Down Socks
- Pattern: Cuff-Down Socks by Wendy Bernard
- Yarn: Make.Do Realize Worsted
- Needles: US 6 DPNs
- Start to Finish: July 4 - August 5, 2019
These originally started as another pair of Tin Can's Rye Socks, but I discovered that I was knitting an adult/toddler mash-up using two sets of numbers... not at all what I was going for!
Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 11 - Wanderlust had recently been published, and I decided it was time to try something a little different. The patterns in Wanderlust are all written for fingering/sock yarn and I still wanted to use worsted, so I adjusted needle size, numbers, and the panel pattern repeat accordingly.
These were my first short-row heels, too, and I like them!
Since I was going up north for a couple of days -- driving up on Saturday and back on Monday, 4.5+ hours each way -- I brought four knitting projects. Haha. (I'm not kidding.) I pulled my knitting out only twice -- socks both times -- on Sunday night and Monday morning when it was just my cousin Gail and I, and I knit the entire foot while we chatted.
In the elements. I forgot how pine-y it smells up there.
And, yes, I'm happy that I went. I took a 20-minute car nap on the way up, and wove in and out of downpours all the way home, but in between we had a great time. Good company, good food, boating, lots of yapping.
Since I last checked in...
The Summer Walkers is still on my nightstand.
I finished my second listen of Lincoln in the Bardo, and enjoyed it just as much if not more the second time around.
On my long drive last weekend, I listened to most of Daughters of the Lake by Wendy Webb. I'm less than an hour from finishing and there are definitely some things I like/relate to in the story, but there are also some things that I'm not crazy about (not quite eye-rolling, but close...)
