Still suffering from 2nd sock syndrome
It's been a while! Three months and I haven't picked up the needles in that entire time. I'm itching to pick them up again soon though--I'm just not excited about the socks for some reason.
Have you seen these books? I want them:
Traditional Fair Isle Knitting by Sheila McGregor has just what I want in fair isle patterns--I want to make myself a winter hat for next winter with hearts all around in pinks and mauves--I'm imagining it, I just need to get it on my needles.
Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel was kind of a surprise--I didn't think I'd like it from what I read about it, but I picked it up in the bookstore to browse and most of the beautiful patterns are simple and done in the round (which I love).
Maybe in June when we have our "Healthy Returns" come in work, I'll get my gift certificate for the bookstore and get at least one of these for free. . . .
I need to finish the socks though, otherwise I never will. It's raining today, maybe I'll give it a go. After those are done I really want to accomplish a couple of sweaters for C with the yarn I got a few months back at Knitting Pointers in Milford, MA; then of course my hat . . . . here we go again.
The kids gave me some really sweet Mother's Day gifts today that they made in school:
From C, a card with her little handprint and sweet smiling face:
