Small Progress Report
Last week was a busy one. The M.E. was on vacation and we spent the week having fun, without leaving town. No packing! No making arrangements! No unpacking! It was incredibly relaxing, even though only a modest amount of knitting happened.
I’m making slow progress on my October Sockamania sock. Yes, sock. This is still only the first one. I like it, but I’m just not working on it very fast. That might be because I’m more in the mood for this:
Totally Autumn, which is now exactly the size of the coffeetable downstairs. This is the happiest thing I’m knitting at the moment. The pattern is complex enough to be interesting, but easy enough that I can watch Torchwood and The Next Iron Chef and not get myself into trouble. No need for lifelines, panicking, or any other hoohah. This pattern just clicks along in a very charming and cooperative manner. (Note: Dr. Evil is not unhappy about Totally Autumn. He just wanted to be the star of the photo.)
In fact, I love it so much that it’s given me a taste for lace worked with chunky yarn and big needles. That could have something to do with the reason I was unable to resist three skeins of this when I stopped into Double Ewe Yarns (on an entirely legitimate errand!) the other day:
Blackberry Ridge Mer-Made, in Raspberry. The color’s deeper than it appears in the photograph, but I’m not messing with photography and color accuracy today–I haven’t even had breakfast yet. This yarn is gorgeous and soft and I think it will work very nicely for a big, lacy wrap of some sort. I may design this one myself…something’s cooking…
Oh, and just to make Dr. Evil happy, I took a picture of him, too.
