Still Knitting Along
-Doris Langley More, Pleasures
And this week, we have a new and exciting knit along to add to the list - check the bottom! With Doris Langley More (British socialite, early 20th c.), I believe that certain things should be hot enough to grab your attention, and knitalongs fall into that category for me. I love seeing all the Project Spectrum stuff around blogland (and everything I'm currently knitting is either red or pink), but color isn't my game, so to speak, so I'm sitting that one out.
And with that editorial comment, here's the weekly-ish knitalong update:
I have some new stash projects this week - my Branching Out for Purls of Love and some hats you'll see tomorrow. I'm determined that my stash will at least LOOK smaller by the end of these three months of not buying yarn. . . although I love Lynda's suggestion that if we want new stash without buying new yarn, maybe we should lay down a nice blanket in front of the fire, open a good bottle of wine, and look for interesting merino-silk or mohair-cotton blended offspring.
Count Your Socks
Add one more to my tally! I finished my 92nd pair of socks last week, but now that they've reached their destination I can blog about them. For now, you can see them at Susan's blog. I'll do an FO post this week.
Knit the Classics
Reading: Yann Martel's Life of Pi. This may come to Europe with me next week, because I don't think it's happening before then. Or maybe I should skip ahead to Moll Flanders for April? With so much history reading (3+ books a week), I'm clearly having trouble keeping up with this knitalong at the moment.
Knitting: I'll come up with a project when I start reading.
I changed my pattern to the Chalet Socks from Folk Socks. I even have a photo, just for Stephanie, who really really wants a pair of her own. That would be sock one on your right. Since then, I've actually turned the heel, so it's progressing. No hurry; I have until May.
Sock Yarn Addicts Club
Here's my newest knitalong. So new it doesn't even start until April 1st. It's a support group of sorts for those of us with a little, er, problem with sock yarn. I've heard rumors that some of us (not naming any names, of course) have enough sock yarn to knit more than 30 pairs of socks. Or maybe have 6 socks on the needles simultaneously. I, um, er, don't know anyone like that. She'd be really weird, wouldn't she? The best part is that I'm going to be in the mecca of all sock yarn - Germany - the last week of March. Is it wrong to stock up on more sock yarn before starting a sock yarn reduction project?
