So...I started another pair of socks. These are from a free pattern from Wendy Johnson, whose toe-up socks are so fine. She designed the Nanner socks. These are called Sprucey Lucy -- Lucy being her cat. I'm doing these in a spruce-y sort of color, too.
The yarn is Black Bunny's 50 percent merino, 50 percent bamboo. It's a beautiful color and feels good to knit but is a little split-y. I've started the socks in the car this morning, did the first repeat of lace at lunch and the second repeat in the car coming home this afternoon. Chugging along.
And here are the yarns I've gotten recently.
Woolgirl had a sale this last weekend and I scored some Madelinetosh. I love me some Madelinetosh.
This one is called Sweetpea.
This one is called Home. And look, some helpful feet have shown up!
This one is called Cobbler. Yum.
I also got some Malabrigo sock in a gorgeous blackberry sort of purple. I've not tried the Malabrigo yet, though I keep hearing good things about it...so I thought I owed it to myself to try it.
Then The Loopy Ewe had a sneak-up on Monday (a sneak-up is when they post all the new stuff for the week...and the good things go fast) and I managed to grab two skeins of Numma Numma Toasty sock yarn.
The colors are Blue Cheese (in the back, of course) and Strawberry Jam. I made Beth's socks out of Numma Numma Toasty in the Brunch with Beth colorway and it is wonderful yarn to work with.
Look at the helpful cat!
I'm beat and am so glad tomorrow's Friday. It's been a long week. The hearing (the second one we've had in the past two months) is next Tuesday and I think we are just about done with the prep work. Whew. At least this one hasn't involved any late nights....well, one. Soon over though. And the next hearing is being handled by another branch so thank heavens for that!
