Sshh..don't tell anyone. It'll be our secret. I'm thinking about leaving the crochet mid- croche and moving on to a bit of knitting. The Granny Square enlargement project continues, but it's taking its time and refusing to finish, even though I worked hard on it this week and last. I need a diversion; and oh, I have an itch to slip a stitch or two and try my hand at something for my feet. Socks!
It's that self striping wool. Ever since I knitted the baby blankets last summer, I've been in its thrall. Have you ever seen anything more trickily perfect than self patterning wool? I'd like a ball (or two) in every pattern ever invented, please, and soon.
But for now I'm telling myself that socks would be useful: a good thing to understand how to do. And when the creative urge is upon me, it would be just plain (or purl?) wrong to ignore it. I will learn how to make socks, with the very much appreciated help of one of the best knitters I know, Lea over at Freeze Frame. Thanks Lea!
So, if I knit now, I'll be stepping away from the crochet. It was quite a weekend of crochet. And confectionery ( we posted a box of Easter treats to some friends in California). And contact lenses (sorry, I seem to have let you inherit my bad eyes). And concert recovering (after a stormin' Easter school show on Thursday night). And clapping and cheering (Ireland won the Six Nations). And cake. Of course cake: we found a book we've been meaning to try. .
I expect there'll be more cake this week. Let's hope so..
Last week Ladkyis, Eileen T, Helena, Ruth, Rinda, Jane, Abi, Deb, Miriam, Alison, Barbara and KarmaCraft all gave us a Monday wave. Go on, give 'em a wave back. Or do a Monday of your own? We always happy to cheer you on at the start of the week. Have a good one!
