I've been wondering if knit blogging is decreasing in popularity. It sure seems like it. This morning I read an article from a couple of years ago. One thing from the article that stuck with me is that people often post about a finished project but not the process. Now, I don't know that anyone wants to read about my knitting process :) but I thought it might be fun to see what today was like for me. There is knitting involved so it can't be that boring, right?
Last night I realized I hadn't cast on the right number of stitches for today's LYS KAL so as soon I got up I finagled the increases to get the right number of stitches. Knowing the stitches aren't quite right bothers me a bit but not enough to rip it out and start over.
Then I did a little cleaning so one of Emma's friends could come over. Her friend's mom and I went to lunch at another friend's house to discuss the drama program. The lunch was fabulous! (In fact, I think I used that word several times while we were eating.) We had barbecued beef sandwiches, potato salad made with red potatoes and bacon, make-your-own salads with wonderful toppings, and a terrific, still hot from the oven peach cobbler with homemade whipped cream. Wow! I'd like to eat lunch there every day!!!
After that I went to my LYS for the beginning of their latest KAL. Since I had already cast on and worked a few repeats I already have something to show. Wanna see?
The yarn is Malabrigo Sock in the Primavera colorway. The pattern is Wendy Johnson's Double Eyelet Rib sock. I really like how the yarn looks in stockinette better than in the eyelet rib pattern but I'm still happy with it. The color changes are just a little too contrasting for me. Mary is using a Pagewood Farm yarn - I think it may be Fruit Freeze. Anyway...the subtle color differences in her yarn will really look nice in the socks.
Then I played with the dog and now it's back to cleaning. We're having a 16th birthday party for Emma this weekend. It's a pool party but rain is forecasted so that means the house needs to be ready as a backup plan. Here's the first thing I'll tackle...
Most of my yarn is ready to go back into my room after going through the freeze-wait-freeze process. Guess I'd better get to it. I hope you've all had a fabulous Friday and are looking forward to a great weekend!
