The long-awaited range hood was to be installed. But he called. He won’t be able to make it until next Tuesday. Argh! All that rearranging for nothing. I even cleaned the toilet. I’ve been grumpy all week. It’s to be expected.
When I was in Bethany, I bought two skeins of Bombay by Katia. I’ve been wanting to make my Girlie Summer Socks again. The pair I have have been through the washer and dryer and still look and feel great. I was very happy to find two colorways that I liked.
With the second pair, I went with a ruffle. I got out Lucy Neatby’s little sock book, Cool Socks, Warm Feet, and found just what I wanted. Using a little math, I figured I needed to cast on two and one half times as many stitches. I won’t tell you the rest. That would be unfair to Lucy. And I really like her.
I started another pair last night using the Panda Silk I bought at MD Sheep and Wool. I am trying a new design of my own. If I am happy with them, I’ll have a new pattern for you to try.
