Whew! What a month!

For those of you who don't know, in the past month, I have been out of town for three of the four weekends. I have also had the final weekend taken with out-of-town guests, and two other mid-week guests. Between being in New York, Ann Arbor, Washington, D.C. and Valley City, North Dakota, I have had little time to breathe, let alone knit.

Not to say that I haven't been knitting. Over the past weekend, on my trip to North Dakota, I FINISHED MY FIRST EVER FUNCTIONAL SOCK. I won't say it’s the highest quality thing in the world, but it’s good enough that I will wear it. Pictures soon. And a matching sock soon as well. I have a feeling this summer will be sock-tastic. Partially because I think that's all my handspun yarn will be good for, for the most part.

In other news, I purchased the yarn to construct my fall sweater. It is going to be brown and green. Why, you ask? Do these colors even match, you ask?


And that's just how I like it.

I'm also having some fun knitting up a reverse-stockinette ribbed striped thingy (scarf) with my left-over yarn. We'll see if anything presentable comes out of it, but in any case, it’s going to be strange. I used up the last of my acrylic yarn in there, so blocking's a bit out of the question anyway.

I'm glad things have settled down a bit.

Haha, you've joined the unholy alliance of sock knitters. They do become addictive quickly, you'll see.

I think brown and green go together quite well, in a very nature-y tree like way.

See you tonight!
