On to knitting......
I was able to finish my round 2 sock madness socks:
Then yesterday....the round 3 sock pattern was released. It is called Safe Harbor (pattern here)
Here is a picture of them (copyright © Amy Rapp):
Now....I want to do them.....but....I have SOOOOOO many socks I WANT/NEED to do. First there is the new yarn I just got....I want/need to make these:
Then there are the gryffindoor socks I need to make for Paige:
Then there is some new yarn I just got.....Darlene has a customer that sent her 2 skeins of Regia 4 ply self striping yarn and the colorway is of the German flag....when I mentioned this to my mom, she said "I may have to call Tante Mecki to get me some of that yarn so you can make me some of those." My mother has never really 'asked' for me to make her anything and if she said she is gonna call her sister for yarn like this, then I know she will love these socks....so I told her no need to call Tante Mecki....I will make her socks with this yarn! So again...another pair I need to make!
So yesterday I got yarn wound to start my Round 3 socks....I was thinking of using my Harry Potter Sirius's Gift colorway:
and then I busted out the Germany Flag yarn into two cakes to make matching socks and was gonna cast on......but.....some sort of wave of responsibility came over me.....and I told myself I need to finish my fingerless mitts before I allow myself to cast on more socks. I tried to push Ms. Responsibility to the backburner, but she was not budging......so I worked on my mitts and have not cast on new socks (yet):
I told myself that as soon as I finish these mitts, I can cast on the round 3 socks and maybe my moms socks....then I thought of maybe doing the round 3 socks with the Germany yarn......but I need to look through some projects and see if anyone else is using self striping yarn.....
Now onto some Yarn Diet Breaking.....my friend, Rosanna, was working on the Augusta Shawl on the cruise with Wolltraum gradient yarn and I loved it.....so I got myself 2 skeins of this yarn...Cinnamon Girl and a custom color of "50 Shades of Grey"......
I am using the Cinnamon Girl for the Augusta shawl...and I am thinking of a large Jacket/vest for the grey.
Since I was working on the Augusta Shawl and it is crochet.....I thought that I should also catch up my temperature blanket....it is almost 20" :) I am caught up all the way to the 21st of April!
Well, that is really all I have......I got my flavor of the month tea from plum deluxe...Orange Black Tea
and I leave you with this morning's sunrise view from my work....Have a great week!
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
