And onto the knitted goodness:
Well, I have safely returned from Ohio. There was a good time had by all. I saw lots of Alex's relatives, went on the tour of childhood in Ohio, and ate at Frisch's Big Boy (something I had never done until this weekend). It was good.
Then there was the knitting. I did get a lot of knitting done while in transit. Of course, I had too much yarn, but it is always better to be on the safe side with these things. Here is what was accomplished: Above is another mini-sock. This one is for Ryan. He wants a mini sock. He does not knit. With Ryan, one must not question these things. I just knit the sock.
Here we have Soleil: Still miles of stockinette. I thought I would have more done, but other things were being worked on. Like the Jayripplicious sock!
I am pleased with these. You may recall they are a pattern I invented using parts of Broadripple and Jaywalker. Result: A Jayripple-y sock.
Hmm, let's see. I received a bunch of yarn in the mail this week. It's all from the gift certificates I got for my birthday. First we have the goodies from The Loopy Ewe (thanks JC!):
We have some Louet Gems on the left (and I bought the pattern for Flicker by Cookie A.). On the right we have Claudia Handpainted Yarn in Purple Earth. Both are lovely!
Then there was the stuff from BMFA (thanks Alex!):
From left to right I have Rose Quartz, Lemon Grass, Cracked Canyon and Titania. I also got the pattern for Titania's Revenge. There is a great deal of sock yarn around here, to say the least!
And, now, onto what you all have been waiting for: THE FREE YARN!
