Soooo happy!!! I have been waiting to see the Robins return, and I saw my first Robin today!! Welcome Spring!!! Sorry the color in the picture is not very good :(.
I follow a blog Muddling Through Life and she is having a KAL, (knit-a-long for my non knitting friends.) It looks so pretty, so I dug out some very deep (meaning I’ve had it a very long time :P) stash. The above picture shows the yarn, it is a synthetic yarn unfortunately, but it is a fingering weight. It is some my mom sent me from South Korea when she was working for the Air Force as a non military personnel civil Service employee, years ago. It is a large skein at 8 oz, it is a beautiful light lavender even tho it shows up like a grey in the picture. I did have to go buy some new needles because I didn’t have any 40″ needles. I now have a pair of ChiaoGoo size 7 red lace circulars. 🙂 The pattern calls for a size 8 but I have to go down a size to get gauge because I am a little bit of a loose knitter. I wanted some ChiaoGoo bamboo needles (my needles of choice) but they were out and I wanted to get this started so I settled for the stainless steel.
I have also started the Welcome New Born Socks , from a previous post, now using the new sock weight yarn (rather than the baby weight) and they are definitely smaller :). I’ll post a picture of my progress in a couple of days and we should see the answer to my one of my questions about how much of the repeatable colors you can get in a little sock :P.
