Pattern and Source: Blueberry Waffle Socks
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, “Yellowstone” colorway
Needles: 2.25 and 2.75 mm DPN’s
Modifications: I used a K1P1 rib for the cuff, and I must have cast on fewer stitches, because these are small person’s socks. It’s been a long time, and I didn’t keep proper records, apparently.
I made these a while back — 2003, maybe? They just now fit this R, and I can’t wait to give them to her!
Pattern: Basic stockinette sock using Ann Budd’s formula, K2P2 ribbing
Yarn: Socks That Rock, “Moss Agate” colorway
Needles: 2.25 mm DPN’s
Needless to say, I think these socks are very cool!
I have some nice small knitting projects going on, and many more in the pipeline. After I finish the might-be-my-sister’s Clapotis, I’ve got some ideas about a shawl using the 800 yards of Blue Moon Seduction (50% merino, 50% tencel) that I got at Rhinebeck. The color is called “Red Oak.” I want to make a “Rabbit-Proof Scarf” from the Morehouse Farm book, and a “Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono” from the Mason-Dixon book (my niece L is going to have a baby in a few months). There are always socks, too. I’m a few inches away from finishing my Rockin’ Sock Club socks, and I’m on the second sock of my March Project Spectrum pair, so it’s safe to start thinking about what comes next. I think I hear one of my skeins of Fleece Artist calling to me…
Inspiration. This is a link to Teyani’s blog; her wonderful April 11 post begins like this:
to animate the mind or emotions
to elicit, create
to affect, guide or arouse by divine influence
to communicate with divine influence
to breathe life into
…from the latin root spiritus, spirare… breath of God.
It’s the right time for me to let inspiration guide me along my path. I want to feel settled and open, the way I feel today. I know it doesn’t always last, but it will always return.
