A few weeks ago, on a trip to Jasper, I decided to cast on for a pair of sideways knit socks in one of my favorite colorways of Lala’s Knits yarn, “Into Thin Air”. The pattern itself wasn’t too difficult, but in the end it just doesn’t fit the way I would like for it to fit. So I decided for the second sock, I’d just knit it plain, toe up stockingette, to see how the color played out differently. I think it gives it a really cool effect!
Project info and notes are here, along with more pictures if you’re interested.
Next on the needles are the Vesper knee highs I talked about in Episode 1 of the videocast. I cast on the toe last night in some DIC smooshy I had leftover from who knows what – it’s a dark purpley-brown that matches one of the color stripes in the vesper that I’m going to use for the leg. Look – its so tiny and cute!
We also got out into the yard this weekend to clean up/prune some bushes, and down at the lake we ran into mama goose, keeping her eggs warm by the lake. The geese always nest there for some reason:
You know what that means – soon we will have baby geese! Adorable, whistling baby geese! This year I am going to try to get a video of them when they’re still babies – they make an adorable whistle-y sound when they’re still young and haven’t figured out how to honk yet. Hope to share that with you guys soon!
On another note, I want to thank everyone who has sent emails, plurks, PM’s on rav, comments on Facebook, etc regarding the videocast. We are thrilled that you guys liked it and already plotting what to chat about on the next one. Thank you for all the support!
