So, you want to know what I am knittin? Right now I have two projects on the needles. One has been languishing on the needles for at least a year now. Bad Juju!

These are the Autumn in Oregon socks by Chrissy Gardiner. They are seriously cute, and I have a mere two repeats of the lace pattern to finish the toe of the second sock. So- what’s the problem? I suppose that I am sick of the charts. The sock has a leaf chart for the cuff, then a different lace pattern for the front and back of the sock. There are only 36 rows left to knit, so I guess I’ll have to pour myself a drink and dig in.

My other project is the Sonnet from Knitty. Love, love, love this pattern. It is cute, quick, and can be made up in a variety of yarns. I chose Peruvia in a purple heather. p2060343.JPG
I know, it is really not a color I have ever knit with; however, I was pretty limited in color choice at LYS. Red and gold were my other two choices and neither looks good on me. The only glitch was the pattern did not specify yardage, so I guessed 6 and had them hold 2 more for me. What you see in the pic has used 2 1/2 skeins. I am all the way around to the left front, so I think 6 will be more than enough. In case you’re wondering- it is wrinkled because my beloved cats like to nap on it!!!

  1. Nice projects! I’ll have to go look at that Sonnet… but it’s not like I don’t have enough patterns around here.

  3. Hey - welcome back! I love, love, love the socks, and the sweater’s neat, too! Glad to hear you’re “back in the saddle,” to use a Texas metaphor ;)
