Comment Catch Up
I was asked questions in the comments about a few things, so I thought I would use this time to catch up.
Melissa asked about the progress on my Banana Cabana socks. Last night was an insomnia night, and I worked on them for a while. Here's how they look as of today, Melissa! Get yourself some Cider Moon yarn, girl!
Vera is keeping track of some of the bloggers for Summer of Socks and asked where I was starting, since I posted a pic of patterns and yarn. I'm starting with Thuja, a pattern from Knitty. Here's a photo of my start, along with my Log Cabin in progress. Sock is knit with Artyarns Supermerino in an almost-solid teal color. Size 4 needles.
Beth was thoughtful enough to ask me about the BSJ in progress. I am 50 rows into the jacket so far. Not quite halfway?? Why am I having to think so much on what everyone says is so simple?? I will have to sit down and really concentrate.
Mayhem and I went to the zoo today after spending the morning swimming. Our zoo has THREE baby polar bears! Only four were born in all of North America last year. Seeing the kids pressed to the glass was nearly as much fun as watching the bear.
I am truly enjoying summer! I also brainstormed with Becky about what to do with this:
That's the silk and cashmere yarn that Buddy B chose for me last summer in Scotland. (In Di Gilpin's shop, no less!) I think we have a plan. You have to wait for it, though. There are still a few details to double check and work out. I can tell you that it's NOT socks!
See, B? I told you I would knit with it when I found the right way to use it. ;-)
