I’ve ripped my house apart. Every inch and corner. And some parts twice. But I still can’t find it. I have been searching for a specific pattern booklet. Specifically The Fancy Feet Ankle Kit. I have the yarn…..just not the patterns. And I’m starting some socks for some girls and I really wanted to use one of the patterns. Well, yesterday I finally gave up. Hopefully St. Anthony will make it reappear when I’m no longer looking. So I cast on different socks….Lacy Summer Footlets from the Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders Book. At least I’m glad to be using another pattern I already own, and one I had actually added to my queue. Can we say….another pattern crossed off the Knit My Queue page!! So thats what you see here in the lower right hand corner. Some small footlets (just cast-on) getting knit with circulars 2-at-a-time.
I also have a finished sock!! Yay! My last pair took me about 4 months! This sock was done in less than two weeks. I’m quite a happy girl about that. I also have made some progress on my Lettuce sweater. I’m about to join the front. And I have to wind another skein of the yarn before I can continue. I’ve made just a bit of progress on my Brandywine shawl. I really like the pattern.
I’m still reading The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. I have to say that it’s kind of a slow start. I also don’t read like I used to. I would stay up in bed for hours. Now I feel so tired I don’t even read a chapter before I start reading nonsense words. I’m going to try to make myself read at other times of the day now (and maybe even put down the knitting every now and then!!).
I’ve made it to my second half of my Knit Girllls Tempted Fiber. I’m very pleased with the first half. I’m trying something different with the second half. Then I will ply the two together. I personally don’t know how it will look and I don’t really care! I’m really just trying to do different things to get used to the spinning and knowing what kind of options I have.
