Yarn Along 2016.21: Tonight, Maybe

Joining with Ginny for the Yarn Along on a pseudo-summer Wednesday.  Last week we were just pulling out of a cool, wet, and very chilly spell.  Today, it could be summer: blue sky with big puffy white clouds, nice breeze dancing through the leaves on the trees, temperature all ready to 80 degrees before noon. . .  Except, being as I am a stickler, I know it is not summer, it's barely late spring.  No matter what the media says, summer will not be here until the equinox in June.  The weather has decided to finally be nice and warm, but it will be spring for nearly another month.

Meanwhile. . . I have spent very little time knitting in the past week.  That's what happens when I don't sit down until around nine p.m.--very little knitting takes place.

And so, I have not quite finished the second sock of the pair of Hermoine's Everyday Socks I have been knitting for my mom.  I will tonight.  Maybe.  I only have one more pattern repeat to do on the foot, a measly four rows, and then I will be to the toe.  And toes always go so fast.  It's nearly impossible to put down an unfinished sock once you reach the toe decreases.  So I'm pretty sure I will finish the sock tonight.

And then what?  I haven't decided what to cast on next. There are a few possibilities, depending on if I want to give knitted gifts for a few upcoming birthdays in early July.  But for both of those special days, I all ready have a sewn gift planned.  Oh, decisions, decisions.  ;0)

I've actually been reading a book this week; I used to read so much it wasn't uncommon to go through a novel every two days, but it seems like this year I'm barely getting through one a month. My current read is Hannah's Choice by Jan Drexler, a historical Amish fiction.  I have to confess, at first I wasn't sure I was going to read the whole book.  I was having trouble getting into the characters and the storyline for the first several chapters.  But it's not that bad, I kept at it and have turned the corner into "I can't wait to read what happens next" mode.

  1. I have made a pair of socks in that exact yarn. Your mother should be very pleased with these hand knitted socks from you.
