Happy Yarn Along Day! It is a gorgeous Wednesday here, bright blue sky full of sunshine, light breeze, and moderate temperature. My hayfield is being cut as I type this (which means some hot, sweaty, hours of bale stacking to be done on Friday afternoon. . .). It is a perfect June day.
I'm joining Ginny for the Yarn Along.
In the past week I finished (except for turning down the cuff and whip stitching it to make the picot edge, that is) the first of the pair of Dottie Socks II that I am making as part of DD1's birthday present. It is such a vibrant purple, and so soft to the touch that I think she is going to love it. And consequently wear these socks a lot. Which means I should probably order some more of this Knit Picks Comfy in shades of purple to make her more socks when these get worn out. :0)
Also in the past week, the current issue of Taproot magazine arrived in my mailbox. And guess what--it's purple too! All kinds of purple fun going on here lately. I've been reading it whenever I get a few minutes; looks like a great issue.
As you can see from the picture above, I've started on the second sock. I have about four more rows of 'leg' to go, then I will divide for the heel. So, maybe, if putting up hay as well as working in the garden (in addition to my regular jobs at the two horse farms I am working at) doesn't take up too much of my time in the next few days, I will be able to show you two finished socks next Wednesday. Complete with picot edges.
