Today I finished 1 side of the Gothic Spire socks that I’m knitting for my secret pal. It was a long road. But I’m pretty happy with it. Since my calves don’t fit in these socks, I had my neighbor Riki model them for me. The pattern isn’t that complicated, it’s just reeeeaaaallllly slow.
I needed a break before knitting the other side, so I cast on my 2nd My So Called Scarf using Wollmeise worsted weight yarn in Dani colorway (medium). It is fun to knit something that goes so fast! I decided to cast on 36 stitches (instead of 30) and this one is going to be a regular scarf length. Because I only had 1 skein of the Lorna’s Laces yarn, the other scarf ended up being a little short. Enough to use, of course, but usually you want it to be a little longer. I got 2 skeins so we’ll see how it goes.
I have been on a yarn buying binge. Yep. That’s all I gotta say. Blue Moon Fiber got in more mediumweight yarns and I didn’t go too crazy. I’ve been wanting to make one of those chevron scarves that everyone is making. And I also picked up the fair isle book that they publish. I can’t wait to get their yarns!!!
My downstream pal received her package and she loved it. It makes me so happy when someone really treasures the gift that you give them. I think I get more enjoyment out of hearing that someone really liked something I gave them, than me receiving something myself. Unless of course it’s Socks that Rock! Just kidding… I don’t know if I told you but she is also in Germany so I’m trying to make the packages as un-German as possible. And also I save a lot on shipping! DPD delivers to her overnight – that’s really good to know. I thought the package wasn’t going to make it until after her birthday (being the Easter holiday and all), but it arrived today!
