Speaking of "S", I have sock progress. This is the Boyfriend Sock in Trekking. I really, REALLY like both the yarn and how the sock is coming out (apologies for the light quality but it's been raining since Saturday evening)!! I did NOT like the magic-8 cast on. I couldn't figure out how to 'tighten' the stitches after knitting a few rows (and they REALLY needed to be tightened!). I should rephrase that to say I couldn't figure out to do with the extra slack after I tightened the stitches. There was a LOT! Maybe I waited too long and you should be able to work it through into the working yarn, but I couldn't, so I just wove in a loop that was probably close to two inches! I think for sock 2 I'm going to do the magic 8 on smaller needles so that some of the slack will get taken up knitting onto the right size needles.
In other sock news, I got my first WoolGirl sock club shipment last week. It is AWESOME! The yarn is from Mama Llama and is inspired by a Georgia O'Keefe painting. The extras included notecards with photos of the yarn and the knitted sock, pattern for the yarn, project bag, copper wire and purple bead stitch marker and a woolgirl pen! I'm SO glad I joined the club! This yarn isn't something I'd ordinarly choose for myself (Purple will always lose to reds or browns or greens) but I'm excited to get it OTN. . . as soon as I get some other stuff OFF the needles!
Finally, I sort of dropped out of Project 365. . . I was taking pictures of the pups, but they really just weren't all that interesting after a few, and I didn't want to switch to random subjects. While I was blogging this, though, I noticed Zosia lounging and couldn't resist.
(It's been a rough couple days for puppies. ..lots of rain = no outside play!)
