My May Day Swap socks are done! Except the grafting. The yarn is BMFA Sapphire in Heavyweight. Perfect Spring morning socks, when there is still a bit of a chill in the air. or if you live here, great for when it is dumping snow in late April. Here is hoping my pal will like these and that they fit! There was much gnashing of teeth and ripping back in terms of fit.
Each time I knit a pair of socks, I find that I internalize another piece of the sock puzzle which is completely invigorating. One of the actions which I find truly energizing(regardless of the item) is ripping out and reknitting it. Which not only did I have to do that several times on the above socks but on these too. Must finish giant socks!
Camp was wonderful. It was much harder this year to be away from the boys, though we all have pulled through in fine form. I find that I want to tell you more about camp and as it is incredibly experiential for me, this is proving difficult. Great fun is apt but not terribly descriptive. It was great fun all the same.
Duncan is home with a fever and whine today, so lots of knitting whilst wiping of a little nose (not with the knitting!) and giving comfort.
In the hold on to your horses department:
My Mom was tickled that her photo popped up on the blog AND she gave me permission to tell her age. It is going to be a contest! Guess my mom’s age, on the nose- it is a milestone birthday- and you will receive 1 skein of Blue Moon Knitters Without Borders in Lightweight (not yet available on their site), plus one more skein of Blue Moon Yarn (weight & color tbd by winner’s preference) and other various goodies. Leave a comment by Noon, PST Friday May 2. And if you know shh…..Also, if there is more than one correct guess, we will do the name in the hat thing.
One guess per customer.Good luck!
Love y’all to bits!
