Knitting Continues

Since I had nearly a whole ball left after finishing Gretel, I decided that I needed to make a pair of Fetching.  You know…the ones that everyone has made.   I have to say – the more I work with this KnitPicks yarn – the more I’m liking it.  I can see a gorgeous, cozy sweater knitted up in this yarn.

I always have various socks in progress.  Eventually I get them to the point I need to work on them during a block of uninterrupted time.  Here we have some of my own hand-dyed, 2-at-a-time on one long circular.

I’m decreasing the gusset now and will be going up the leg soon.

  • The Fetchings will be cute and something like that might come in handy at Rhinebeck if the current weather is any indicator. Are those socks pink and turquoise? Really cute so far.

  • My friend is 95% done with a blanket she knit out of what I believe is the same City Tweed you have here –the vintage is right for this color that they don’t make any more. She is one skein short of finishing, and I was desperately hoping you might have some left, or that you might know where to find any more of this yarn that has been discontinued!

      City Tweed is so pretty, but every time I touch alpaca, I itch like a mad woman. No City Tweedy goodness for me!
