This post was supposed to be about my finished Heather sweater. Well, after spending all last night seaming it, I decided to give it another quick bath and as everyone in the Chicago-area knows, it's a tad bit humid right now so it's anyone's guess when it will be dry.
So, I will distract you with the lovely little notecard and stitchmarkers Kim sent. She has put out a request for sock yarn scraps so that she can knit a sock yarn log cabin blanket (crazy!). Well, as you may have noticed, I've knit a few socks and I almost always have scraps. In return for my bag of sock yarn scrap balls Kim sent me the cutest stitchmarkers (and a check to cover postage!). Thank you, Kim! I'll be sure to send all future sock yarn leftovers your way:)
I'll leave you with a picture of the not nearly finished Trekking XXL #71 socks. I spent so much time seaming that sweater last night, I didn't get a chance to knit at all! (Plus I played Ages of Empires II for a few hours -hehe).
These socks are going to be great when they are done, but I'm starting to doubt they ever will be. Not sure why they are taking so long. I really like the yarn, the color, and the pattern (6x2 rib). Oh well, I'm sure if I just spent an evening on them I would finish them in no time.
Look for the finished Heather posting this weekend!
