Uninspired Friday Post

Nothing really to report here. I've made some progress on the Socks that Rock Philosopher's Stone sock. I really like the simple garter rib pattern (Sensational Knitted Socks book). I couldn't get the colors to really come out well in this photo. There's no pink. It's all navy, forest green, brown, and grey.

I've been in a bit of a blah mood lately. Not sure why, but I'm hoping the fact that I have a staff potluck at lunch today after which we are free to leave for the rest of the afternoon might brighten my mood. Yea! Afternoon off! Maybe, just maybe, I'll tackle the neck to Durrow. I still haven't heard back from the designer about the neck shaping directions so my plan is to simply knit the front the same as I did the back - genius! :) I'd heard online that a lot of people felt the neck came out too large anyway so this way it should create a higher crew neck. Wish me luck!

The scarf in the below post is incredible!! As if I don't have enough projects on the go!

Man, this new Blogger beta thing has been messing with my ability to comment! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your afternoon off! and I LOVE how the Interlocking Balloon scarf turned out! I know it's hard to make the same pattern twice but that one might really be worth having one for yourself!

The sock is looking really great. I need to try some STR. I keep seeing these beautiful socks knit from STR all over the blog-o-sphere.
