sign

Every day I look at this sign and laugh. I did not alter it at all. If, by chance, you wanted “Sumer tutoring” for your 4-7 year old, I don’t know how you would get it as there is no phone number or other contact info.

The stitching is coming along, but I don’t think I will get it finished by next Sunday, when I wanted it ready. Oh well, I will keep plugging away at it and it will get done eventually, right? I worked on it out on the porch today – natural light makes a huge difference in how well I can see it, I found. Even then, it goes slowly.

Then there are socks (number 20 since I started the Socks With Sarah Knit along) – they continue to grow on my needles. This yarn is from Cloudlover, “Mag Mell” is the colorway, and I love it. I wasn’t sure though, that it went well with this pattern, which has lots of texture. But seeing the photos, I have decided I do like it, and will keep going. I think when it is on my foot and the ribbing pulls out a bit, it will look even better. I’ll get photos when I finish, no worries. πŸ™‚

I am also working on this shawl – I just love how the blues are looking on this – while it is hard to see any progress simply by looking at the photos I take, I feel better when I am counting the points – working on number 24 now. Not sure that I will get to the 42 the pattern calls for, I’ll just keep going until the ball is done. It is a Madeline Tosh, Tosh Light, in Betty Draper’s Blues. So soft and lovely. It is a single ply yarn, all wool, not as dense as the sock yarn. It is making lovely fabric.

That’s it – the photos I couldn’t load to the last post worked fine now. Thanks, WordPress!

  1. The cross stitch is really coming along. I love the design and soft colors. What a beautiful gift it will make. The socks look great and the yarn looks like fun. I so desperately want to be knitting a shawl in my line up of things on the needles, but I can’t find the time right now to cast on another item. Oh that MadTosh blue is so pretty!

    1. Thanks – I think things are coming along, just maybe a little bit slower than I would like. The stitching will be surrounded by shells, so there i sstill lots to go before the thing is complete. πŸ™‚

      I love that sock yarn – it is thinner than the Tosh Sock I usually use, so the patterns take some adjusting, but the colors are amazing. I have one more skein from cloudlovers for socks, and two that might be shawls someday. πŸ™‚

      I also love the blue – might need more of that yarn, I have to say!

      If you want to watch some bright pretty shawls unfold, you could check out Mollie&claire – she is doing her Christmas knitting adn some folks are getting brightly colored shawls. πŸ™‚

      I hear you about wanting to make everything – that is why I have my rule about WIPS – I can’t start another one until I finish one. It keeps me moving forward. πŸ™‚

  2. Yay, for these fiber photos. That sign is dumb and dumber. That colorway for this twentieth pair of socks is like Minecraft. The shawl is looking great.
