Just a post to let you know I’m still alive. I’m buried under mounds (virtual, that is) of work, and my knitting is taking a big back seat so there isn’t much progress. But here’s a finished sockapalooza sock and proof that I’ve started another!
Thank god my pal likes ‘em on the shorter side. And last night I cast on and began one of the Blue Moon socks for myself but alas, I made it too big. That baby is going to be started over.
The other thing I’ve been working on in the last week or so is my Clapotis. I’m finally up to the dropping stitches part.
When I first started this, I was thinking the very fine lace weight of Helen’s Lace, even doubled, might have been a mistake. But now that I’ve gotten this far, I love it. It’s certainly going to be smaller and much airier than the other Clapotis I’ve seen, but the fabric is so soft and silky and lovely, that I just can’t wait to wear it on a sunny Spring day, brunching outdoors. I’ll have time in my life for brunch one of these days, won’t I?
