We've actually had a few small bursts of snow over the past few days - only about 4" total, but enough to make everything pretty and white again. (grass was starting to show through!) Hubby and I took the boys over to the Dam to have a good romp in the snow and burn off some energy.
The good vibes for the day continued when I got home and started a new sock. Using the purple yarn from Aldebaran, I cast on for the Child's First Socks from the ever inspiring Knitting Vintage Socks. I had to add in one pattern repeat as it is sized for a much smaller foot. So far, so good.
here. Now, I have pretty charts to work from.
The mail yielded a great surprise from none other than Sachi! She had mentioned on her blog a while back that she had chapter excerpts from The Friday Night Knitting Club if anyone wanted a preview. Always up for a new book, I was in. When my envelope arrived yesterday, it had so much more than just the excerpts!
Lady Eleanor's I have been tempted to seek some out. Not sure what to do with the two skeins - for now they will marinate in the stash....Thanks so much Sachi!!!
