Happy Wednesday! The sun is brilliant this morning and it’s warming up nicely. Two more days until my Mom leaves the hospital and is able to go back to her apartment. And there’s been a bit of progress on the knitting.
Beginning in the front . . . The lace edge on Piper’s Journey is coming along slowly. It’s not a good take-along project so it hasn’t received too much attention. It’s hard to see since it’s bunched up on the needle, but the gradient colors are really lovely. The yarn is Wolle’s cotton in the Spanish moss colorway. I’m at the heel on the second Water Cycle Sock. Such a fun pattern.
And one Denim Vanilla Bean Sock (stripey sock in photo) is finished for my mom. The first sock went very quickly. But then . . .
When I was ready to start the second sock, I pulled from the middle of the ball and … oh, my. The yarn began unraveling from the outside and a huge chunk came out of the middle. What a mess! Needless to say, this is in timeout until I have the patience to deal it.
I’m reading a new cozy mystery, Foul Play at Four. Although I’m not getting much reading time right now, it’s interesting so far but not pulling me in very quickly. You can see my reading challenge progress in the sidebar, if you’re interested.
