As Promised

Actual knitting content! I really haven't been knitting a lot this week. I'm just now getting to the gusset of the first sock.

I'm really loving this colorway. It's just nice and subtle and I'm really thinking I need some more of this particular colorway. Usually, I just take a colorway, make one pair with it and move on to the next, but this one speaks to me. (I also need to get some more Lorna's Laces Black Purl. I LOVE that color!)

Don't you hate when you can't get a decent shot of something so gorgeous that you just want to show the world? This was the best shot out of about 15 (thank goodness for digital cameras!) and it still doesn't do it justice. It's the swatch for Trellis Scarf in that gorgeous purple cashmere. I love this stuff; I think I might actually save it for Project Spectrum's July.

I think it's going to be a lovely Trellis Scarf.

Julie's doing well. She's sleeping quite a bit and is on pain meds and antibiotics, but she seems to be getting around okay and going up and down steps, slowly but surely. Thank you again for all the well wishes!

I made my Trellis out of cashmere and I LOVE it! it's a great pattern! I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks in the slightly variegated yarn.

I love your trekking socks! I'm not much for pastels, but that colorway speaks to me, too. The pattern is pretty cool, too. I like the cashmere scarf as well, and I see what you person, it's probably even more delicious!
