So, I am not so much with the posting lately. I have a ton of photos and stories, but I have just been completely swamped at work, and when I don't take lunch, I don't get to post. I have been knitting, though. I knit these lovelies out of Sweet Georgia in Summer Skin for my Mother-in-Law for her birthday (the color is a little bit off, and I couldn't try them on because my MIL has *tiny* feet):
The pattern is, I believe, the beaded rib from Knit Sensational Socks (no time to get all linky today).
I also picked up some Fleece Artist that The Yarnery brought by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's talk. One skein was the moss or fern colorway (too busy to look it up), very pretty, kind of what I think of as dragon green. Then my friend, who has a dragon thing, got sick, and I discovered that Child's First Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks looks very much like scales. I therefore made my friend dragon socks. For various reasons I had to frog the first sock twice before I liked how it turned out:
I haven't uploaded the finished pix yet, but you get the idea.
You know how I was bemoaning the lack of cherry blossoms in my vicinity? Sundara (search for Sundara yarns, she comes up) dyed this as a limited edition in April:
Cherry Blossom yarn!
It made me very happy.
