Some knitting and stash enhancement …

3 Comments

Last weekend, Cindy and I met and went to the World’s Smallest Craft show, which included Rachel’s Dyeabolical Yarn. Of course we each came away with some yarn, need you ask?

New yarn

Since I had recently (Friday night) finished a pair of socks to wear on Saturday,

I had a set of lonesome sock needles, so it didn’t take long for me to wind a skein of yarn and start a new sock. Due to time in the car, it’s coming along quite quickly.

Dyeabolical Merino Sock; color, Themyscira.

Some very nice alpaca also followed me home, and I’ve been playing with a different shaping. I’m not sure yet if this is going to do what I want it to, but time will tell. I have found that I need to pay attention each time the pattern gets wider.

After our yarn stops, we had lunch and did a few more things, before we had to head for home (sadly much too soon!), but with plans for more fun at a later date.

So far we’ve escaped the frost, and things are still growing. Since it cooled off a bit and rained, there are new tomatoes on the plants, and I’m hoping that at least some of them will ripen. The flowers are also still blooming.

Nasturtiums & marigolds.

Toby’s usually pretty camera-shy, but I caught him in mid-run the other day (he may have 1 foot on the ground). πŸ™‚

High-speed Toby.

  1. Love your sock!!! We did have so much fun, didn’t we? And, the pic of lil Toby? Love it!!! He’s running so very fast.

  2. The alpaca is turning out lovely!

  3. I really like the new sock. Knitting is one of the reasons I don’t do our highway driving. That and we get there way faster when DH drives, and if I’m knitting I can’t watch the speedometer. Win-win.

    Nice picture of Toby! How old?
