Just a small post


I finished another pair of socks this weekend. I knit these in the new Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome yarn, in the Monet colorway. I really like the feel of this yarn. And on other knitting fronts: I am still plugging along on the afghan for the in-laws, the deadline for that is quickly approaching. I am officially behind on the MS3 as I have not finished all of clue 2 yet and clue 3 is out. And this weekend when I was looking for something in the yarn stash, I rediscovered a UFO that I really want to finish, the Fiona Ellis sweater I started over the winter. I knit about 8 inches or so on that this weekend. The back is almost finished. I was thinking about how long it has been since I knit a sweater for myself. I think it has been 20 years or more. The in-laws have each been gifted 2, my sister and my niece have received a few, and of course my children have many. I think it is my turn.
More later with pictures.

yes you definitely deserve a sweater knit by yourself for yourself. The socks looks great (I can't wait to knit this pattern too). Keep plugging away at the afghan and MS3, you'll get them done in time.

The socks look great. Yes you deserve a sweater for yourself. After knitting for others fo so long you should do something for yourself.

I think is't time for a sweater for you, too. MS3? I haven't even picked out my yarn yet. Oh well, someone has to be a slacker.

Pretty yarn and pattern!! I've been wondering about the new CTH sock yarn - I love the original, but think the added strength of nylon will make it even better...I'm glad to hear you liked it!
