Well, there really wasn't a lot of weekend knitting since I had a monster migraine all day Sunday and into yesterday. I did however, get a little done on Saturday. Karen gifted the STR medium wt yarn to me last year. I have cast on several times with it and off to the frog pond it would go. I think it just wanted to be plain vanilla, or close to it anyway. The colorway is Scottish Highlands. 5 x 2 rib all the way, on size 2 dpns. I love the color and what a quick knit. Thanks again Karen for my very first STR yarn. I think I am going to knit the Lover's Leap prize yarn in the Hearts-a-Plenty design.
And I have knit this sock in a different yarn, but I wanted to knit it in the Lamurple from Stone Barn Fibers I got from The Loopy Ewe The design is my own. I really don't like the feel of a short row heel on my foot, but I love the way they look. So, I keep trying different methods, trying to find the one I like the best. I like the look of this one, but still don't care for the way it feels on. I think I will stick with my heel flap.
My Wollmeise came in the mail at the end of last week. It is in the Zenzi colorway. From The Loopy Ewe, of course. I have it sitting here by the desk. I want to wind it, and will probably cave in here shortly. I wanted to get the designs ready to ship off. Sheri, at The Loopy Ewe is going to be selling some of my designs in the near future. I hope to get them mailed out to her at least by Friday. So, if you have been asking about some of my sock designs, keep an eye out for them there. She just posted my pattern for the last Wollmeise Sock, (which I neglected to give a proper name), on the free pattern page .
Hmmm, I think that is it, nothing else to share today. I will sit here and enjoy my Citrus Green Tea and enjoy the quiet for a few more minutes before the youngest comes bounding through the front door. They have ISTEP's this week, so she will have a lot of energy to burn, and a lot of talking to do.
