phew - i'm back. i actually got back last week, but have been busy dyeing like mad to try & restock the shop (lots of yarn mysteriously disappeared while i was gone - i'll be checking what my shop volunteers add to their ravelry stash listings, as i certainly have my suspicions as to where it's all gone...).
the trip was great, but exhausting - it's nice to be home. & i did manage to plow through quite a lot of knitting while i was away, what with all the sitting about & chatting that we did - but it's not gone quite how i expected it to.
i thought i'd get a lot done on my paper crane - a super-fine stockinette knit that goes on forever, which would be perfect for a holiday with a lot of sitting/knitting/chatting time. but then something else happened.
first there were these - i just about finished one on the plane, and the other grew quickly during my first few days in canada.
socks that rock lightweight in "pond scum"
then, there was this - i bought the yarn (in a very familiar colour!) in my next few days in canada, and wound it up at the shop so i could start straightaway.
fleece artist somoko, can't remember the colour
then, before i could even start the second one, this happened (at least it's a different colour...?).
my own merino sock yarn in "midnight"
i don't know what's going on - i'm mad for the monkeys!! i think this may be my sock for the summer - i've now knitted the pattern so many times that i don't even need to look at the charts anymore (& the leg of the last one is accidentally one pattern repeat longer than it ought to be as i was too busy chatting & just kept knitting).
and as if that wasn't enough - guess what i'm going to make with this new acquisition?
would that be so wrong?
