Only One Day Left!

This long weekend has flown by! I have more bags and even a NEW ITEM to show you, but that will come tomorrow...promise!

I did want to show you this:
That is indeed the ill-fated Seaweed Sock in STR Hot Flash! The first sock is finally, FINALLY finished!
And here is the view of MY heel. The one I make with every sock. I probably should have carried the gusset up to a natural peak but was planning on knitting the cuff with an extra repeat of the small chart lace pattern, and since I had enough stitches, I just got started with it. No pretty V there at all, huh?

Oh, well. The sock fits. Which is more than I can say for my previous attempts! Live and learn...isn't it pretty?

And I'll show you something else pretty:
The Regia Jacquard in Florence. I'm just going to let the yarn show through on this one, and knit a plain vanilla stockinette sock. If I have time, I may polish my nails to match like Jane Brockett did. It's so much fun watching these stripes appear...

(These days, I'm very easily amused. But I'll take whatever I can get to give my mind a break - Since last Sunday, I've made 20 bags and many accessory items - in addition to working a full-time job. This is when it's a LOT of work to do what I do, because I do prefer a bit slower pace to things...)

So. Stop by tomorrow for a surprise?

Stripes are entrancing - I'm easily amused, too!

That kind of Regia responds well to a simple rib cuff, too -- K3, p1, or K2, p2. (Just in case you decide plain vanilla will sag.)

Suspect we'll loose power mid-day. Back at you when Gustav has passed and power restored.

That Regia is just flash socks are pretty too. That's a lot of bags...celebrate your labor today and take the day for yourself. :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
