V is for Vacation
Wish I could take him with me. I leave at the butt crack of dawn tomorrow for home. It's that time of year. Tomorrow is also (as some of you have noticed) the one year anniversary of the day I quit smoking. I'm quite proud of myself. V is also for Vert. If you're french. If you aren't, just say "Green". I have a few FO's to show you. First up, is "Le Slouch" from Knit and Tonic. I started this last Thursday night and finished it Friday night. I've been wearing it everywhere ever since. Me likey. Jochibi - do you recognize the yarn I used? You should. It's the Malabrigo you gifted me in my 3rd SP package you sent. I finally found the perfect project for it! And I have enough left over that I could totally make another one, but I'll find a different project for it. In making this, I actually found an error in the pattern. I questioned Wendy about it and she confirmed it and immediately fixed the pdf. So if you downloaded this pattern before Saturday the 16th, it's wrong. Second up is the Black Bunny Fibers Feather and Fan Socks. Or my "Keuka Socks" as I like to think of them. Same colors as my alma mater. Toe: Magic Cast-on from Knitty.com Reverse Heel Flap from the Diamante Socks in the Fall 2006 Knitty Cuff - just your regular feather and fan. These socks were a trial. Y'all were here for their evolution, I'll not relive it. I hope to have only positive thoughts associated with these socks in the future. But I finished them the morning of the 10th. Not a good day for me. So that's why I'm calling them my Keuka socks. I loved my Alma Mater and the time I spent there. The green and gold. Our symbol was an acorn, and our mascot a warrior. I always thought of that warrior as a squirrel dressed in knights armor. Seemed appropriate. Heh. I'll try to post tomorrow when I get to the great white north. I do have W and X to do before Friday.
