The Husband got some good pics this morning out by the lake in which I don’t look terribly hideous and so I’m one happy knitter.
|Behold, on the ground!|
The Husband loves the picture to the right. I think it's stupid, but he was nice enough to postpone what he was doing this morning to take pictures for me so I'm posting it just for him. For the record, I was pointing to some blackberries that are growing on the slope that goes down to the lake in our back yard. I had no idea they were there.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
I’m SO ready to cast on another project that is not socks. I’m still on my sock kick, but that only works for me if I have something else on needles that are larger than size 2 to break the monotony (I’m currently suffering from 2nd sock syndrome…can you tell?).
Unfortunately, I’ve looked at hundreds of patterns on Rav and nothing has inspired me so far. It has really frustrated me to no end this week. With all those patterns to choose from, why the problem?
Don’t worry, I WILL screw up the courage to start this project. I did register for a free class on Craftsy in which Carol Feller herself teaches on short rows. I'm sure I'll learn a lot. Eventually. In the meantime, if I just happen to run across another pattern that captures my attention, well…
P.S.--Last summer at the Magnolia State Fiber Festival, I picked up some madelinetosh tosh merino light in both tart and jade, one of which I'll be using for my Sandy Cove. Just so I can't use it as another reason to delay casting on, help me decide on a color! What say ye?
