I'm attempting to make a dent in my sock yarn and so yesterday I decided to give the Chevron scarf another try this time with different colours of yarn. My last attempt was frogged because there was too much pooling. This one's probably going to get frogged because it's seriously blah! I think I'm trying to coordinate too much instead of going for 2 contrasting yarns.
Despite my good efforts, the sock yarn is coming in as fast as I can whip FOs out -- yesterday I received by Seasons shipment from Sundara in colourway Tickled Pink. I love the name of the colourway. But I wasn't bowled over with this colour. Maybe I'll put it out on Ravelry for trade?
This afternoon I might put the knitting down to stamp and write some much belated Christmas thank you cards. Here's the design that I'm thinking I'll replicate:
And keep your fingers crossed for no snow in Colorado tomorrow. Nachaele had this great idea that in 2008 we should visit all the yarn stores in Colorado and buy a skein of yarn from each to make an afghan. Tomorrow Nachaele, Kelly and I are hoping to head up to Estes Park and visit The Stitchin' Den and Neota Designs. Otherwise the backup plan might be to stay indoors knitting and watching movies. Yep Plan B sounds pretty good too.
Enjoy the long weekend!
