I feel as though I may need some snorkeling gear. We are forecast to get 2-4+ inches of rain today. Flood watches are out. It's also chillier than recent days - only in the mid 30's, so not real comfortable out. It is the perfect day to stay home...but I am at work....
I did, however, manage to start a new pair of socks last night.
Isn't that yarn pretty? The colorway is Barn Owl and it is from Sheep's Clothing Yarn Co. A 75/25 blend. I believe I picked it up at the Allentown yarn festival last year...but it may have been at a LYS that Dee dragged me to (LOL - not a difficult thing to drag me to a LYS). Anyhoo, it is delightful to knit with (so far - I've managed to do 10 rows of 2x2 ribbing). This is not the yarn I had in mind, but this jumped out of the stash chest and caught my eye. I'm planning these for Fletch (hopefully he will like the yarn) and I think I'll just do a K6, P2 pattern on the leg. There's enough color variation that I don't really want a busy pattern. This picture gives you a better sense of the yarn - pic is from Sheep's Clothing web site:
This project bag and the shawl have both come to work with me today - I'll probably work on the sock at lunch. And now I'm prepared for meeting up with Dee on Saturday - an easy knit to work on while we chat and sip coffee!
