Happy May Day! I guess there will be no dancing around the Maypole today, but I am optimistic that May will be so much better than April...or March. As Dee mentions, it is time for a NEW BEGINNING.
Yesterday I managed to finish the first of my SIL's socks and start #2.
Though the pink and green are not quite what I had envisioned initially, I like the way they worked out. The speckle yarn is from Spun Right Round - an 80/20 blend in the colorway "Rumble in Brighton." The pink is Madeline Tosh Merino Light (100% superwash) in the colorway "Coquette." The green is leftover from my Miss Lime socks. It is House Cat from Wandering Cat (100% superwash) in the colorway "Leaf Bug."
It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but the leg is fairly long: 15 rows of ribbing at the cuff and then 100 rows of knitting before the heel flap. I don't think they will quite be knee socks, but longer than usual. So far I have 10 rows of ribbing complete on #2 and hopefully will get more done on that today.
Not sure I will get out today - a bit of a chance for thunderstorms this morning and showers this afternoon. But the weekend looks good. Not sunny, but warm (low 70's!!) and zero chance of rain both days. Woo-Hoo. Maybe I can find another Heron's nest? And, it seems like our wind has finally abated.
Fletch is running to the store today. We need limes (Mexican food tonight) and a few other things that I forgot when I went out Monday night. Hopefully it will go smoothly for him. I have a conference call at 10 and then will do my workout. I'm hoping for a non-work afternoon, but we will see (things seem to pick up every afternoon around 4 which is weird, but it is Friday, so I hope it is calm). I'd like to knit and maybe make another Granny Square!
Happy Weekend and Happy May - enjoy!
