Well, technically it’s been a stitchin’ Friday AND Saturday, but alliteration rules.
In my endless, glacial-speed attempt to make friends locally after five years, I spent yesterday evening at a pajama party with some local knitting gals.
In the end, I’m really glad I went. Met a couple of new ladies, watched a couple of fun movies and swatched for a sweater (wrong gauge, natch) and worked on Furrow sock #1 (Rav link).
Today was the weekly coffee shop Meetup. Cast on Reyna attempt #3. I just can’t find a color combination I love.
This one has a certain autumnal / VT thing going on. I’ll give it a couple more repeats and see how it goes. Only got a couple more rows knocked out while watching Caps-Bruins. Way too tense to knit and purl.
Since we’re getting an extra hour of sleep tonight, I’m curled up with Dr. No and Cozy Afternoon (Rav link). Decided to finally use some of the yarn I picked up in 2016 at the Wool Gathering.
Just finished picking up the stitches for sleeve #2. Now for some decreases and endless stockinette. The yarn is a little scratcher than I’d like; I’m hoping it softens up a bit with the first washing.
