I went as long as I could without any socks on the needles but I finally caved. Plain vanillas all around. I just wanted something to keep my hands busy. This is some Hawthorne in the Happy Valley colorway.
Even though my last ball of Cascade Heritage was a bust I went back for more.
Remember this? I picked it up at last year's MDSW. I loved those bright colors.
It now looks like this. The colors that were so vivid in the skein are now muted. I can't believe it's the same yarn. I don't hate it but I was sure surprised.
Then I got the bug to start a sweater and remembered I had this one in the works already. Its time has come. Maybe I can get it done by fall?
I also need to get this Scrubby on the needles. It reminds me of a Peep so I want it for my Easter dishcloth.
Finally, the Willow Cowl is actually done BUT...it's a big disappointment. I loved the pattern. I love my handspun but the darn thing is too floppy at the top. It's supposed to fit snug on your neck but it just hangs open and that's pretty useless against a cold Bay breeze. Oh, well. You can't win'em all. I guess I'll let it marinate a while and then maybe I'll rip it out and try to fix it once I am over being mad at it.
