Sock Update

I finally got caught up with the rest of the April Showers sock knitalong, getting through Clue #5 before Clue #6 (the last clue) comes out on Friday:

Front    Back

There's little flowers, and umbrellas, rain, and a lone cloud up in the sky. On the back, lightning flickers up and down the leg. It is maybe a July thunderstorm rather than an April shower. 

While I wait for Clue #6 to come out, I'll crochet a little on my In a Spin sampler afghan. I'm on Week Seven; everyone else is on Week Twelve. Oh well, I will get it done eventually. 

Lynne has caught up and surpassed me in our Harriet cardigans. Yikes! I better get a move on! :)

The Days Are Getting Longer!

I keep telling myself that.

In knitting news, I finished the My Little Pony socks:

MLP socks
Aren't they disgustingly cute? Rest assured, no My Little Ponies were harmed. It just looks like I am wearing their hides.

I'm on to my next socks:

April Showers socks
These are April Showers socks from Knitters Brewing Company, and it's their Mystery Sock V, which means the completed sock is a mystery for the duration of the knitalong. Mine are in Sockaholic Mint Julip, and I am  currently on clue 2. Everyone else is on clue 4, but I had some horsin' around to do first ... I am catching up pretty quickly, though. There are two more clues to be given, so you can still join! We'll be done by the end of February.

Lynne and I are working on our Harriet cardigans from A Fine Fleece, she in teal tweed yarn and I in purple Jo Sharp DK wool tweed. (The book's out of print or I'd link it. So is the yarn, I think.) So far we have only gotten the border on the back done. Here is mine:


Lynne brought me tulips:

I think this means we're engaged. :)

(Thank you, Lynne!)
