Grande: I finished the Tribute Socks. They're knit from Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Seaglass and they're super cushy and fun to wear.
Brewing: I gave away two pairs of socks recently, Marilinda and Twisted Flower, both by Cookie A. These socks were simply too big for me! This fact has propelled me into my own sock design, but left me with a question about using smaller needles than size 0, or other ways of knitting my socks just a bit smaller than they've been turning out.
I've also become enamored of the Wingspan shawl. Sparkli happened to have the exact extra ball of yarn that I need to create one! Twitter can facilitate minor miracles.
Flavor of the Day: This past week I wore: Rocky Coast Cardigan, Gable Mitts, Pogona, Clapotis, Stricken, Uptown Girl, Berlin Muster, My Heart Beets 4 U and Summer Sliding Socks.
Chai: Abby went to the Cheeseboard Collective for the first time and had fabulous thin crust pizza. Yum!
A Story: I talk about my first knitting project, and "relearning" to knit from Barbara Walker's Learn to Knit Afghan Book which, by the way is still in print!
Sofa: I have abandoned the idea of seeing 2 of the Oscar nominated films: Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild. I have been enjoying catching up on The Walking Dead and I'm thrilled about the new season of Smash.
Events: I will be at Madrona! Ping me if you'd like to get together.
