No Harm in Yarn

Can't we all just knit along?



Just wanted to post photos of the finished Twisted Flower socks! This pattern has always reminded me of work by the architect Louis Sullivan.

I Got Nuthin'

Well, nothing much. That's the problem with working 3 projects at once. I never really do more than 2 at once but I guess I was so excited to be done with Christmas knitting that I just cast on whatever was within reach.

Here's one of the Twisted Flower Socks...

...and this is the beginning of the Myrtle Leaf Shawl from Victorian Lace Today in Oregon Coast, and....

...this is a seed stitch baby sweater in Patons SWS. I love this icy blue!

I won some yarn from the Ravelry Sock Knitters Anonymous "Sockdown " group on Ravelry! These beautiful skeins are Dream in Color Smooshy in Beach Fog and Cool Fire. They came from Sonny and Shear, who have it going on!

Hey, it turns out I had sumthin' !


Twisted Flower is All Talk

I had a fear of the Twisted Flower Sock pattern by Cookie A. Designs. I've owned it for some time. It's one of those patterns that is so beautiful and intricate and involved... that I put it off. I'm afraid I won't be able to understand the chart or perform some crazy stitch. It taunts me with it's twists and trellises and texture.
Well, I sat down, after all of the needy animals were fed, watered, and asleep, to conquer it 2 nights ago. I knit the 1x1 ribbed cuff. I finished the chart. I moved over the instructed number of stitches, and completed a second round of the chart.
You know what? It's not so bad! Now, I've only knit the cuff and the leg. There may be some heel weirdness or toe complications to shut me up, it's true. But, I bet not.

Twisted Flower in Progress

The air seems fresher. The sun? Brighter!

Now, I only have (doctor's) needles and very confined spaces left on my list of scary things...
