Let's talk knitting. With corn out of my diet and the inflammation down, I am able to knit for short periods at a time, the sort of knitting that is perfect for socks. Last month my BFFs and I spent a day over the mountains shopping for boots, cider, ice cream, wee amplifiers, peaches, and yarn. I brought home a ball of Auserman Step with Aloe Vera to make socks for Husband.
The morning routine requires that Youngest Son and I are up at 5:00 and I hang out with him while he has breakfast and makes lunch. What do I do? Knit.
I started these socks three weeks ago when school began and am surprised by how much knitting can be accomplished during an hour. With this pair done I needed more yarn.
You can not believe how surprised I was to find this yarn at Michael's. 60/30/10 merino/nylon/cashmere. Pretty colors, VERY soft, and only $6 a ball, what more could I ask for? About the time I was thinking about casting on with this yarn the mailman arrived and brought this.
A present from one of my BFFs! My BFFs are the best! I had been admiring her candy corn colored yarn so she sent some Halloween yarn of my very own.
The colors make me think of glowing Jack-O-Lanterns sitting on the front step. So pretty. Because of the short color runs I expected pooling, but nope it is knitting up in a very random way.
The morning's knitting. These socks are for me and will be finished in plenty of time to wear while passing out Halloween candy.
