Today, I decided to treat myself and spend some time knitting. Strange as it may seem, knitting has been so far down my “to do” list recently, and I felt I needed a fix.
I spent some time working on the lovely Fire On The Mountain chevron scarf. I have the STR yarn paired with some black swtc bamboo, which I love beyond compare. I kinda got bored referring to this project as the FOTM, and for some reason, the name reminded me of something, and I wracked my brains all morning. One of those “tip of the tongue” things – it finally hit me right between the eyes. It looks just like FTUMCH, who has to be one of my fave characters from the Young Ones. (Boring) So, I’m even more pleased with this scarf. JOY!
I also finally got around to knitting up the Lorna’s Laces Shephard Sock in Lilac. I’m doing the Toad In The Hole socks I designed last month and to stir things up a little, I’m doing both at the same time. I’ve never done this before, and I was determined not to look on line at a how-to. It took a little while to work out just how to align both sets of sts, but now I’m loving it. Cuff is done, first section of lace done, and I think I may have a new obsession. Who knew it was this easy? Of course, I may be singing a different tune when it’s time to turn the heel.
3618 people ahead of me on Ravelry – they are really flying right now. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that by this time next week, I’ll be on there. I know, I know, if I hadn’t procrastinated for so long, I would have been on there a couple of months ago. Better late than never. lol.
