Could I possibly look more rolly polly? Believe it or not, I was sucking in as much as I possibly could in this picture. This is definitely going to require some firming undergarments. A better idea would be to stop eating cookies probably. definitely. I've also made some progress on my Bird in Hand mittens and I'm totally loving them now that I picked different colors.
Certainly not a knit night project since I'd like to talk a bit instead of focus entirely on a chart. However, to that end, I also started a pair of socks :) I really wanted to make a pair of Hederas - because I love anything Cookie A. designs! I started that pattern in this Socks that Rock colorway just because I totally wanted to make something out of it ASAP, but decided that I didn't like all the color changes with the pattern. When I got this sock yarn I intended to make Jaywalkers with it because I just don't really like multicolor yarn in pretty much any other pattern. But I just made Jaywalkers and didn't really want to start another pair. Alas, I had to, but only ripped back to the ribbed part because it looked so great (Cookie A. seems to do the 1x1 twisted rib alot and it looks amazing - plus the ribbing on my last Jaywalkers was a little loosey goosey) and the zig zaggy pattern looks FANTASTIC with the colors!
I looooove them and I'm only a few inches in! woohoo! This is also a great excuse to buy some solid, or semi solid yarn for the Hederas. Oh, and by the way, the STR is, hands down, the best sock yarn I've ever used. Yeah, apparently when you pay $20 you get some good shit! I'd like to think I could just get some $3 KnitPicks sock yarn and be as happy, but I can't!
