Being unemployed and all, I decided to make my own sock blockers out of a plastic place mat from the dollar store. They are multi-functional as they can be used as guides when figuring out all that math that comes with knitting.
Since finishing the log cabin blanket, which Tomma uses nearly every day FYI, I have been casting on new projects like a mad woman. I currently have a wool soaker (also for Tomma), the beginnings of a Charade sock, the second Monkey, and I’ve finally put some time into some projects that were started last fall.
Tomorrow I’m going to Vancouver and will be there until Sunday. I think I’ll buy yarn to knit this sweater that I’ve been drooling over since seeing the preview last month. On Thursday, I will turn the big 2-5, a full quarter century. It seems like the right time to start my first sweater.
