Oops, I did it again

I started a sock. Yes, the spell of the shawl is broken. I didn’t knit at all yesterday; I had lunch with a friend, then went home early with a muscle spasm in my back. The meds I took for that weren’t conducive to knitting, let alone lace knitting. This morning when I was getting my things together for work, I immediately grabbed this new yarn and project bag. Partly it was because I figured I’d have lunch with my knitting friend at work and needed something easy, and partly because I wanted something new and fun to work on. Specifically, I wanted my Flowers in the Mist kit from Knitting in the Heartland!

The yarn is Show Me Yarn’s Bootheel base, and it was dyed to match this gorgeous project bag (which also has two coordinating stitch markers!).

You could only get it at KITH this year, I believe, and I’m pretty sure I was the first one to snatch one at the special night of shopping after Franklin Habit’s keynote address. (I can move fast if yarn is involved.) I actually did cast on right after KITH but set it aside after just a few rows because I got distracted by other yarns. But now I want these pretty flower socks!

I just made it past the 1.5″ of ribbed cuff so it’ll be lovely mindless stockinette for a while, and I can see how the colors behave. I might not wear them for a while, but it will be nice to have them waiting for fall!

  1. Oooh, that is lovely! I would have snatched that up for the project bag alone, but the yarn is pretty too!

    And you’re not alone. I started new socks this weekend too, after claiming that I wanted to finish projects instead of starting new ones…

  2. The yarn and bag are both beautiful. You didn’t drive across that big city with a back spasm? The thought of driving through a big city gives me panic attacks.

    • Well, I drove home from work, about 30 minutes of highway driving. I guess it’s a big city but I’ve been doing it for the last two years and I’ve gotten used to it. Still don’t love the traffic though!
