Interlude

My Delphia shawl went into time-out on Friday night. I was working on the lace pattern and realized I’d added four rows of stockinette that weren’t supposed to be there. (I was supposed to start on row 5 of the lace pattern, not 1. Argh.) I had to decide whether to frog four rows of 250+ stitches or live with the extra rows. The weather was perfect spring sunshine so while that project thought about what it had done, the husband and I went out adventuring. We hit a couple of estate sales and then a couple of historic downtown areas, and had a marvelous time shopping, window-shopping, and enjoying the weather. Of course I found some goodies!

The little sheep salt and pepper shakers might be my favorite find. Except for the yarn. Yes, of course we went to a yarn store! At Florilegium in Weston, I bought two beautiful skeins from dyers I’d never heard of.

For my car-knitting, I pulled out my new vanilla sock. I’m using the Knit Picks Capretta Reserve in Pickle Juice for the accent and Show Me Yarn Bootheel for the body.

As always, I love the colors in their self-striping yarn and right now this is all I want to knit!

  1. I absolutely love the colors on your vanilla sock.
    I have several projects in time out too. Some may just end up being frogged.
    I am glad you got to go out and enjoy the weather. And those sheep are adorable!
