Knitting and weaving are some of those background projects I work on between everything else, and although progress is usually slow, eventually I manage to make things in time that would otherwise be wasted. My current weaving project is moving slowly, although I'm making progress and can see more layers around the cloth beam, pictures would be just more of the same, so I'm using it for the background of my knitting pictures. Right now I've got two sock projects going at the same time because I find it difficult to work on the teal socks without adequate lighting, and I can't see sitting in the car just looking out the window, watching the world go by, or waiting for appointments, without doing something, I usually have a sock project in my purse that I can pull out to work on.
The new sock pattern is Serenity Socks, from the book Sock Club, and are a free download from Martingale and Company, who is also the publisher of my book, Flower Show Quilts, which is coming out in October. I love this pattern!!! It's knitting up quickly, and amazing how much I can get accomplished with each road trip (luckily I'm usually sitting on the passenger side). I'm working on the toe, so should be able to finish it up and start the second sock on the next trip! The yarn is Ranco Multy sock yarn, color 311 from Araucania Yarns.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned these teal socks, as they've been in my purse for quite a while. I must admit that once I started the Serenity Socks, I was enjoying them so much that they have been neglected even when there has been enough light to work on them. The pattern is the TTL Mystery Sock pattern designed by Kirsten Kapur, for Through The Loops, and I beleive the yarn is Louet Gems, hand dyed by Cherry Tree Hill, that was in my stash.
