Busy Weekend

It’s been an amazing few days.  I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the response to my Petty Harbour pattern, released last week when my new blog launched.  (Don’t forget to leave a comment on Friday’s post for an entry in the contest to win a lovely skein of Sundara Sock!)  I have received so many wonderful compliments and so much encouragement.  In fact, all the warm, positive energy spurred me to finish my newest design on the weekend.  I am hoping to have that released in a few week’s time so stay tuned!

The weekend also saw a road trip with friends to the Knitter’s Fair in Kitchener-Waterloo.  I promised myself I’d be conservative with my purchases, and finding out Waterloo Wools was going out of business didn’t help that resolution.  I also dropped by Georgian Bay Fibre Company‘s booth for some Carla’s Pengallie Fingering, and snagged a new wedge project bag from Zig Zag Stitches.

Gift knitting continues apace, the schedule thrown off only by my mom’s weekend request for “black” socks.  I am a definite “colour” person, so after last year’s “brown socks debacle”, I swore off brown knitting for quite a long while.  Since Chase has requested charcoal mittens and I was looking at knitting myself a dark grey half-Pi shawl, that moratorium may very well apply to black knitting soon.  In the meantime, I have some great nearly-black indigodragonfly Merino Nylon Sock wound and ready for another pair of Petty Harbour socks.  It’s testament to how much I love my parents and my husband that I am willing to knit them all so much black and brown 😉

By Christmas, I have a feeling I am going to be in desperate need of a nice colourful knit..some bright stripe-y socks, maybe.

    • Awesome! I could not stand the thoughts of solid black, but Pop Music is a nice variegated black. I fear it will be hard to knit these at night…I wish she had requested them in June when the evenings were longer 😉
