Thank you to everyone who reached out to me after my last post. I never realized how little I sleep until I started tracking it. But that is neither here nor there after a weekend like we had. You see, one of the fun crazy things I get to do with my job is run a merch booth for a children's theater series. Which means I spent my weekend selling pirate gear to hundreds of excited little tots.
On Friday I cast on a new pair of socks out of some Patons Kroy that I have been sitting on for a while. They are doing a KAL over on Knitting in Circles for a very lovely pattern that I was very excited to knit. I worked on it through all eight shows but finally had to admit yesterday that the pattern just isn't for me. I find the key design element annoying to knit. How sad is that? I want to love the socks but that key element? It just drives me batty.
Fortunately I already had another skein of sock yarn wound and ready to go. A magical skein from Gnome Acres in the colorway Stars Hollow. I'm knitting the Breaking Hearts pattern. Seems appropriate.
