Kew Socks

 Cloud Chaser Vest

As for the Kew socks, they’re a favorite, I think this is at least the third pair I’ve knitted, but it never fails to challenge me.  It usually takes at least three false starts before I can settle into the groove of the pattern, but my patience is always rewarded in the end.

Cloud Chaser has been on my radar for a long time, I love cables and this vest has plenty.  I finally found the perfect yarn in the perfect color – I swear that certain patterns seem to whisper their approval when the perfect yarn is found.  If I try to force it, by settling for a “nearly perfect” yarn, nothing ever works and the project more often than not ends up abandoned or conveniently “misplaced”, usually at the bottom of a nearly forgotten, rarely used knitting bag tossed into the back of the closet. Does anyone else find this true??

THIS WEEK I’M READING

Center of Gravity

Mischling

Island of the Colorblind

 Restless Sleep

Shattered Dreams

Actually, this is not completely true; not much reading or knitting being done since Emma arrived, only a few minutes snatched here and there throughout the day.  Baby Emma and Big Mommy were discharged today so I expect things will settle down into a more normal routine in a few days.

 

Immorality: The morality of those who are having a better time.  Henry Louis Mencken
