Well, I blame Kathi aka Grumperina. She finally revealed the name of her Secret Dyer–Sundara. The one who dyed that beautiful yarn for her grandmother’s shawl. And for the red shawl Eunny just finished.
So, look what that made me do. I just bought two skeins of sock yarn in this gorgeous colorway, Black Lagoon. It should be here within the week!
Meanwhile, I just started a pair of socks in the yarn I got from Dani’s Sunshine Yarns. It’s the “Slytherin” colorway–greens and whites. (Much nicer color than the House, of course.) I’ve just got the two sock toes done at this point–not a single row more–so, really, it’s not even worth showing you a photo (yet).
My Lotus Blossom Shawl? I’m on row 160–that means I’ve got, what, 8 more rows? That’s about 2600 more stitches, not counting the bind off. I got four rows done tonight, so in theory, that’s two more nights’ worth of knitting.
And the Not-So Shrunken cardigan? I did, in fact, start it and got all of four rows done. (It’s apparently the magic number tonight.) Clearly, that means there’s not much to look at there, either.
See? Isn’t it lucky Kathi revealed her secret dyer and that I bought that yarn tonight? Or I would have had nothing to show you at all . . . Phew!
