I started this post last Friday on National Talk Like a Pirate Day, so hopefully that explains the title. But it well explains my mood this week. I think things are taking a turn for the better today but up until now I've been in a foul mood.
I started a new pair of socks a couple weeks ago and I've finished 1. But I've had to put them aside for baby sweaters this week. They are the Zigzagular Socks by PrairieGirlSusie and I'm using Poste Striping Yarn from Simply Socks Yarn Co. in the Ibiza colorway. They are a little Halloween-ish but ok for all year long. I really like them and the pattern is fun too.
I also finished a pair of mitts in Knit Picks Galileo. The yarn is yummy, I haven't used it before and I only had 1 ball from a sampler kit I bought last year. I would love to make a whole sweater in this stuff soon. It's very soft and a little shiny. An I'm really liking sport weight yarn right now. I think it will be a really good weight for our Texas winters which can be pretty cold but never for long.
Now for the baby sweaters. Everyone around me seems to be breeding lately. Some of these babies are already here but some are not yet born. I've finished up 3 this week!
I spent some time reorganizing my stash recently also. It's taking up 6 tubs! It was hard to bring everything out in the open but I like being able to see it all now. It's easier to remember all the wonderful things I have planned for it like this!
