I love warm evenings like this one.  Here’s how I’ll be rolling till either the mosquitos find me or I can no longer see my knitting.  Then I will join the Red Sox and Bruins faithful inside. Enjoy your evening!

Something Finished, Something New

It will be a week of rain here in my neck of the woods.  I promise not to bog you down with my dreary days so if you stay around until the end of the post, you can see what a good day looks like.

Quality indoor photos of a finished pair of socks! (add sarcasm)  I started these on the way to Sock Camp in March and am wearing them for the first time today (cuz it’s rainy and cold…hullo… May, where are you?!)

Yarn: Blue Moon FIber Arts Socks That Rock Lightweight

in the lovely Rabia colorway

Pattern: Northampton Beat Socks (yes, mine!)  (full details here on Ravelry)

Since I published Marrowstone last week (thank you for all the nice comments and lovin), I have been readying the next design.  Here it is!

Believe me when I say wet blocking is a miracle tool in a knitter’s arsenal.  I am putting the finishing touches on the pattern of this summer scarf and it is almost ready for a test drive.  Any takers?  Email me if you’d like more info…

And now for the beauty shot of the day:

I only wish you could smell these lilacs.  Despite the rain and mist, these are the highlight of my daily walk. And they may live on my table now too!

Hope you have a great week, rain or no rain!
