The Lent resolution is for the Birds! It's cramping my style. I have 2 things I desparately want to cast on and can't! I really want to try a new techique for socks. Drat! Phooey. Pbbt!
And the snooze alarm...well...I was sick, I slept in instead of exercising more than one day in a row. And then I moved, and you know how sleeping someplace new is. Even as a professional *new place next month* person I don't sleep well the first couple of days somewhere new....what is that noise, what is that light, etc. etc.
I like sleeping, I'm good at it, I've spent many hours of my life doing it, and I enjoy it. It's hard to give that up in the morning. Sigh.
However, you will notice that KFYS allowed Sock Yarn. Perfect for the 52 plunge. So I engaged in Yarn Love with this mushroomy variegated from Ellens Half Pint Farm purchased at Alfred Station Knitting Studio. I love the ladies who run this. Again, I ordered a book from her at full price, because, well, I want good things for her. And a ball of Online Supersock cotton Beach Colour 946. Not my usual type of sock yarn but I thought...change, hmmn. Okay, I confess it was all about the colours.
I can tell you I will not be making
this. Between the scarred knees and the spider veins, it would be perfect for Halloween.
