One of these days

I finished some socks yay. The fox faces pattern was really easy to memorize the mountain colors yarn is ok to. At first I thought it felt like straw but it knits up nicely. I got spoiled by all those mcn’s. One non mcn I’m loving is Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Love Sock, its soft and smooshy.  I got a skein of wollmeise and I must say, that in my opinion, its highly overrated. It was horrible to knit with. I like smooshy yarns, and smooshy it was not. I won’t be buying that again. I started some socks for my husband with some Sweet Georgia  Yarn in rusted. I will post some pictures of those when they are done. My maternity leave is over in one week. I got the crazy idea that I must finish a cardigan before then. Its so not going to happen but I’m going to try. I frogged a halfway finished Castlegar Cardigan by Laura Chau for the Honeybee Cardigan also by Laura. I love her fingering weight cardigan patterns. Even though I haven’t managed to finish one, which of course is my fault. I’m having problems keeping all my stitches for the lace while swatching for the Honeybee Cardigan so we will see how far I get. I don’t have good luck with making adult cardigans. I have to complete a cardigan for myself. I also started another pair of socks. I also frogged the pair of socks that served as my first blog pic. I was never going to finish them. I seem to have a problem finishing Wendy Johnson patterns. I should take a hint but I just love her pattern books.
