I think this is the longest it’s taken me to finish a pair of socks. I think I started these on May 20th. The other night I was working on them and the big fella actually said, “you don’t knit very much any more”. No kidding. That’s gotta change. There’s only so much time in the day and a huge portion of that is taken up by work.
This is Noro Kureyon sock yarn colour #92. From the outside of the skein, it looked like muted rainbow colours, not this wild acid green/yellow. I still like how they turned out, it was just not as expected.
Taking up Sabrina’s torch.
Most balls of Noro that I’ve worked with don’t really have a specific repeat; this one appears to, though. I wound off 50 grams into a ball and then just used the remaining part of the skein as is, instead of winding it into a ball as well. So the progression of the yarn was reversed for the first part of the skein. The colour scheme is reversed from one sock to the other. I doubt they still would have matched at any rate.
I think I actually prefer the cookies made with the smaller rectangular bits, not these big super-chips.
These spread out a little more than the last batch. That could be because it was quite hot on Sunday when I baked them off, or maybe because of the bigger chocolate pieces?
Ava patiently supervising the big fella stripping the meat off three roasting chickens that he cooked for them. She didn’t leave until he was done. They get a handful of roast chicken meat on top of their kibble every supper time.
The mail is finally moving – this little envelope of Filofax goodies was ordered on June 2nd. And I got it on July 4. Grrrr.
