Plain stockinette extravaganza

I'm still recovering from "the work project that ate my life".

So, I'm afraid it's more stockinette for you.


Vanilla sock, in Noro Silk Garden, S269.


I figured that blogging about plain socks is better than not blogging at all, right?

Anyone paying attention to my queue and favourites in Ravelry knows that my fingers are just itching for some intricate lace shawls in rich, jewel tones. To be continued....

Spring cleaning


It's high time to clear out the cobwebs from this poor neglected blog (thank you Joan and Kathy for the gentle kick in the pants, it's what I needed).

I've been a little bit overwhelmed lately. In these last few months, I've been running the final miles of a 6-year marathon at work. I was immersed in a huge, difficult, long-term project that is finally, FINALLY wrapping up this week. I cannot tell you how happy and relieved I am that it is successfully completed, and over. I can reclaim my life.


Of course, knitting has brought me solace. I've kept things pretty simple to ease my stressed-out mind. Lots and lots of stockinette, plain vanilla socks and garter stitch.

(a very plain pullover, perfect for evening walks on the beach this summer)

It's nice to be back. I've missed this place.
