First things first –
OFF THE NEEDLES AND INTO THE SOCK DRAWER
Poodle Skirt Colorway
Finally got colorway and pattern to play nice in the sandbox and I’m loving the almost candy cane color changes!
ALMOST ON THE NEEDLES
A little while back, Mr. Iknead requested a pair of blue striped socks, so off and on I’ve been scoping out different yarns and patterns, thinking maybe something with little or no wool (way too hot for our Arkansas summers) and chanced upon this yarn yesterday at Hobby Lobby. Blue – check, no wool – check, sock weight – check, price – $4.99. All systems go. Label says 93% acrylic, 7% PBT (whatever that is).
These are destined to be plain vanilla, quick knit, ribbed socks. All that pretty lacy stuff is lost on Mr. Iknead.
Cutest Sprout Ever!

When the voices of children are heard on the green
And laughing is heard on the hill
My heart is at rest within my breast
And everything else is still
