Slip Jig pattern (ravelry link) in My Wild Irishgirlie colorway
These socks were so. much. easier. than the January ones. It was a delight to have something that seemed to fall off the needles after struggling to do a k3tog through back loop coupled with a cable in the January ones. It's impossible to do, just so you know.
While I'm waiting for the May sock club shipment to arrive, I need a new project. I tried to start this for Brandy (don't click if you want it to be a surprise, Brandy!) but I don't have the correct needles. This is always a shock to me. How is it possible that I don't own every single knitting needle I need? Do you know how many needles I own? Crazy.
This is the birthday season, so time is limited. In the span of less than three weeks, we have 5 birthdays in our immediate family plus Mother's Day. This year we also have a baby dedication for our new niece. I haven't cooked all week--there's been lots of pizza and accompanied weight gain--but I believe my next attempt will be no-knead bread. Cathy Erway talks a lot about that bread in her book, and I do love bread.... Stay tuned!
