I have been gone a looong time, but now I’m back.
My absence was mostly because I wasn’t knitting… I had started Knitpicks’ Lusekofte and got really frustrated because I kept messing up and then basically gave up on the pattern. I’m knitting a Clapotis (I know!) OTN for > 1 year, and I realized I don’t really like the yarn, and I’m probably never going to wear it.
Also, I don’t have AC and it’s been a hot summer, so I haven’t been very motivated to knit. AND, I got a puppy about 2 months ago so I’ve been busy with that…
ANYWAY, this week I just got an INCREDIBLE urge to knit. I’m going to start a pair of socks (hopefully toe up, not sure what, if any, pattern yet). I also want to rip Lusekofte and use the yarn for an EZ Fair Isle yoke sweater. Hopefully I won’t have trouble following the pattern since… there is no pattern!
Anyone have any ideas for toe-up socks?
And of course, here is a pic of the little baby that stole my heart. Her name is Darcy and she is a Doberman (6 months). My other dogs Kate and Laika are in one of the photos.
I missed you guys!!!
