Okay… so I said I had to get back to the poncho, and I have… but I also needed a travel project on the needles.
When I visit Sam and family in the middle of the month, her husband remarked that the socks I had made him many, many moons ago (way back in 2016), had finally developed a hole.
I guess it’s time for a new pair.
Since spring is still ages away (as you can see by the hens and chicks in my poor little bird cage), I went with something bright and cheery to keep me excited. It’s a skein of Barn Cat in in “Laguna” – a wild swirl of aqua and green with pops of bright Mediterranean blue.
Nothing fancy in pattern – just a simple 3-1 rib. His birthday is at the end of March, so I’m hoping I can finish them before then. But…. poncho MUST come first! I want that bad boy off the needles by the end of February at the latest!
