I admit… I’ve been neglecting the barnyard cardigan. The heat and humidity have returned. And even though the A/C is on, it’s still not nice to sit there with a pile of stinky, smelly, itchy wool in your lap.
Instead, my knitting time has been focused on Dave’s birthday socks. The first one is done. As mentioned, the pattern is Petty Harbour, and it’s a nice repetitive pattern that creates a lovely bit of texture. It doesn’t show up so well when knitting, but when the sock is stretched out on a foot, or blocker, it’s much more apparent.
While socks are great, I still have to think of something else for his birthday. I had tickets for us to go see Guns n’ Roses on July 13th, but thanks to COVID, it’s been postponed, and will likely be cancelled altogether.
