As I hinted at last week, I’ve got a new pair of socks underway. Not that its a great surprise. After casting off Rowan’s itty bitty thunderstruck socks, I decided that it would be fun if she had a pair that matched her sister, as well as her Mom and Dad.
Of course, Paisley’s birthday isn’t until December. But Rowan’s is in June. But if I want to use leftovers from Paisley’s that means I’ve got to get them on (and off) the needles asap!
Yes, once again it’s Felici. This colourway is from last year and it’s called Summer Camp. The pattern is “I Smell Snow” – a freebie on Ravelry. It’s simple, with just a touch of interest to keep things moving. These probably won’t be on the needles very long.
And in an aside, something happened last week that gives me just a little bit of hope that one day I may see that missing shipment from Knit Picks.
Last Tuesday, this showed up in the mail:
A Christmas card from Vera! As you can see from the post mark – she mailed it on December 1, 2020! It took a full FOUR months to get to me. I had a good giggled when I opened it. The poor postal service must have been having a really hard time – she’s less than an 8 hour drive from me!
So… Merry April Vera! Thanks for the card!
