Look! Knitting!

After getting caught out with no knitting while having to wait around for tow trucks the other day, one of the first things I did when we got home was go dig out a skein of yarn and cast on.

While most of my time has, unsurprisingly, been eaten up by house stuff, I have tried to take an hour or so each night to chill and do a little stitching. As a result…

TThe yarn is deep stash… it was missing the ball band, and I can’t remember the brand. I do recall that it was a handpainted yarn, the colours was called Butterscotch, and it’s sport weight… but beyond that, everything else is blank. The pattern is Oyster Ridge. It’s very easy – a four row repeat, and only one of those rows has pattern. It is, however, one of those patterns that looks better stretched out on a foot.

Such pretty little shells! I have the second one started, but it’s being set aside as travel knitting for now. I have a deadline project I have to get started on!

    What a lovely pattern! Good for you being able to find some time to knit again. I bet it’s so hard to carve out time for yourself when there is so much to do.

    That is such a beautiful sock! The pattern is wonderful (and appropriately named) and the color is so pretty. If it was fabric, I would call it a blender because it looks like it will go with almost everything. Yay for you getting some knitting time.
