I haven’t decided what to cast on after finishing Hemlock Ring, so when I have had a few minutes to knit, I’ve just been adding rows to the socks I’m making for Dave’s Mom for Christmas.
I’m around the heel and passed the gusset now and you can really see the wild colours of this yarn. As a reminder it’s Kroy Socks in Dad’s Jacquard. I don’t have to worry that Kroy balls are light on yardarge here because Dave’s Mom has small feet – they are even smaller than mine!
Working on the sock is a nice bit of colourful cheer as I await spring. I know some of you are already seeing the first signs, but it’s Been pretty darn cold here (below freezing most days), with snow off and on. It’s supposed to be balmy and spring-like today, but then they are calling for snow and freezing rain tomorrow!
I checked on my bulb box the other day, and there were no signs of life (the soil is still frozen solid), though Facebook told me at this time last year I had daffodils and crocuses sprouting already.
Soon enough though… time marches on and spring will arrive!
