The oil spill catches fire?
There is an oil volcano?
An oil hurricane?
I finished my bee socks a couple of weeks ago. They are loosely knit on size two needles because the two prior pairs I had made with Lornas Laces shrunk a bit. My gauge with socks lately has kept me on my toes in that my old "go to" formula no longer works. Where a size 2 or even 3 needle gave me a beautiful firm fabric, I am now having to knit with 1s, 0s and even bought 00s just in case.
My mom was down a couple weeks ago and shyly mentioned darning her socks. Living in Maine, she wears them pretty much 11 months out of the year. I had no idea her sock stash was so low so brought her my sock wool. She happily chose several skeins and I am excited to make her something she truly enjoys. I love being a knitter.
Lotus Blossoms, finally finished after ignoring it for a year. Great Adirondack Yarn Co., silk, color Hydrangea and mailed to my aunt this morning for her many kindnesses to me over the years.
I've about had it with triangular shawls for a while! Casting on for an EZ pie shawl as soon as I get some downtime.
