Yesterday in the mail I received this beautiful skein of hand-dyed sock yarn from Liz of MacKintosh Yarns. It's a new base yarn that she's trying out and she asked me to knit up a pair of socks to see how well the yarn wears. How could I say no to that?
So yesterday I swatched, got gauge, and knit a toe. It was my first short-row toe. I quite enjoyed it.
I plan on turning these into Anne Hanson's Regatta Socks. (I hope that's ok, Liz!)
I have also completed a sleeve on my Expedition Pullover and my goal for tonight is to finish the collar.
Now that a sleeve is done and I've tried it on, I'm really excited to finish this sweater. (Sorry it's taking so long, Todd!)
I also had a 4am love affair with my Fernfrost, but that didn't last for very long because I was tired and eventually went and reclaimed my bed. There wasn't enough progress to show here.
...and I'll leave you now with the last of my colorful fall photos. Unfortunately most of the trees here are bare now, I took these pictures over the past couple of weeks.
Ooh, and on that note, I gotta go! My school's concerto competition finals begin in less than an hour and I'm supposed to be playing in them - better warm up! Happy knitting everyone. (and happy November!)
