When I started this blog, it was partly out of interest in knitting, partly to catalogue what I knit and how I went about it, and partly because I had a lot of time on my hands. At the time, it seemed like my work load was constantly shrinking because many of the tools I use were getting faster. Between the new computer and a new printer (of my very own), the amount of time it took me to get my work done had been halved. A bit belated, my company finally caught up and gave me more work, so I no longer have so much time to kill - thankfully. I really am much happier being employed the whole day, even if I do wind up too tired at night to do much more than comfort knit.

Last night, however, I did finally finish my Earl Blue socks. Pictures will follow as soon as the weather improves. We finally been getting some much needed rain this week, but that makes for bad pictures. They are really, really soft and comfy and spiffy looking and I love them. The yarn makes a great "plain" sock, because it's not too plain but also looks good with a design in it. The only problem is, that I love them so much, I'm afraid to wear them. I don't want to ever wear them out. That would be a tragedy.


  1. I've found that the Essential yarn is really, really durable. Wear them to your heart's content!

  2. Can't wait to see pics. I just finished the socks that I have been working on. Surprisingly, I will have lots of time this coming week to knit, read and blog. My school has been closed because of the swine flu scare. There is a probable case.

  3. You've been busy! Post Arwen pics when you get finished! We spent Easter Sunday in Fresno. One of my cousins recently moved out by Woodward Park. We got sooooo lost. What the heck. I remember when Friant was the last street before Yosemite....almost.
