Looming Ahead

Hello internet!

I’ve not been posting properly lately.  I used to think that posting every three days was reasonable, and I really got it done – but then, the past two weeks happened.  I got a job serving, and wouldn’t you know that I worked 97 hours last week (plus other commitments doing other things).  Not only did I not knit very much, but I also barely managed to keep eating properly.  It wasn’t a winning couple of weeks chez nous.  But!  I did finish those Belle Epoque socks.

I decided to disregard the pattern instructions and knit the lace pattern down to the toe.  I did that by decreasing until the 1×1 rib was used up, and then I started decreasing the faux cable.  I think it worked out really nicely, and I’m glad I listened to my gut.  They fit perfectly, and the yarn is really nice and light.

I’m pretty pleased with the finished project regardless of my previous grumpiness.  I’m pleased I don’t have to knit on it anymore!

In other super exciting news, guess what I’m going to do with this yarn after Friday?

Why, yes!  That is Hemp for Knitting from Lana Knits in Sprout and Olive colourways!  How did you know?

I’m going to purchase (get this) a Cricket loom this Friday.  Come hell or high water – I’m so, so excited!  I’m going to use the lighter green for the warp and the darker green for the weft.

  1. Good to see you around these parts! The sock modifications look great!
    Also, good choice. I love Hemp for Knitting, especially after one or two washes. I’m still only admiring the Cricket loom from afar, so I’m looking forward to seeing how it works out!

  2. I haven’t seen you in awhile! Cool socks! You’ll have to wear them and bring your loom to the Plateau so we can hang out in the park (it’s portable, right?) :). Sonya and I would love to watch you weave your lovely hemp. Would you like to come over for brunch on Saturday? Send me an e-mail if you’re free!
