me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Which is better - A footless sock or a sockless foot?

I really like it when Blogger images look better than the real thing! In this case, you see the good side of my current sock; the other side has some weirdness at the heel flap/gusset area from where I carried along the unused blue yarn. Also, even though the Addi Turbos are fantabulous, I still have a laddering problem where the 2 needles join. I guess I need to go back and find the sites where I read about this problem before -- and more importantly, The Solution!

I have finished the decreases and can now just knit away for length until I go back to blue and the toe shaping ....

But I'm a little bored with this now.

Fickle, fickle me, Mavis.

I have been paging through the current Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, and the catalogs from Knit Picks and Webs. I'm also having daydreams about some groovy yarn that I bought in Fredericksburg, but ...

I can't find it ...

except in this blog entry ... sigh ...

Yesterday, we had some real Spring weather here in MerryLand! I found myself at our little rental house painting porch railings, and it was so warm that I ended up in just a t-shirt after peeling off lawyers as the sun hit my work area. That was balm for the soul.

Today, we are in overcast gloominess with rain -- Perfect Knitting Weather!
