Then, I got to rip into the April kit! The yarn is absolutely dreamy - a merino/silk blend. The pattern has a lacy, open leg which is perfect for spring weather. I'm itching to cast on, BUT... I don't own a ball winder :-( It's on my list for Saturday errands now! I need to swatch because I saw a comment on the club blog that the pattern is running large. I had so much fun with the first short row toes and heels, that I may try them again. WOW - my fourth pair of socks and I'm already modifying...definitely "Walking on the Wild Tide"!!! OK, I will admit that my design decisions are based on the fact that I don't have room in my budget for 2 sets of circular needles, which the pattern technique calls for!
Since the sock project is on hold for a day or so, I pulled out the Orange Delight and finished the borders. I think it came together nicely, and Gidget approves too! Now I have to decide on a quilting pattern. I have some ideas for custom work floating around my head, but I'm also in a time crunch so maybe I'll just use a pantograph. Although I could use the practice with custom free-hand quilting...(can you tell I'm a Libra?!?)
And finally, I noticed that Baby K's 5th tooth is showing through her bottom gums. We've said all along that she's a super-advanced baby...she's just 8 and a half months old. She's always on the move nowadays!
OH YEAH...this is a reminder to see my April 26th post (Audience Participation) for a contest!!!
