Sunday was a raceday (French Grand Prix) so the sock came out of hiding to be knit upon. Next week is going to need a new sock because all there is to go on this pair is a cuff! Races are good for simple sock knitting but there was lots of other really rewarding knitting too.
My version of the Cascadas Tee saw the most wonderful progress.
I have finished the lace yoke and have just split for the sleeves. An inch or two of knitting on the body and it is try on time. I hold great hope for this top.
I am so happy I went with the lace for with this yrn. It is so crisp on the lines in the lace. I am really looking forward to seeing it blocked.
And my second top from the Summer Snowflakes Top pattern, the one with the little daisy lace, is a row shy of the final increase before splitting.
I did a lot of knitting today and all the while I stared at the sample card of Harrisville that I ordered from Camilla Valley Farms a few weeks ago. I love the yarn and I love the colours. I think after these summer sweaters, I am going to put Myrtle on the front burner again, just to be able to knit with and play with the colours of the Harrisville. I may be under a spell of some sort. I hated to put the card away again.
Summer is here. The yarn stores are almost done their fall yarn orders. Time to start knitting fall sweaters? Maybe, but maybe not.
