I finished up sock one for dad, though I think the foot might be a little short so I'm going back to it tonite, and am going to work another half inch or so before I do the toe. I worked on my sister's socks, and made very very good progress. I'm onto the calf on those and I really hope to make it to the ribbing before the end of the day.
I dug through the stash and don't know what to start next. In that whole pile of pleasing yarn, I could find nothing pleasing at all. I pulled out some of the Meillenweit , and some yellow yarn for socks, but I'm not sure I really want to start on those.
To be 100% truthful, what I really want to do is start on the vest project. I really want to see these marvelous colours grow into something. My hands reach for it just to touch it, my eyes go to it each time I enter the study.
This is not a really great picture of it. The teals, and turquoises are really much richer, much more vibrant than in this photo, and the pumpkin and mustard colours less vibrant.
I'm certain that I could start there if I wanted to, but I really want to get the lace project done before I start on any other big time commitments. I'm going to be good. I'm going to proceed logically and deliver the gift so long promised first. Its not like I can't resist the pull of the new before I fully appreciate the wonderful lace. I'm going to only think of lace.
Lace, lace, lace.
