I had a wonderful evening with the sock. It sounds odd but really, I did spend the evening with a sock. Made dinner, talked with mom, ate, left dishes for others, went to sit and work, Mr Needles went off to do his own thing (GOLF TV), so there I was in peaceful quiet splendor, with no one expecting me to do or be and boy did I need that. Me and the yarn. Perfection. My delight continues over this wonderful yarn. Knitpicks Pallette is wonderful stuff.
I finally got the last of my yarn from the recent spate of mail orders. Rowan Bamboo Tape. Soft, like pure silk, only better. A reviewer says it was lovely to work with, and that it grows when wet and more when dried. SO I guess I will too be swatching this yarn, and doing it right. And then I will have to consult with an ally who shall remain nameless with respect to sizing.
Oh what a tangled fabric I weave... Dear heavens what am I saying?!!
