Just a couple of photos from my yard.
I think it's the last of the snow, and it'll probably be gone in a day or two. I'm actually enjoying it. The only downside is it can't use my grill. I can't even get out the side door right now.
Onto the knitting content. I haven't made any progress on the gusset from hell. I need to force myself to pick it up again. Perhaps at knitting group. The pleasant company will distract me from inane repetitive stitchery. I just need it done.
I have (just about) finished my one and only sport-weight argyle sock. I still need to weave in the trillion ends, but since I'll never wear it, what's the point?
I am definitely going to make a pair of argyles in a thinner weight. Just not right now. I have to finish Tote 'Em before I can think about any new projects. Speaking of new projects, somebody talk me out of knitting Rusted Root
, because I can't stop thinking about it, and I promised the Boy a red sweater.
Along with the Tote 'Em bag, I'm also working on the We Call Them Pirates
hat in red and cream for the boy. Instead of a provisional cast on and a knitted liner, I'm just going to line the whole thing in fleece once it's done. I'm thinking he'll wear this one next year anyway.
For anyone interested, the yarn is Tove
And lastly, yesterday I took the girl for an actual haircut. It was getting really unruly. Her before:
And, because I'm instituting an equal-time policy, one of the handsome Boy:
No haircut or anything. Just enjoying the New England Aquarium.
