It's begun to be interesting again again—how or why that happens, I don't know—I wish I did! I'd bottle it—keep handy!
The socks have been sitting untouched since the weekend.. wanting just a repeat or two and a heel. But its been 60° --who needs a sweater –or socks to match the sweater? It's not like I don't have plenty enough socks as is.. (and of the two newest ones—RoyGBiv and Raspberry swirl) are still settling in (they haven't been worn yet--they are still in the Oh how I admire them pile)
I am not including a link to Ask Prudence--(she dis'd hand knit sock recently) she doesn't need (or warrant) any more web traffic!
Pattern purdah continues. I have lots and lots of patterns that I have been finishing up. Ravelry is such a convenience –a free consignment shop for selling them.
The newest pattern is another one designed with scrap yarn in mind—and its a free-be!

A simple little beanie—with a small stranded work motif. Just 8 rows of patterning—if you've never done stranded work—a chance to try.
I am a bit hard nosed –and don't get all gushy about cutesy patterns—This hat wouldn't be a first choice for me (to wear) but I would wear it. There is something about stranded work that is slightly sophisticated, even when its a simple iconic motif.
