sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Hey Alison, lookie here!

After I posted yesterday, what with the a/c out and all, I did do a little cotton crocheting. See?
This will be the project to use up leftover cottons and acrylics. Yes, i still use some, rarely, and I have a couple balls left over from days of yore, as well.

But, here is the big news.
Riddle me this: What’s small enough to knit in oppressive heat?
What’s black and white and red all over?
A picture being worth a thousand words, I present to you:
These feel so good. I’ll give them a wash today, and then pet them until I have to send them to I can’t say her name out loud. I lover them! The cuffs, heels and toes were made with Bebe Lang superwash, and the rest with Fortissima Colori in 2407. The cuff pattern can be found on p.80 of Folk Socks by Nancy Bush. The toes and heels are shirt-row garter stitch, which is explained in Lucy Neatby’s Cool Socks ~Warm Feet. I’ll get a pair in exchange though, and I already have the b/w cuff and red leg of one opposite sock made.

Now, the rest of the day, I need to work on the pants i could not touch yesterday. I also need to clean (that’s perpetual). My kitchen has been justthisshort of really clean for a couple weeks now. I need to finish up the nagging details, eh? And school, and regular chores, etc.
