I got my Windowpane Sock posted to the July sockdown thread in time! Here it is:
But now that I know the first part of the cuff really really well, I’m setting it aside to work on other things. I’m seeing if this hat will work up in some Berroco Comfort I have left over from another project. I’d like to be able to wear it to a concert on Wednesday. (I don’t leave the house without a head-scarf, for reasons of an unfortunate genetic/hormonal nature involving my hair, but I thought a ballcap sort of thing would make me fit in better than my usual headscarves, which are more likely to give away the fact that the band was in elementary school the last time I went to a concert.)
Another tempting project is Vilai, which an August Cookie A knitalong selection. I didn’t look twice at it in Sock Innovation, but people on Ravelry have made much better yarn choices to show off how nice it really is. I’ve got some Dream In Color Starry that I think might be nice for it (but I want to use the Starry for something really good, so if you know of a pattern where the sparkles of silver would be more appropriate, please do suggest it!) I’ve got the Circle socks and Windowpane socks to finish in August, though, so maybe I should cool it with new sock cast-ons.
Shepherd’s pie for dinner tonight. We’re going to turn the AC down and pretend it’s winter.
