four-day weekend

I took Friday off from knitting, I mean working.

But, I haven't done much knitting.
I've done a lot of sleeping. Cleaning. Moving appliances. Eating potato chips and onion dip in bed while watching, "Shrinking the World's Heaviest Man." That was my dinner last night.

I started this project two Thursdays ago.

This is my second Tura Maeve.
They've made the pattern corrections since the first time I made it.
Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Sport, four skeins.
Needles: Knit Picks Circular US 4.

Just finished putting the buttons on today.

I cast on for these socks yesterday, using Argosy Luxury Yarns, Hannah Sport in Latte & Roses. I tried a lace pattern, but it didn't please me. Plus the K1, P1 ribbing was loosey-goosey.

So I ripped it out and did a twisted K1, P1 and stockinette to let the beautiful yarn colors be displayed.

Ahh much better.

Here is the yarn that my sister-in-law got me for my birthday (months ago...)!

Rio de la Plata.
She also gave me a book!

While I was buying buttons for the baby dress yesterday, I HAD to wander over to the yarn section. Lookie what I founded!

I'm thinking of making a pair of socks that I can wear with flip flops - you know, the kind with the separate big toe?!
