I’m sure this qualifies as “startitis,” but as soon as I realized that I already had the Cascade Fixation yarn needed to make the Broadripple sock pattern from Knitty, I had them on my needles. I’m not a fast knitter, but I am persistent, so you can see I’ve made progress.
You’ll also notice that I’m obviously going through a “green period”; Picasso had his “blue period” and I seem to be attracted to all the various shades of green I can find – while I was starting this sock last week, we even painted our bedroom green. Thanks to Laura Ashley paints, three of the walls are a lighter Lemongrass, and the fourth is a darker Apple 3. I feel so postmodern with a multicolored bedroom, but I am so ready for spring…and it matches my sock.
Unsure of what to do with your orphan acrylic yarn? Erin’s Afghans Plus will take your knitted afghan squares, or your leftover yarn. What a nice idea!
