Is a great website and an amazing time sucker. My other big time sucker has been yarn untangling the yarn I dyed came out of it's rinse cycle a huge and gigantic mess and now it's in a ball and knitting is ready to be started. Well once Bayerische is finished it's only been since June so I'm sure it will be finished pretty soon. The second sock has gone by easily but it's still slow going, it doesn't seem like it's nearly as hard to knit as the first one was but they are never-ending.

More Stash

So this past weekend I made another trip to the Fold. Toni helped me get the wheel I got at the beginning of summer back in working order. I also bought some Merino to practice with. I took my spinning class over a year ago and definitely need more practice.

I also picked up some more STR mediumweight (Carbon Dating) and some Blue Moon Silk Thread which I've found is too fine for the intended project but I like it so I'm going to try to make it work.

I bought a new pink counter - I wanted another one that locked and this one is bigger than the mini green Clover one I have so that's nice.

I also bought a miscellany of needles that I needed more of...

Tonight I also finished my Red Scarf Project which needs to be mailed off tomorrow, hopefully during my lunch break at work. I used the famed twisted stockinette stitch made famous be the pidge. I also got a full repeat of chart A done on Bayerische just a million left to go.

So I took Bayerische to meetup last night and came home with 4 less rows of knitting then I started with... that's not the kind of progress I was looking for. I started knitting row 5 and realized that it was just wrong I switched charts B&D and then switched back and then swapped again for maximum sock wrongness : )
So I think the lesson I've learned from this is I can't knit Bayerische at meetup anymore. I need to come up with an easy project or at least easier than Bayerische and more portable than the rug with 3 lb cones of yarn to bring along...

Back to my regularly scheduled knitting

I don't know why I'm such a sucker for knitting Christmas stockings but I just finished making 2 and am getting ready to send them off to GA so I'm excited about that. Now I have to go back to Bayerische which I think I started in July and it's now October.
I am also reworking the sleeves on the peapod baby sweater to lengthen them so my niece can get another season out of the sweater.
I feel pretty relieved to have this big project of 2 stockings done in 4 weeks!
I'm just hoping that I can finish Bayerische by the end of this month...
