Today Is A Good Day
Blue Moon Fiber Arts; from the Raven Series, two heavy weight Ravens, Haidi and Ravenscroft. Hollyday in medium weight. All beautiful. The letters that came announced my unemployment benefits. 26 weeks. Another benefit is college. I think I will go again.
These socks are made special for my Mother In Law. She has difficult feet and just recently broke her leg. The ribbing on the leg will stretch to fit her swolleness. I brought the ribbing down the heel for a better fit under the walking cast, no bunching is allowed. Stockinette foot for the same reason. The yarn is Plymouth Suri Merino, an alpaca/merino blend. I used a size 4 dp for the leg and heel and a size 3 dp for the foot. Leg and foot are both 40 stitches.

First up is the "Villandry Lace Scarf" by Angela Roberge
The yarn used was Blue Sky Cotton, color 613 Ink. I cast on 21 stitches, size 6.0 mm needles.
This is a fun 4 row pattern. The cotton is heavy and scarf too skinny. I am going to take it apart, cast on more stitches, and try again.
Another pair of Boot SocksBasic 48 stitch boot sock
Yarn: Ella Rae, Classic - 13 Slate
- Followed the pattern exactly, except only decreased to to 32 stitches.
- Yarn: Trekking XXL color 181
These guys followed us all day!
