After a bit of a hiatus, I've been knitting pretty regularly again.
Last Saturday I spent a good deal of time knitting my Girasole blanket. I'm totally in love with this project again and bummed that it isn't very portable. It takes me about 30 minutes to knit a plain row and 45-60 minutes to knit a lace row. I don't mind...I love it anyway.
This past week I brought my Leyburn Socks to work a few times and finished most of foot #1. I went to visit friends yesterday, a trip that involved several hours on Amtrak trains and in waiting areas. By the time I got home last night I had finished the heel :)
Though I'm loving the way this sock is turning out, the pattern leaves something to be desired (at least for me). The instructions are kind of bare-bones and I had to resort to Googling on my phone to figure out how to do the heel… I had to fudge it in a couple places but think I did ok. Woohoo! 25% done with this project!
While I was in Philly, I visited Loop and bought myself some souvenir yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino in a beautiful purple.
