This is a bad start to a month of blogging daily again! Oh well. I was in Boston last week remounting Becky Shaw, which we originally did in NYC at the end of 2008. (Side note: if you’re 35 or younger you get an amazing discount to all shows at the Huntington Theatre - I think the program is called ‘35 Below‘). But I’m home now and it feels so good to be back in my apartment even though I stayed in a lovely hotel up there!
Despite my best intentions during the Ravelympics, the only project I managed to finish in February was a pair of socks I knit for a friend as a (late) holiday present…
With about half the second foot done, I realized I would not have enough yarn to finish…! I seached ravelry to see if anyone had leftovers that I could buy instead of an entire second ball as I didn’t love the yarn and didn’t want a bunch left to have to use up…
ravelry user GreenGrassCarol came to my rescue with nearly half a ball in the same dyelot - and she refused payment for either the yarn or postage - thanks again Carol! Someone recently messaged me about the price of a different ball in my stash and it felt great to be able to pay the kindness forward and send it to her no charge!
yarn: Noro Silk Garden Sock, color S8
needles: 2mm dpns
started: 15 September 2009
completed: 11 February 2010
notes: I should have knit these with bigger needles as the fabric was quite stiff. And that would have made the yardage go further and I probably wouldn’t have run out of yarn… oh well.
