Multi-tasking

Despite the Knitting APB in the last blog post, the sock bag remains lost.  Fortunately, I dyed two skeins, so with the remaining skein and a sale on wood needles at Bluebird Yarn and Fiber last night, so the sock project is entering its Take 2 phase:

I will need some mindless knitting this coming week, because if all goes well, I will be clearing out my Mom’s house, closing on it, and moving a few of the needed and treasured items (using movers, not me).  A vanilla sock sounds like just the ticket, especially Afghans for Afghans has announced another youth campaign with amazing partners on the ground in Afghanistan and to help ship the items.

One of my friends in crisis deserves a comfort knit, so I’ve also started a Traveling Woman shawl in Malabrigo Sock yarn in the Rayon Vert colorway, which has some of my friend’s favorite colors:

And my awesome cousin who spent a week of her life helping me to clean out my Mom’s house of all the household goods is getting a Twist Cardigan for Christmas – in Dream in Color Classy yarn:

I did finish my project with the new Brooklyn Tweed yarn Shelter, and I promise I will write more when I’ve got the focus for it.

  1. Such a shame about those socks! Maybe they’ll turn up yet.

    It’s cool that MCC is taking care of the shipping for A4A this time. I’m ethnically Mennonite (even went to a Menno school for college) and know a LOT of people – family members, college friends, etc – who did or are doing voluntary service with MCC. It’s a solid organization.

  2. I love the colour of the sock yarn.

    I am just starting on the lace section of a traveling woman shawl. I love it so far.

    Loving the twist cardigan.
