For now, at least, I have put aside Owls and mostly worked on other things. I will eventually make myself one of the sweaters and as soon as I know sizing I will be putting one more in my Christmas queue, but for today I have socks in progress.
Sock Knitters Anonymous on Ravelry has monthly projects. This month is mosaic and/or slipped stitch knitting. I have knit lace socks, plain socks, cabled socks but never a mosaic sock so I jumped right in and joined the party. For those of you not on Ravelry, Keep on Knitting in the Free World has made the charts of this month's mystery knit along available on her blog. It is very fitting for a mystery knit along to be called Miss Marple!
Jade Sapphire makes a sock yarn, and although it knits up very nicely and has great stitch definition it doesn't scream decadence when you wear it. Their Mongolian Cashmere 4ply however does!!! It is probably a little too delicate for hard wearing socks, but the halo and the hand make it hard to resist in a truffles and wine kind of way. :)
On a more serious note....today is Veteran's Day. Like many others, to those currently or previously in the military I must say Thank You!
