It’s nearly 11 pm and I’m beat. We went away for a few days to a house on the Russian River, just about 12 miles inland from Jenner.  It was nice to get out of here, ditch all expectations, and just relax. I brought my knitting, of course, and honestly, its about the only thing I did besides listen to music and watch Poirot. I had a new sock pattern I wanted to test out, to see if it might just be “the one” for my sockapalooza socks. It is the Lilac sock by Jeanie Townsend. I cast on one sock, did the ribbed cuff and two pattern repeats in a few hours of alone time on Sunday. I like it so far. I think I’ll have to complete the sock to tell if it is “the one” though. I am knitting it in a solid blue, in the KnitPicks Gloss, merino and silk blend. I think it will look good in the new Shepherd Sock Red multi I just ordered. If this isn’t  “it”,  the search will continue. Good thing there is still plenty of time before August 2!

In other knitting news, I also worked on the Hearts and Stars blankie, which is now about 1/2 way through the second set of charts. I like it more all the time. In a way, its kind of like knitting an endless washcloth! The Estonian scarf did not see much action in recent days. Remember, black laceweight is NOT the project for KUIE!


  1. Oooh, Russian River, how nice! Plus Poirot and knitting…bonus!!

    Can’t wait to see pictures of the socks in progress.
