Yarn Porn, B.O. and Chatty Hubby

Artsie fartsie shot of Cristina's yarn before I make 2 center pull balls out of it and mail it to her. As I mentioned to Cristina, the shot location was picked because 1) if you look at the very highest point of the yarn in the picture, that is about the location of my house, and 2) the little park where I took the pic is the farthest upstream that Lewis and Clark traveled up the Columbia River on their trek west. (I just noticed that Cristina started her blog with these very same facts!!)

If anyone has tried and true patterns for DK weight, toe up socks that take under 260 yards of yarn, please pass on suggestions to Cristina and I. Or for that matter any top downs that would look great in the yarn above!!

Now that I finally tried knitting lace, I think duh what took me so long?? Simply Lovely Sock number 2 was started last night. I am on about pattern repeat number 3. So, I've decided that my next lace project is going to be B.O. (the Branching Out Scarf). Dave claimes to have just the perfect yarn for it in his stash, which I don't doubt. My goal is to make it for Mom for Mom's Day.

I am only on pattern repeat number 3 because I swear I spent more time de-knitting than knitting last night. Dave was in a chatty mood last night (he wasn't knitting) and I found that I couldn't multi-task watching American Idol, knitting lace and holding up my end of the conversation all while entertaining the cats. I can usually only do 3 out of 4 of those at a time. Dave will be on travel for the next two weeks so I can concentrate!!! (ha ha ha)
