Okay, I'm knitting. Albeit slowly. But I am knitting. The dyeing business has been going great guns, with all kinds of special orders and friendly knitters on the other end of the email (y'all make it so much fun). I am a lot more organized now, so I can take time out to do other things from time to time.
I'm knitting Shui Kuen's beautiful shawl Moonlight Sonata. A bunch of us are doing a KAL, and I'm glad. That's probably going to keep me on track. I'm determined to finish this project and then, one at a time, catch up on some of my other recently abandoned knitting projects. How fun that I get to knit this project in some of my own Blueberry Semi-Solid yarn. I'm convinced that I bought this yarn from someone else 'cuz I can't really believe it was me.
Not to tempt overly, but you know how it is around here. I've been outed as a yarn dealer/pusher/enabler, and I might as well embrace the role. It seems to be the truth. Just keep in mind that I am in the same boat as everyone else when it comes to my...um...habit. I dyed up two skeins of the Washable Sport (80%merino/20%nylon) sock yarn in case anyone would like to knit up some Blueberry socks (one skein'll do ya) or a Moonlight Sonata Shawl (you'll need both). They are in the shop until they go, but I can do more. Got this colorway down cold now. See how rich it came out in this particular yarn:
I've finally settled on a name for this colorway. I started out calling it Manly, Yes...and then Irish Spring (manly yes..), and then Earth and Sky. This is the colorway I'm knitting Doug's socks in, and yesterday I figured out how to repeat it.
I am officially naming it: SHORELINE TRAIL. The colours remind me so much of the colours I see while walking at my favorite place (almost) in the whole world (except for Tofino).
Shoreline Trail is the only name that will do, don't you think? I've listed four skeins of this in Quebecoise over at the shop.
