Though yesterday was the official kickoff for the River Stole, I really didn’t want to start it until I finished these babies up. These were pretty easy and quick to knit up and it only took one skein (since I didn’t care if they matched up or not). I only wish that book publishers weren’t so cheap when it comes to printing charts. Would it have been that hard to also print up the left armwarmer one? I really like the Diakeito, it’s really soft and the colors stripe in a nice, soft way.
Did you notice that bright yarn up above? I finally broke down and got some Vesper Sock Yarn in Aqua Melon. They are destined to be some funky, yet simple socks for yours truly. I was hoping for a colorway with pink and brown, but no such luck. Just pink and lime, blue and orange, and the “knit and tonic” one, which is pretty but I would feel a little weird knitting something up in someone else’s blog colors. There’s something groupish about that.
Tonight the boy and I will be driving up to his parent’s house for the loooong weekend. I’ll be taking the beginnings of River and the yarn for the second caribbean sock. I’ll try to blog while we are up there, but I always go up with such plans and somehow I never get to do any of them. Wish me luck!
