I have to say I really like the way it turned out. This yarn is gorgeous! It's madelinetosh tosh merino light and I held the yarn double to get it to be closer to a worsted which is what I think the other squares are closer to. This square is destined for the UK. It will join a bunch of others to make a blanket to cheer a guy going through a difficult medical treatment.
So I finished that and there was still time to knit so lucky I had brought this other project. This project was giving me trouble. First I wound the ball myself from hanks of yarn and it is horrid. So I stuffed it into that mesh thing to keep from coming all apart. I'm debating buying a ball winder. But! It works so don't really need one.
So, I had actually started this sock at the beginning of September. The yarn is a colorway called Albus Dumbledore and it's beautiful. And I have a copy of the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits magazine that has a pattern for Dumbledore warm socks in it. I had originally thought it would be perfect to knit that pattern with that yarn since they were both Dumbledore. But! I felt the pattern to be sort of tedious. And I think it's just me. If I had maybe given it more of a go it could have worked out but I was starting to avoid it. I cast on a different project just to do something different. I realized yesterday I was being ridiculous. So I ripped back to before the stitch pattern and started the Hermione Everyday stitch pattern, which incidentally I had just modified for the square above! And I've gotten like 2 inches since last night! hurrah!
It's becoming very much Fall here so I am wanting to have more warm woolly socks to wear. I did wear my plum medley socks this week. They were delightful :) one is a tad longer but no biggie.
P.S. my coffee pot is on the fritz and I think I have to finally give in and buy a new one....ugggg. It took an hour today to coax out one cup!!!! Tragedy. A nice cuppa coffee is such a joy to me in the morning so I must remedy this situation STAT!
