Here it is July 25th, and I think we've had a total of seven minutes sunlight all Q@#$#^# month.
I'm not a heat lover, but really!
Maybe that's what's put me back into the Blues.
Slate Blue, fresh out of the dye room, in my own 75/25 Wool Nylon fingering weight.
This is another colour in the same syndrome as the Chestnut Brown... I keep dyeing it but I don't know where it goes!
Huron and Deep Huron
I knit up a few pair of size Medium socks with the new batches of Huron and Deep Huron I dyed last week:
And, here is another Medium pair...
I still have more cakes of blue (awkward phrase to avoid saying blue balls)wound from the last assault, and I'll try to knit them off the table next week.
I've got to get that Yarn In Waiting table cleared off as I have a (long) list of things I want to get knit for the Summerfolk Music and Artisan Festival in mid-August...and that is quickly sneaking up on me.
Yarn Geek was asking if I use row counters on my sock machines.
I got so used to counting semi out loud - almost under my breath - that it is second nature.
I do have a counter on my skein winder, similar to what Yarn Geek described, and I find I still count along out of habit. I'd be more inclined to rely on it if it were a fancy set up that actually stopped winding when it hit the magic number, but that's way-y-y-y too fancy for my humble set up ;o)
