Purl Soho Cedar Stripe Sock #2 Progress
I'm on the second sock of the striped pair of socks I've been working on:
There's a subtle difference in these colors from the same dyelot, but I like it. In general, I still enjoy the custom-colored striping yarns in spite of the crap-shoot that is Lorna's Laces hand-dyed yarns. You just really never know how much or how little Lorna's Laces will pool, so I've decided to think of it as charming (and if I had any OCD tendencies, the quirky yarn would drive me over the edge).
As much as I am really itching to work on something more substantial -- a more challenging knitting project, I am totally unable to do that right now. However, there is immense comfort in sock-knitting and it's easily transported, so that's ideal for me during my rapidly-diminishing summer.
A big thank you to my readers for not taking personally anything I said in my blog entry yesterday regarding the dynamics of blog commenting. I enjoy all my comments and commenters and try to reply to each one of them. When a knitter asks questions regarding projects on my blog, or knitting questions in general, I take the time to craft a response as soon as I possibly can. I knit and blog because I enjoy it and I will continue to have a knitting blog as long as I'm knitting. And truly, It's a miniscule part of my blog readership that aren't knitters. The rare comments that frustrate me are typically from non-knitters who stop by and that's when I use my comment moderating power. This blog and its comments will possibly outlast me and I still consider a well-placed, constructive comment to be a gift of a reader's effort and time. So, thank you.
