We are back to another wonderful Sunday afternoon. I have chicken in the slow cooker for tacos tonight and with it a yummy Mango Avocado salsa I made sitting in the fridge. I can’t wait for dinner. But its only 3:45 so I have to.
On the knitting front, I am in the middle of the gusset of the second Bavarian Cable sock. I have been knitting it while I finish binge watching Gilmore Girls, I have been steadily watching the whole series for several months and I want to finish before I watch Orange is the New Black. As you know, Season 3 came out on Friday and it has taken all the restraint I have not to watch it. But I am almost through Season 6 of Gilmore Girls, so not much left. Maybe OITNB next weekend.
Yesterday, I went to my LYS, Gourmet Yarn in Oklahoma City and bought yarn for my Rhinebeck Sweater. I am so EXCITED!!!! I am not going to tell you what yarn I got or what the pattern is until I have it cast on. I don’t know, it’s a thing of mine. I don’t like to reveal what I am going to work on until I actually have it cast on. Its like knitting superstition or something, like I might jinx it. But I am very excited about it. I think I will cast it on after I finish the socks because I am not sure how long it is going to take me and I do have a deadline. I needs to be done my Rhinebeck. Yes, I am aware that is months away but still…
It does seem weird to me that summer just started and I am about to knit a sweater, but it must get done. Then I guess after that I can do some actual “summer knitting”.
I also have so many other projects I want to knit up. Need to knit up. I need knit and make room in my stash before I go. The thought kind of stresses me out, but it makes me more excited. And really, can one have too much yarn? I don’t think so.
And with that I will leave you. Its a short post I know but I’m kind of excited to get back to my sock knitting so I can start on the sweater.
I will talk to you all next week. Happy knitting!
