Easter Official Edition

It’s official!

I finished one sock and cast on the second immediately as recommended by Blogville Knitters.

Yesterday I spent most of my day binge watching Outlander and casting on. My new Arachne yarn arrived and I caught up to where I had previously knit on my ill-fated first attempt.

I love it! This yarn is Quince and Co Chickadee Heather in Sabine and Hydrangea. I looked through projects on Ravelry and someone else had used this yarn for Arachne. It’s lovely and soft and didn’t break the bank.

I also cast on Deschain yesterday. Several years ago, when I started knitting again, this was the first project I wanted to cast on. I purchased the pattern on Ravelry through my local yarn shop, which I thought at the time was fairly miraculous. I had planned to use something from my stash, but I’m glad I didn’t try it. This is also Quince and Co yarn: Kestral in Ash. I’m sewing a lantern skirt in black linen to wear with it, and I’ll probably sew a black knit tank top to wear under it as well.

It’s official! I’m gothy.

I made it to Douglas Henshall’s entrance on Outlander. Let’s face it, that’s probably the only reason I am watching it. Does it have Douglas Henshall and knitting in it? I’m in. But if I hear “Coming Through the Rye” one more time…

This weekend I thought we could “lean in” as they say, and I talked Bob into watching The Stand with me. I thought it would tick my horror box and be amusingly ironic. I forgot how truly unwatchable it is. By the end of Episode 3, I had completely lost interest, laws yes. M-O-O-N that spells Stephen King. We’re going to try The Outsider today. We enjoyed Castle Rock.

It’s official! I went outside today (to take photos for my blog)!

It’s pretty out there.

  1. I love your new yarn! The sock looks great, knit on. Reading this, I’m thinking I should cast on the mohair since it will be so light and fluffy…but then I’d have to share my needle time so maybe not…hmmmm.

  2. Ooh so many projects, they all look exciting. We’ve been slowly watching The Outsider but we’ve not a clue what’s going on and we have watched a lot of episodes πŸ˜‚. We are watching season 3 of Ozark during our dinner time, today we started the documentary series about Bill Gates. It’s the perfect antidote to having seen Tiger King a couple of weeks ago. He’s restoring my faith in the human race. πŸ˜€
