Take a Hike


In honor of the Trek Along With Me which starts today, I stole a needle from the Padded Footlet and made a swatch. Hooray! Color is 105 and I plan on making a Chevron-type sock as shown in Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. (What a cool book! Highly recommend it.) I will also be trying the "Forethought Heel". Rock on.

In other thoughts....why didn't I think of knitting a lace shawl over the winter months? I totally want one, and how perfect would that be going from 80+ degrees outside to the freezing AC inside? Must knit a season ahead. Duh.

Once again, great colors! What is this freezing a/c you speak of? Ours is barely keeping me from melting into the couch....but a shawl sounds like a nice idea for early fall too.

Lovely color!

I have a seasonal problem with knitting, too. It's a tough balance. I just made a winter hat. Which means, it'll be ready when winter comes. But I can't use it now! I'm not sure whether to knit summer stuff now when I can wear it right away, or to stockpile for the winter....

The colour is so pretty, I love how it blends so beautifully from one to the other.
