Socks and Taxes

Little bit of progress on the Cascading Leaves. I'm on Row 7 of the first pattern repeat. One thing I'm finding kind of discouraging is that it's difficult to know if you're doing it correctly because the pattern takes so long to emerge.

I did, however, take the advice of a very smart knitter and wrote each pattern line on an index card, then looped them together. It seems to be working well for me.

I was working on these this afternoon while my business partner was working on our tax return, which, as everyone knows, is so very dull. So I made some progress and plan to work on it more this evening.


And, just for fun, a photo of my sock yarn stash. I've got pale blue Cascade Fixation, more Regia self-striping, in blues this time, and pink, white, and black self-striping, which I think will be really fun to work on.

All this yarn, plus the green baby cashmerino, is so tempting, but I'm really trying to stay focused on Cascading Leaves.

Love the blog but need more nekkid ladys.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet my husband. I was hoping to keep him out of this, for obvious reasons.

Just kidding, honey!

I dunno who the ladeee is; but I know her husband. His name is Buck. Buck Naked.
