Randomly on Wednesday

March 11, 2015

Greetings,

I have a few things to share with you this Wednesday. There is no real rhyme nor is there much reason to the collection so we are going to have another round of randomly on (insert day.)

Random thing the first: So I totally spaced on the fact that my blog had its birthday last week. It’s been three years since I first sat at the keyboard and thought of what to say. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to check out my collection of thoughts, and ramblings. Much appreciated. The blog is a great record of how far I have come, and how far I have yet to go. The best part of this whole thing is that I have made friends who I would probably have never even met thanks to this. So here’s to another year of musings from the Introverted Knitter.

Random thing the second: I have made more progress on my sock blanket

IMG_1192I managed to knit another “section” and have begun a new “section near the top. The blanket may end up taking forever, but for now the fun hasn’t worn off.

Random thing the third:I never showed off my very first fiber club fiber. I had saved a little money from Christmas presents and decided this would be a fun way to continue to use my gift. I decided on the Moonrover Fiber club, in part because she gives an extra ounce each month and I really love the colors she comes up with. She is the one I scored the amazing Grand Budapest Hotel colorway from back in 2014. Here is February’s offering:

It’s a superwash merino/nylon blend and aside from being soft it is a wonderful deep and bold color way. Definitely not something I would ever chose for myself, which is great because that is part of the reason I wanted to join a club. I will say the orange near the bottom is throwing me a bit.

Random thing the fourth: I am making decent progress on my March socks, considering they haven’t been getting tons of love…see the above mentioned sock blanket for reference. The whole two in tandem seems to be working fairly well, although I have to remember to actually pick up the other one to work on it. I haven’t been the greatest at that as you might be able to tell.

The bottom one seems to be getting more love and so I think I will just continue on it until I want to get to the heel and then pick the other one back up and make my way down to the heel before turning both. The cool thing about these and it may be kind of hard to see is that they seem to be striping fairly consistently. This is cool because I honestly was afraid this yarn would end up pooling in a hot mess that left me wanting to weep quietly in the corner. The kind of uncool part is that these won’t be for me. I cast them on too large so even if I wanted to keep them it wouldn’t work. (The curse of smaller feet strikes again.) Oh well.

The yarn is Knit Picks Imagination in the Giant Peach colorway and while the yarn does have peach in it I would say it has more pinks than peachy colors, so maybe it isn’t that bad that they aren’t for me.

Okay that is it for my random things today. I hope your Wednesday is going well, what kind of projects are you working on? Ever joined a fiber club? Ever knit something for a gift that you secretly wanted to keep (even if it was pink a color you didn’t always care for?)
