Well it would seem that posting about not feeling like I have a lot to post about has inspired me to set to work on some things to show you all. I have made some progress on my July socks and I figured it might be worth a peek.

This was taken last night and so the lighting is a bit different from natural light, but I think that you can at least see the way the colors are playing together in the sock. As with the other Sweet Georgia socks this is a variegated skein that is pooling in a bit of a corkscrew pattern. While I am a big big fan of self striping yarn and I would love for these colors to be in nice neat stripes, I am simply loving the way they are combing.

This sock is reminding me just how much I love Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock yarn, you may remember this was the yarn that caused me to go out and buy a second skein of the stuff before I had even finished my first pair. This is also the yarn that I used to make a pair of socks for the Giant out of the same colorway that I used for a pair for me (aka two skeins bought separately out of the same colorway for two different pairs of socks.) If you would have asked me before if there was a way (aside from self striping) that could cause me to enjoy this yarn more, I wouldn’t have been able to think of anything, but now that I am knitting with size US 0 (2.0 mm) I find myself even more in love. The yarn is knitting up into a nice dense little sock of squishy wonderfulness that it is all I can do to try the thing on as is right now. I can definitely see the appeal of knitting with the smaller needles, simply for the squish factor. It feels like a soft dense cloud, but still with a bit of springiness to it.

The sock itself is progressing well considering it is only the third of the month, I have been knitting on it fairly exclusively the last few days which helps. I am still not taking any knitting to work, which means that all knitting is done after hours. I find that overall I don’t seem to have too much on the needles right now and even less that isn’t in long-term hibernation. I think the fewer projects  probably has a bit to do with the fact that it is Summer, the humidity, heat, and I do not play well together; additionally I find myself with a lack of inspiration right now. I can’t seem to find anything that I am just dying to knit, nor do I have any real deadline knitting which seems to result in very little for me to work on. I can’t complain too much I know that the yarn isn’t going anywhere, but it would be nice to catch some startitist and want to cast on all the things. Oh well, what’s a knitter to do?

How’s your knitting going? Anyone else finding their knitting inspiration slowed right now? Do you relate it to the weather or something else?
