Bleeding Hearts, Waterloo Village, Stanhope, NJ
After finishing the Diagonal Cross Rib Socks, I knew I wanted to start another pair – of course. How can you not have a pair of sock on the needles? What would I do when I’m waiting in the doctors office, or at Motor Vehicle?
Funny how Nature Inspires…………….
Ancient Threads Farm – Tri – lac, longwood gray – purchased at Rhinebeck, 2007.
Of course, those bleeding hearts colors just stuck in my head, and after the other socks were done – I quickly cast on for these – Undulating Rib Socks from Favorite Socks. Again, I really like this book, very glad to have finally purchased it. The pattern is very simple and not easy to see here due to the glaring sunlight. The colors are a little more gray than the photo shows. The knitting has come in handy as I’ve had a bit of time here and there at work where I must be present, seen but not really heard. I would absolutely go stark raving mad just sitting and doing nothing. One repeat takes about 30 minutes or so.
Still on the other needles – Gale and Twinings – not forgotten at all, just savoring the knitting and frankly, I’m not in a rush – these stoles will be worn many times and I’m actually preplanning what to take on our vacation in June – the stoles would make great vacation knitting – but I just might be finished with Gale by then.
Where do you find your inspiration?
