It's official

The Camera is no longer working. Grrrrrr.

I can't even import the last group of unfocused shots. no pics.

What am I working on.?
Socks, yes, socks. I'm going to actually finish a pair of plain old socks. Not too plain, they are being knitted out of Mountain Colors, Bearfoot, Wilderness colorway. I splurged one day.

I have also been working with the wool from Wilde. I'm trying to develop a pattern with a sort of spiral paisley thing in it. This I wish I had the photo to show.
I'm not sure where it's going. Part of me thinks it's the busy work that allows me to think while I head towards the real project. It's playing with numbers and it lets me see how some patterning acts in 3 dimensions.

I also got a fantastic gift from Dutchjan.
it's the pattern, with some history, for Groenlo mittens. sorry I can't find a link so you can see them. What's so interesting to me is their history, as a pattern derived (probably) from norwegian patterns. The dorky, history, me has been looking and looking at the North Atlantic styles of knit designs lately, Somehow it's all going to come together in the new work. Rugs.

I'm still a little bit lost on Ravelry, I keep meeting new people,
even had a little bit to play in Jacey's super secret no longer project
it's eating my time.

There is other stuff on the needles, plain old worsted wool socks, in Pink. plain old cotton socks(I might try an argyll). nothing on the machine.

Daffodils are up but not blooming.

spring.

Damn it. I read Jodi Green's blog last night an she wrote about the Jacey super secret, and that was right before going to bed. Then I wake up and your blog is the first up, and you are talking about it, too.
I used to get left out of all the games on the play yard in elementary school, too.
Y'all are gonna give me a complex.
Ok, I already have the complex. Y'all are pushing my buttons.
