Frog Pond

Remember this?

I (heart) Gansey sock

It's the I (heart) Gansey sock, from the Six Sox Knitalong, in Hand Jive Knits Nature's Palette Fingering weight yarn in Indian Paintbrush, a gorgeous pinky red. I love this yarn. I love this pattern. However....

former I (heart) Gansey Sock

This project was hanging over my head. The pattern is fairly complex and I can only deal with one complex project at a time. Right now, that would be the Honeybee Stole. I wanted to knit socks, with this yarn, but I can't deal with the pattern right now. I don't know what I'll do with it, but it will be socks.

The second Bus Stop mitten is about half done. I worked on it tonight while my brother and I waited for our meal at Steak'n'Shake (really, one of the reasons I moved back to the Midwest). However, I managed to leave the restaurant without it. When I went back to to look for it -- after driving all the way home and back, of course -- the manager told me that they were going to see if they could learn to knit, so they could finish it! I got the feeling that bags of yarn are not frequently found at Steak'n'Shake.

I'm glad the Step'n'Kick people saved your mitten!

The guy I work with who's from Riverton worked at S'n'S while he was in college. We have all kinds of great conversations about S'n'S and Mel-O-Cream donuts and horseshoes... *sigh*
