The Yarn Harlot has been blogging about her rainbow yarn lately, which got me thinking about my own rainbow-in-progress:
This is Bugga fiber from Cephalopod Yarns, and they do rainbows very well. This single is looking more-or-less like a circus, so I have no idea how it’s going to look once I ply it, but as long as I somehow avoid the clown barf phenomenon I’ll be pretty happy.
In other knitting news… I have very little other knitting news. 😦 I have been crossing things off my to-do list like a boss and unfortunately that means that knitting time has been slim. I’m steadily plugging away at the Fiasco’s socks, just finished the heel of the second one, and I barely started a new pair for a KAL in the Socks that Rawk group on Ravelry. This quarter we are knitting Dusty Corners, a 2010 club pattern that I’m excited to be getting around to. Linda Welch is the same designer of the Making Mischeif socks (South Fork Socks pattern) I finished
last month in February (gosh, time is flying). Here’s the yarn I’ll be using for it:
|STR Lightweight, colorway Lunasea|
I first stashed it back in April 2010, so it’s another early skein I’m looking forward to using! I’ve named these the “Lunacy” socks because it’s crazily optimistic of me to be casting on more projects right now… So, here are my sock goals for April:
- Finish the Fiasco’s socks (75% done)
- Finish the Lunacy socks (.0001% done)
- Finish an old SIP, Froot Loops (65% done)
Based on my recent track record, that’s probably more than enough. Sads! I want to be able to make more socks but there just isn’t time. Can I borrow some of yours?
No, you can't borrow time from me! I don't have enough for myself! If you look at my projects page, I have a Lonely Hearts Club for my single socks – look in the LONELY tab. (RAV: Mapleweave).
Haha, oh no, they're so gorgeous! They're way too pretty to stay single for long, I hope…
Ok the rainbow fiber is going to look amazing when you are done, I just know it! I love rainbows and you're spinning it really nicely. I also love that lunacy yarn, I cannot wait to see it made into socks!
Thank you! Well, knowing my track record you might have to wait a little while 😉 but I love the colorway and am excited to see it knit up, too.
How have you had that yarn for two years and not used it?!

Haha, I've been BUSY! It's been next-on-my-list for a while now… That's why I'm trying to knit so many socks this year, I have a lot of pretty sock yarn waiting to be loved!
