Anyway - here's to hoping that fessing up to all the socks I've been casting on for will at least calm down my dreams a bit!
First up, Bartholomew's Tantalizing Socks, from Cat's book. I started this for the plane ride to camp - and I love it. It's pooling in a pretty whacked way - but the way the linen stitch goes down the front of the leg is very neat.
When I arrived at camp, my friend Frieda gave me the neatest gift - Flat Feet! The yarn is knit up into a square, and you unravel it as you knit to make socks! I switched to knitting on these for camp, since the Cat sock was a bit to involved to knit and talk and have fun all at once.
When I arrived home, I found my first kit from The Tsock Tsarina waiting for me. This pattern was the reason I signed up for her Flock Sock club! Firebirds!!!
It's a really complicated pattern, which does eventually start to make sense... but at the end there is a significant amount of embroidery... which I'm a bit nervous about. I choose to not think of that for now.
Distracting everyone from the fact that I also signed up for a Monkey KawKaw KAL that is starting this weekend.... I show you some of the bulbs that have come up now that spring has arrived! I went a bit overboard in the fall - and I think Aaron and I planted over 600 bulbs.
I planted daffodils, iris, lilies, and alliums - hopefully they will bloom all at different times. The goal was to have a garden that had things flowering almost all spring and summer, but didn't need to be replanted every year. So far, so good!
