Skewed!

I’ve been working on something and haven’t bothered to take a photo. It’s my skew sock!

I won a skein of dyeabolical’s watercolor stripe yarn recently and it took me awhile to get it cast on. It also took me awhile to figure out what sock I wanted to knit in the first place. But, once I remembered how much I loved my last pair of skew socks out of noro kureyon sock, which are no more because I wore through the heels as I couldn’t stop wearing them, I decided that would be a great project for self striping yarn.

Look at that! It’s so pretty. So rich in color, as is typical for dyeabolical yarn.

It’s been my work project thus far, but I think I’ll take it home this weekend in case I want to keep working on it. It would be convenient to get the heel done at home where I have everything I need to complete the heel turn. I need more stitch markers, I need dpns, I need a needle to kitchener the heel. None of that I keep at work. So, perhaps that’ll be the goal of the weekend, to get myself past the heel by Monday morning when I can bring it back and work on it at work again next week.

I am still in this mode of “allergies or cold?” right now, and I can’t seem to shake it. I feel pretty good in the mornings, but by the time evening rolls around I don’t feel good at all. Last evening I continued my work on the closet and dresser clean out, continuing to sort and put away, and hang up, and purge. I am pretty much done now, there’s a pile of clothing for Miss Butterfly to sort through when she gets home tonight, and then I’ll be able to put the final bin in the basement, having completed the job. I didn’t really expect this to take 4 nights of work!!! But, I also haven’t gone through my closets in 2 years, and it really should be an every 6 months or so task, I think. (The fact that I have WAY more closet space in the new house means I somehow failed completely to do this job for 2 years.)

That’s about all from here! Happy Friday everyone.

  1. Interesting socks! I haven’t seen that pattern before, though I am familiar with Dyebolical’s gorgeous colors. 🙂

    I hope that you are just allergic to cleaning out closets! I do mine each season as I don’t have a huge closet, so out of season clothes get packed away onto the shelves. Usually by Memorial Day I am itching to get it done to get at my short sleeved shirts and summer skirts, but this spring has been so cold, I am still happy in long sleeves and wool socks. But I know better days are coming, so maybe this week I will do it. I just can’t imagine being happy in summer skirts and sandals right now, though. 🙂

    • There’s nothing worse, in my opinion, than getting out your summer clothing too early and then sitting there shivering in them. It’s so uncomfortable! I have done that more than once, but i think I’ve learned my lesson.

      • I got th ebins out of the closet yesterday, but did nothing with them, they are stacked in the corner. And good thing! TOday we wont; get out of the 50’s. I conceded to spring and have a 3/4 length sleeved shirt, but I also have a light shawl on. And no wool socks. So I am freezing. it’s crazy weather.

  2. Super fun self striping yarn ! Sorry you have had the yucks……Im wishing they go away fast for you. I’m glad my head cold was over by the time Al arrived, but geez the cough lingered and lingered.
