The needles are once again clicking. Having taken several moments to actually read all the way through the pattern, I have now re-cast on and am moving along confidently.
Socks are emerging and I am so very happy! This yarn has been hanging out in the stash for a while and it has always wanted to be socks for me - no one else.
This is Mountain Colors Crazyfoot in the Alpine color way - bought on sale. Not that I mind paying full price for good yarn. Never. I own some stuff that cost many a pretty penny and I never batted and eye at the total.
It is just so fun to get something you absolutely love and pay a huge percentage off!
The pattern is Pyroclastic by Marlowe Crawford. I chose the pattern because the foot has a shaped arch - something I have never before knit. What with the new year, it seems appropriate to learn something new. I can't wait until I am on that section and the brain is firing and rewiring and staying young.
Well, that's the goal. Can this old brain can learn a new trick?
