Progress shot!

Well - there has been a little hiatus on the knitting front. I spent a couple days last week helping Liz out at the theatre sewing costumes for the improvised soap opera Scandal: Under the Big Top. I had a blast and got the last costume on the improvisor about 10 seconds before the show started - it was awesome!


I finished up the first of the Van Dyke socks out of the new book by Wendy Johnson - "Socks from the Toe Up". This is one of the sport weight sock patterns and if I had more time it would go along pretty quickly. I did cast on the second one last night and am almost to the gusset increases already... I am using BMFA Socks That Rock (medium) in Pink Granite. This colorway came from the sock club and to be honest, I wasn't thrilled with the pattern and have cast on using this yarn for a couple of different projects that didn't work out. This yarn definitely matched up with this pattern and that makes me terribly happy! Not much other knitting is going on right now - but I did get out and mow the lawn today!
