It has been since I last bought yarn!

Sun Blocked

Pardon my little hiatus there... it was the most wonderful time of the year... HAWAII VACATION.

Needles to say- we are very relaxed now.

I am always loathe to advertise my not being home until AFTER I AM HOME... but yes, life came to stand still there for a bit while we soaked in some much needed vitamin D on Oahu this time.  I had intended to get out a brief blog post prior to our departure, but like all days leading up to a vacation, things got busy.  I had done everything I could to get those Jelly Bean socks done, and it came down to 2 more ends needing to be woven in... which I finished this morning.


Pattern: Vanilla Bean Striped Socks by Emily O'Grady
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in "Jelly Bean" (huh- KP doesn't currently have any Felici on their site!)
Needles: US 1
Notes: This is such a great pattern for self striping yarn.  Just enough to keep it interesting but still delightfully simple.  I feel like Felici was made for this pattern!  As usual- I cut the yarn in order to allow for a perfect striping sequence, and while it's extra ends to weave in, I NEVER regret the choice.

Like all good vacations, I do set out to have some projects to work on.  And as always, I always plan for more than I knit.  Progress did occur... but it was slow to potentially non-exsistent.  Meet "Maudie" and "Take Five"- you'll be seeing a lot more of them I'm sure.



While we were away a good friend's first baby announcement came through- so it appears there will be a baby blanket on the needles soon!  Spring is going to be exciting!
