I did get some knitting done over the weekend and even a little bit yesterday! (Monday is always crazy around here because that's the day I run most of our errands and do chores around the house.) As you can see, I've finished the first of the raspberry Waving Lace socks. The stitch pattern is pretty easy to memorize which makes it a portable project. I've just begun on the cuff of the second sock, but hope to get more done today. I also started a new project this weekend - its not as portable.
This is Soleil
from last Spring's Knitty. I'm knitting it in Knit Picks Shine Sport in Aquamarine and its moving along pretty quickly. I'm past the decreases for the waist shaping right now. I love the color of the yarn and I think it will be a comfortable and cool top to wear for summer. I got a pair of metal needles (Susan Bates Silvalume's) to knit this because the only circular size 4 I had was a Balene II. I discovered while I was knitting Picovoli a couple of weeks ago that the yarn was a little grippy on those needles and I felt like I spent all my time moving the stitches around the needles. The metal needles are a definite improvement!
On a completely non-fiber related note, how many of you have Crocs shoes? Do you like them? Do you wear them? Where do you wear them? For some reason I like them, but I haven't tried them on yet because I'm not sure where I'll wear them. What do you guys think?
