Olive Drab to lift my spirits
There was a box from my Secret Pal in yesterday's mail. What great timing... I really needed a lift. And what do you know, more sock-enabling material! This is so cool! I have seen this Red Cross Knit Kit around for a while and it's right up my alley. I love historical stuff. Though I recall seeing the kit around the blogs, I don't recall seeing finished socks -- has anyone knit them? I was a little surprised at the softness of the yarn. Yum. Thank you, Secret Pal!
Wow, as I near the finish of the front/back of Cromarty, it's slow going. I knit and knit and knit and though I know I'm moving the row marker and clicking the counter, it doesn't seem like I'm getting any closer to the end! I would like to finish that piece before casting on anything else; then I will likely do the second sleeve for both St. Brigid and Cromarty. That's the plan right now.
I will show you the St. Brigid sleeve sometime this week. And though I was a little grumbly yesterday about all of Grandma's stuff, I have come across some "cool stuff," and I plan to share a little of that soon, too. I think it will make me feel better.
