thank you thank you for your birthday wishes! and your many suggestions regarding my sock and yarn choice suggestions. For now I am ignoring the socks. I want to simply attach the Koigu and finish the damn things, but fear that I will never wear them if they are mismatched to such an extent. On the other hand, I do not have the knitters’ stomach at the moment to start ripping the finished sock. So I am setting the whole damn thing aside.
As for the BeaverSlide ……. I have been carrying the colorcards all over soliciting friends’ advice. My first thought was to go with the BeaverSlide Fisherman Weight in the color Autumn Dogwood. It is very close to the chokecherry. But Margene tells me that the fisherman weight is considerable heavier that the worsted. I don’t want to go any bigger than 4 st/inch in gauge.The waters have gotten further muddied by Kathleen’s suggestion that I check out Peace Fleece and by bins of Cascade 220 at a local yarn shop.
In mother in law news ….. her pace maker was put in on Tuesday and her wrist surgery was yesterday. Both went well and she is feeling good. I believe she will be released from the hospital today!
hope you all have a great weekend!
