Post Weekend Update
It's weird -- even though I'm not working, spring seems to bring so much busy-ness. The work is piling up and so is the socializing, which means that my crafty endeavors are on the back burner. Here's what I've managed in the last week: one arm of Swing Thing and the cuff of my second sock. Since it's been so cold, I haven't been that anxious to finish Swing Thing, but I better hurry up before Ruby grows out of it, no?
As for the Mata Hari sock, which I'm hoping I have enough yarn to finish (I think it's looking all right), I'm starting to realize that the yarn isn't actually red or pink, but more of a purple. I seriously think I'm developing colour blindness, especially when it comes to variegated yarns. I bought two skeins of this Fleece Artist stuff (one for a gift) and I kept this one because I thought it would produce a pair of cherry red socks. Now, there's some magenta in there, but it's mostly purple, burgundy and mauve. To top it off, the sock yarn that I got for next month's Project Spectrum (yellow and orange) is looking kind of rose to me now. What's wrong with me? (to top it off, I only just now realized that this photo is completely blurry -- yes, I'm going crazy. Or blind. Or both).
