No More Election=A Lot More Knitting

This is what I do with my time when I don’t have a campaign to work on.

Baby sweater for a friend’s son; still needs ends sewn in and buttons added, but I think it’s pretty damn cute.  Fingering weight scrap yarn–I believe the darkest and lightest blues are two different colorways of Araucania Ranco, and I have no idea what the medium blue yarn is.

This sock more or less speaks for itself.  The blue is tosh merino light; white is Valley Yarns Huntington (I think).

Groovy sock.  Some self-striping yarn that has long since lost its label.  I think it might be Lion Brand Sock Ease, but don’t quote me on that.

Current WIP: a modified Clapotis.  The pattern’s written for worsted-weight yarn, but I’m using a lace-weight that often behaves more like a fingering-weight, breaks WAY too often, and is a pain in the butt to unravel dropped stitches.  (Seriously, I have to ladder each stitch down row by row with a needle.  Huge pain in the ass, but there’s something oddly satisfying about unraveling something on purpose.  Something there is that doesn’t love a wall.)  The dropped stitches will look a lot less messy once it’s finished and blocked.  Yarn is Noro Taiyo Lace.
