By the Sea

By the Sea


I joined The Handmade Sock Society’s Season Two sock club this week.  Since the theme is “A Sanctuary by the Sea, I thought it fitting that the project yarn I’m using is Knitpicks Stroll in the colorway Seashell Tonal. I love the soft pink and grays of this yarn!

 

You can find my project notes here.

One more thing – I’ve started a pottery blog, The Insomniac Potter. I hope you’ll pay us a visit!

Here’s a look at what’s come off my pottery wheel these last few days.  I’ve been practicing this particular shape, which finally jelled a couple of days ago.  I hope you like them.

Despite my vow to myself that I’d not start anything new until my WIPs were finished, I found I could’t exist one more day without at least casting on the Abella Pullover from Knitpicks Sunday Morning patterns and so caved.  A word to the wise – Beware the 279 stitch i-cord cast on. 🤪
