Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here

SQUEE…………..

Sunday! I finalllllly finished the socks! They were going on like a broken record (remember records?) that is stuck in one place. I couldn’t get passed the gusset. I finished them up on Friday.

Cascade B & B Socks

No sooner was I done with that when I casted on a scarf pattern I picked up on our Shop Hop in May. The picture doesn’t really capture the metallic brilliant lime green yarn. It’s an easy pattern (not in Ravelry) with a cable row and a lace row.

Dawn's Twisted Scarf

I am still working on the sweater but am so tired of doing stockinette! I messed up the lace panel on one side but am going to live with it as it makes the sweater uniquely mine. The pattern is well written and easy so far; we’ll see what happens when I get to the sleeve and have to pick up some underarm stitches. I’ve been checking it out and even though I only casted on 8 new stitches it looks like there are more to be picked up to avoid a hole (kinda like a gusset on a sock or mitten.

Polar Cap Cardi

I am reading a new “knitmance”  by author, Rachael Herron, If you’ve enjoyed Debbie Macomber’s books, you’ll like Rachaels’. Rachael’s are a little (well a lot) more steamy. I met Rachael at the Oakland Fiber Fest a few weeks ago. I had planned to save the books for vacation in Maui reading in September but need something to read now so I started the first book in the Cypress Cove series, How to Knit a Love Song. I entered a contest on her blog and won a galley copy of her 3rd book in the series. Now I’ll have enough to keep me reading on the beach for the two weeks we’ll be on vacation.

And finally, last night I made a yummy accompaniment for our dinner, Zucchini-Ricotta Fritters

  1. Ooo, steamy knitting books? I’m in! I’d only seen mysteries so far, and one sort of slice-of-life chick-lit series. I might just pick up her audiobook that she just put out. We’ll have to see. I wish it was at my library.

  2. Knitting romances? I’m in! The food looks yummy and the socks are very nice. Great post!

  3. Love those socks! And that book sounds like a whole lot of awesome. Your fritters made me hungry 🙂

  4. Yeah for new socks!!! Are you able to wear them yet?

  5. Those socks are awesome, I love the dainty cable. And the yarn you’re using for that scarf looks amazing in the Ravelry photos, I wish I had some.

    Other things I wish I had: those zucchini fritters. They look amazing.
