No, not really. The weather got really nice and hot here and things got a bit sweaty. I made sad attempts at trying to knit but it didn't matter. My hands got too sweaty and yarn and needles just started sticking to me, it really messed with my gauge. I had to reserve knitting to late at night when it was much cooler and even by then I would only get a little bit of knitting accomplished before I lost the fight with eyelids and had to go to bed. Now, the weather is still pretty warm but I can get away with knitting a few rounds here and there. I'm determined to get these socks finished before the month is over. Even though I absolutely love knitting with this yarn and I seriously cannot get enough of this colourway, I definitely don't want these socks still on my needles when the cooler weather comes rolling around! I fear that if I leave this project for too long I'll get blinded by something new and shiny and these socks will get pushed deeper and deeper into the depths of the proverbial knitting basket. I can't let that happen now, can I? Nope! That would be blasphemy!
Anyhoo, ever since I got my hot little hands on this skein of amazeballs self-striping sock yarn, I've gotten comments and messages left and right about where I had obtained it. In case you've forgotten, the oh so lovely Em of Everything Old had custom dyed this for me because she rocks. And guess what? Now you can own a skein of it too! That's right! I asked Em if she could dye up another fabulous skein for me that I can give away to one lucky reader on this here blog!! Are you excited?? I know I am! So...what time is it?
