In which I shock all y’all, because I
1. Said all y’all
2. Am making a new blog post
3. Finished a pair of socks
Three is by far the most significant because I’ve been suffering from some wristy nervy tendony issues for the past two years, and have not knit anything significant since then. My dear friend who knits in Colorado is also a massage therapist (hi, friend!) and lo and behold, her handiwork allowed me to finish these suckers:

Soooo that happened.
The pattern is Wollmeise Socks from the Loopy Ewe, and the yarn is from Creatively Dyed yarns. I forget the colorway, but it’s the superwash merino sock yarn. I have a hoard of CD yarns that I’m hanging on to for the perfect project. It looks like you can still get the yarn online? More power to you and your online shopping.
Emboldened by this victory, I’ve started on Banyan Tree Socks, also by the Loopy Ewe. I’m knitting it up in Dragonfly Fibers golden pear djinni, which appears to be made exactly for these socks. It’s lovely. I’m on row 10! Yay!
So there’s that! And also SCA stuff like being elevated to the Laurel but that’s another, far longer post.
