Spring greens

Can we have spring now please? I’m tired of sneak attacks by winter. Tuesday dumped over six inches of snow on us in the morning alone, and I had a heart-stopping drive home. There were three spots where the car sat spinning the wheels in snow going up minor hills. I managed to get it moving again without getting out but it was scary. Now all the snow is gone again!

One Vinnland sock is done. It’s a very stretchy pattern and the m1p isn’t fun to do. I’ve found SIX splices in the Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids yarn so far and I’m not enjoying knitting with it at all. The next pair of socks I make will be for me and they will be green. I haven’t decided which of these to use, but I want it to be a good yarn without all the splices.

Knitting morning is tomorrow, Saturday 8th March, at Knitty Couture from 10am to 12pm. You’re welcome to join us!


  1. I encourage you to let Cherry Tree Hill know their yarn had 6 splices in a sock’s worth of yarn. Good companies want to know when their product is not up to par.

  2. I’ll second the motion for spring. In the meantime, consider moving about 40 miles NW ~ we didn’t get a single flake this time. teehee!

    Pretty colors!

  3. Six splices is obscene. I had an Opal skein like that once and it was just not possible to preserve the color sequence in the knitting. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    All those yarns are beautiful. I’d say just close your eyes and grab one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. sunkunkie said “consider moving about 40 miles NW ”

    I dont think I want to move anywhere but SOUTH. Like say, St Croix in the US Virgin Islands, average 85 degrees all year around. Or how about Nevada or Arizona?

  5. I say let CTH know too — and ask for a replacement skein while you’re at it!

    SIX is CRAZY! In one skein — I don’t think I have found six in the ALL the sock yarn I’ve ever knitted — which is much considering how long most knitters I’ve met have been knitting — I have only been at it for about 3.5 years — but still!
