Still Recovering....

so it's quiet around here. Today there's no rain, just cool and damp and muddy. :sigh: Still - not complaining! We NEED the rain - the more, the better!

Spent today dyeing wool for 3 more pairs of socks. Faded black and bronze for Theseus and the Minotaur, purple and gold for La Mancha's Giants and green and orange :snicker: for Celeigh in the crew sock version. (Why the snicker? Because Green and Orange are the colors representing the Protestants and the Catholics.....I was in a silly mood, singing Irish folk songs when I remembered this pattern, and, well......there ya go. Irish shamrock socks. :lol:) (The links are to Ravelry's database; supposedly that is viewable to EVERYONE, member or not. If you can't see them, let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.)

I turned the heel on the first Celtic Pennies sock. getting better at short-row heels, but I don't *like* them yet. Still - this year's goal is to become comfortable with different types of heels, so I'll keep trying.

Break time's over - I need to get back to the socks. Gotta get finished so I can knit something else! :lol:
