I've been uber-busy just lately, so not much knitting has been done. I have been working on a Patons SWS copy of the Noro 1x1 manually striped scarf I've been reading about here (definitely the most beautifully photographed version) and elsewhere.
Unfortunately, SWS comes in just a handful of colors, but I think that these two are working together in a really interesting way:
This is such a fun and fast knit, I can't seem to put it down! The SWS is soft and dense, and has a cushy but firm texture. It's fun to see what color combinations come up as you work. I can't imagine doing this is a really luxurious yarn like Silk Garden; I wouldn't be able to get anything else done ;)
Other than that, I'm still plugging away on the little guy's Jitterbug socks. Slow going, those little things. I think maybe it's the stockinette getting a bit boring - the next pair will be these, for sure. For me :)
I did escape this weekend with the dh, sans kids, to Cape Cod:
It was a lovely and relaxing weekend, and long overdue!
