So, I obviously shouldn’t think I can start a Fiber Factor Challenge with only half of the blog posts to cover that time written. It was all about felt and knitting here at Дом Doviejay for a while, but I mailed yesterday (and cleaned, cleaning is an important part of the post-Challenge world) and now I’m back! I’ll have to make sure I set a bunch of posts before The Sixth and Final Challenge starts on October 10th.
Assuming I had time to focus on something other than my own actual work for the next eight days, I can tell you that I’d be knitting this bad boy:
Some of the others in the RSC group have been posting their finished socks, and I have to say I love how the yarn looks knit up in that amazing texture! Here’s the discussion so far. I wasn’t as into them when I saw the pattern by itself, but after seeing a couple of projects made up I really love it. I definitely want to make a pair.
And that’s without considering how great the color is this time. It came to us called “Orphan Fledge” because Tina didn’t have a name for it yet, and she’s been holding a contest on the RSC blog. As of now there isn’t a winner, but my suggestion was to call it “The Usual Sarah” after Sarah Manning from the amazing BBC America show Orphan Black. She’s sooooo great – such a great woman anti-hero – and she’d love this color. I don’t know how, but it glows, don’t you think?
I’m so glad I started making socks again in the last year. I do love socks.
