With the kids out of school this week I have not gotten much knitting done. I have also been busy with a lighting design for a new show at the Shelterbelt. This is my first design in about 4 years so I am enjoying it. I always love getting back to production work. It charges my creative batteries in a way nothing else does. Light is not an easy medium for an artist to work in. For one thing you need a space and lights and something to light. So I rarely pass up the chance. This show is NOT for the kiddies. I told the gals at knitnight they were welcome to come see it, However I also warned them: Hubby stars, and well I will just say that if you do see the show you will see all of him. (yes I mean all of him) so fair warning.

Now I am going to take the kids to the park and enjoy the sunshine. I hear we are going to get rain this weekend. Joy!

More Socks

My friend Carin was knitting a great pair of socks at knit night this week. I liked them so much when I got home from knitting I printed the pattern, ripped out the scarf I had started and cast on a pair for myself.

Ride around Sally

Plain socks in Socks that Rock lightweight. Colorway Mustang Sally. This has been my knit night/pick the kids up from school knitting. I love them. The color is more red than you see here.
For this pair I cast on 64 st, knit the ribbing and about 15 rows of leg then decreased to 60 for the rest on the sock. Guess what these socks don't fall down inside my boots!. Thanks to Carin for the yarn. Are you watching Round the Twist? You should be.

Look Ma! Lace!

This here is the Falling Water scarf. Knit in a new base yarn I have been playing with. Yes the color is right. I love the look of the orange but this is not a color I wear well. I think this is going to be a gift for my friend, the outgoing PTO president. The school colors are orange and black so this is the perfect thing. As for the new base yarn it has a very tight twist. The pattern really pops. I like it. I have some in the pot right now for a christmas gift I am planing.
