Some people spring clean, but fall has always been the season to jump-start me into action. All it took was a walk with my dogs a few mornings ago when the temps were blissfully in the 50s instead of the 80s, and I started to get inspired to get stuff DONE. But where to begin the blog catch up? With the piles of handspun from Tour de Fleece in July? The top I finished months ago? The handspun laceweight sweater I started last month? Nope. I'm going to start slowly and keep things simple. That roughly translates to: I’m going to post the project that is currently within arm’s reach of the computer.
Pattern: Brainless by Yarnissima
Just some humble socks I started earlier this month, but with sportweight yarn, these babies are flying. It helps that the socks accompanied me on 2 long plane flights and almost 2 straight days in a van driving around mountains in Colorado. People do a lot of weird things for fun. Mike and I decided it would be a good idea to fly to Denver so that we could then get up at 5am and drive up to Breckenridge with 1 friend and 9 strangers in order to spend the next 30 hours doing a relay run for 200 miles to Aspen (aka Ragnar Colorado).
So you can probably guess what the next blog post will be about. Hint: lots of pictures but no yarn.
