Why? Well, from what it looks like, the yarn I'm using for my scarf may very well have been discontinued. I KNOW, it's tragic. So, I've stopped knitting it until I can secure at least one more skein of the yarn, because it's starting to run low and I've only got about a third at best the length that I want. I'll be calling a not so LYS where I procured said yarn, on Monday, to check the unlikely odds of them having one or two more skeins. (I bought it over a year ago, I think) I've already checked the website of the yarn maker and it doesn't seem to exist any more. My searches for Cotton Candy by Feza on the internet came up empty. So, I may very well be stuck with the idea of ripping back and making a much thinner version of the same scarf. So in the meantime, I'm not knitting it until I know more.
What am I knitting instead? A sock.
It has a cast on of 70 stitches and I'm doing a K3 P2 ribbing for the leg of the sock. No separate cuff, just ribbing and I think I'll maintain the ribbing down the foot. I don't know yet. I'm not doing my normal 2 by Magic Loop Method because I just didn't feel like making two balls out of this huge thing.
The yarn is from Hill Country Yarns in Strawberry Swirl and I have to say, that the more I knit with it the more I like it. I wasn't so sure I was in love with the color at first, but I really like how the different colors mesh and play without pooling. All in all, a nice knit so far.
The color is a little off, the lighter part leans more towards a very light orangy yellow, but it's almost off white. I couldn't get the colors to photo true and still be in focus, so these shots will have to do.
I'm still feeling better, a little better every day. Focus on the positive, think less about the negative, keep drinking coffee. I think I can, I think I can keep knitting a sock =)
Take care, everyone!
