will it last?

will our heroine have enough yarn to finish the last border repeats? nail biting time.



the sweet sheep's lace yarn is a dream to knit with :-) and the color, sigh.

tune in to our next intallment for the thrilling outcome.

in the meantime i'll show you some new sock photos-



the jigsaw sock pattern- these socks started life as the green merino sock, but the main pattern was totally lost in the colors, so i kept the adorable ruffle edge and ribbing, and knit the jigsaw sock. size 0 colonial rosewood sock needles.
thanks jenna for a lovely pattern. love it.
the yarn, i think, is pagewood farms purchased at yarn durango, but i can't find this colorway anywhere on the web. i wound the ball in the card, and the label was thrown out by accident. the color is a gorgeous saturated bittersweet orange red.



these fires are burning in lake okeechobee. the water is so low in the lake that the vegetation normally underwater in the lake is exposed and burning.



it's shocking to drive by for weeks in a row and still see the fires.



gratuitous cute cat photo.



shotsie is a little miffed that the cat is getting all the blog attention. at nearly 13 she sleeps a lot...

That appears to be the same colorway I have of Pagewood Farm. Mine is labled Fruit Freeze. What is odd is out of the several skeins of that same colorway, none were similar. Good looking socks!

Go for it... the yarn looks close. I found an error when I was showing Whispering Pines to a friend. I have to take back about one third of the edging on one side.
