Post from 11/13/12

This post is continually getting comments from a questionable source.  I'm resubmitting it today.

Next week, I'll be in the mountains, at 9700 feet, curled up in a nice chair, and... knitting, of course.  Making a (knitting) list and checking it twice:  Woolen pants, a scarf, Robert the bear, and two pairs of in-progress socks.  Actually all of the above are in-progress (on needles).  No lack of UFO's to choose from, so I'll fill a bag and work on as many as I can.  I can hear the silence of a tiny, almost deserted mining town, and the click of needles.  Meanwhile, I must report that I finished three projects over the weekend.  Only one to be viewed here:
I love the colors... and this is the first pair of socks that I used reinforcement thread in the heels.  Time will tell, however, I must admit that I don't have a problem with heels wearing out unless I use pure wool.  And these are not, so I normally wouldn't worry.  Should I be?
Yarn purchased at the Dale Shop at the train station in Bergen: Jawoll Color Superwashby Lang YarnsFingering / 4 ply
75% Wool, 18% Nylon, 7% Acrylic
206 yards / 50 grams (used 1.3 skeins)


  1. So cool that I know just where you mean, "the Dale shop at the trin station in Bergen"

  2. It would be nice if the whole world respected yarn so much that it was sold in train stations... and gas stations and grocery stores!


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
