If my current WIP’s are any indication, it appears that I’m going through a blue period! I’m working the Embossed Leaves Socks in Soft Rock yarn that I bought at Maryland Sheep & Wool last year. I purchased this yarn with the intention of making a patterned sock, and when I saw this pattern I knew it was perfect. It just so happens that some other bloggers have been making these socks, too, confirming my decision. My other WIP is the Virtue cap from "It’s a Tape Thing" in Rowan Cotton Tape. I haven’t done the crochet border yet, just the knitted top. I just bought the crochet hook and hope I can figure out enough crochet again to be able to work the border.
In addition to knitting, I did a 47 mile ride through the hilly Texas pineywoods this weekend. It was tough, but a lot of fun, so we are in major training mode again. This weekend is a 40 miler through Houston, so that should be fun!
Good thesis news to report, the data collection portion of my project is over. Now to the writing!
