It's been a while since I've picked these up, and for some reason -- after finishing the Jaywalkers -- I had this uncontrollable urge to knit with Lorna's Laces on size 0 Addis. Just as the urge struck, I glanced over at my papasan chair -- a chair which has been relegated to Yarn Bowl For As Yet Unpacked, UnZiplocked, and Unclassified Yarn (in other words, it's covered in bags which contain all kinds of juicy yarn stuffs) -- and there it was: my baggie which contained a half-finished Child's Sock in a celery green, almost solid Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock.
People, I sailed through completion on the second half of the first sock and am sailing through completion of the second sock.
Somehow, I clicked with the pattern and haven't so much memorized it as I've intuitively picked up on the logic behind the pattern. I can figure out what needs to be done just by looking.
I'm not sure what happened, but the reason these were left "on hold" was because they were too complex to serve as a good, portable, mindless sock pattern. But now, I can pick these up anywhere, anytime and just knit.
I forgot how much I adore Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock. YUM.
In any case, there has been knitting on Elizabeth I. Really. I'm not kidding. I'll show progress reports sometime in the next couple of days. That one requires more thought than I'm ready to devote on certain days and so it goes a bit slower. But, I'm getting there. Slowly getting back into the swing of things.
Bear with me, peeps. :-)
