Okay, quick & dirty update:Â I finished some old & new projects for my mom for Mother’s Day (Kertu socks and Aran Slippers) (she’s also getting the Trenza mitts).Â Hedgerows are still languishing on the needles, as is St Brigid.Â Â I cast on for Yarnissima’s May Mystery socks, Kiila, and have learned Judy’s Magic Cast On which is indeed very magical and clever.
Kiila is a toe-up pattern.Â The only other toe-up pattern I’ve started (not yet finished) is La Digitessa. After learning the Magic Cast On I’m 99% sure I’m going to frog what little I’ve done on La Digitessa and instead do her toe like I’m doing the toe for Kiila.Â Much nicer & neater.
It’s just been so darn hot to work on St Brigid.Â But I’ve not forgotten her.Â I had taken a pic w/ me modeling my current progress, even posted it to Flickr,Â but I looked so goofy in the photo I deleted it.
I’m really really thinking about taking a fair isle class — this one.Â I’ve checked airfare and can get it for under $200.Â I’m tempted, really tempted.
