I gathered all the Opal yarns from the stash in anticipation of the start of the Opal Socktoberfest Challenge. Click on the button in the left sidebard for the challenge if you haven’t checked it out yet. It’s just for fun but there’s some free yarn involved – can’t get better than that.
So now to decide which one of those I want to use first. It won’t be the couple of solid colors because I bought those to have around for heels and toes on other yarns if I think I may be running short on yarn. But there’s plenty to choose from. If I meet my own personal challenge number of four pairs of socks – that means one a week — that means some speedy knitting to be sure so we’ll see if I can really make it.
And here’s the Houses in the Woods blocks for CTS that I have finished so far. A couple more to make yet.
There was a bit of an earthquake on the design wall that holds the CTS blocks. It was the second design wall I put up when the other one was full and I had the window open because it was such a lovely day and there was a bit of a cross breeze going through the apartment. Right past the buildings — which were on the wall but of course are now on the floor – not all of them but there was definitely a building collapse going on!
