From the hazy fog of allergies and contemplating moving to the arctic circle I haven't had energy to work on much more than socks. I'm still working with the Deborah Norville sock yarn; this time I'm using the Aquamarine colorway. It sounds like such a girly color name, but my husband assures me the colors are masculine enough to please the recipient of these socks. (Of course I'm giving someone hand knit socks in June so they may not be focusing on color so much as wondering if I'm a few yarn balls short of a knitting bag.)
Usually as I get healthy after several weeks of not feeling well I have a major desire to start something new. As I was drooling over patterns this lovely yarn showed up in a box of birthday presents. I'm debating trying my hand at lace knitting and making Knitty's Omelet shawl. I think it will go perfectly with a dress I'm planning to wear to a wedding this fall.
