Well, I can't say that I have very much to show for this month, since I was gone for the first ten days of it! I did manage to get some time with my Lapland Santa, though:
That's starting to look like a deer!
I did take some animal-related knitting with me! Remember when I crafted my own sock club? Well, I picked the robot bag, and I was kind of hoping for one particular pair of socks to come out of the bag, and they did! So animal-related! See, I got some limited edition yarn at some point that is made from...possum (and wool)!
See, it's not like "normal" yarn, which is just made from wool! You know, 'cause that just comes from...uh...um...sheep.
So I used this yarn which is made from TWO ANIMALS!!
I cast on these socks during our long layover in Washington, D.C., in the comfort of the Air France lounge. But I'm really not sure I like this yarn with this pattern (Rhodie Gus). I LOVE the colors of the yarn, I just don't like the way they're playing with this pattern. I think this pattern would be better off with a yarn with longer color runs, like a Noro sock yarn. I feel like the color changes are obscuring the pattern, which I also love.
The back side of yarn.
I think this yarn may actually want to become these socks instead. So much for my "careful" sock club "planning".
