This is what (I think) I'm making my Charlotte poncho out of - unless I change my mind. Its Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn. It feels soft and yummy, and I like the colors. From right to left, the colorways are: Wild Cherry, Northern Lights, Spring Frost, Green Mountain Madness , and Dusk. The Spring Frost is greener than that colorway usually is - I like it, and that was the decision point - you see, I had 2 colorways picked out. I bought this one because it wouldn't look as good with a truer Spring Frost - however, the shop lady wrote the other colors on my sales slip so I'd have them for later :-)
Now, if I change my mind about making this a Charlotte Ponch - this is a bunch of pairs of socks!
After my little rant yesterday, I got the knitting machine working. I switched tables it was mounted on, which helped greatly. This is my progress:
I'm unsure about the stripe in the middle - I think that's where I changed yarns. However, I'm likely to ignore it. When this works, it works pretty well. When it doesn't work its truly annoying.
Tonight I picked up stuff to send to my secret pal - but its a secret :-) I'll get it mailed tomorrow - can't leave my pal without presents!
And - I think I'll be able to knit on my trip - my thumb feels much better today. Shouldn't be a problem at all tomorrow! (whew!)
