clearly i am obsessed with eating:

the top two are recent purchases, the rest are from the library. i didn't realize until i got them home, but i notice a theme...

and i love knitting socks:

especially sweet little knee socks

new sweater:

this one needs to be washed to smooth everything out, but i think i've got a good idea of the kinks in the pattern and how i want to work them out and it's just about a done deal

also, just for kicks and because they match, a new favorite find:

swatching for a variation of this project:

from left: debbie bliss eco cotton, sublime organic cotton, plymouth earth oceanside organic cotton

i love the vanilla color of the sublime but...

...i think plymouth is my favorite of the three for this project. i've used the others for other projects and loved them but i think this will be the right one for this project.

i'm trying to work on a shared goal (with these fabulous friends) of posting at least once a week, but i can't seem to craft quickly enough. i'm working on another pair of knit pants, so hopefully those will be done later today, but it's a busy day ahead of me, so we'll see.

in the meantime, a friend - with whom i and another friend have an idea brewing for a special project in the vicinity of the vein of the above - threw a party for her mom's birthday and i helped where i could, as she'd made a lot of the decor beforehand. i was pretty in love with how everything turned out.
