Another skein of Manos del Uruguay! This skein is color 101. It reminds me of the dense woods around our house in summer time when various green colors cover everything in sight. I'm using this skein for another Calorimetry. This one will be sent to my mom if she wants it. She has such pretty red hair - I though a green version might look better than the red one I made.
In other news, my husband has asked that I knit him a pair of socks! So I let him have his pick of sock yarn I have stashed away. He choose some Lorna's Laces I had in the Pioneer color, which is basically dark blue and brown. I decided I wanted to knit them on US #0 needles. None of the local shops had the needles in stock, so I had to order those and put the project on the back burner. I haven't picked a pattern yet either. But I figure I'll keep it to a basic stitch pattern in a toe up variety.
I did promise him the next pair of socks I knit, so last night I was ready to cast on a new project and needed something other than socks. I did a little digging and came up with a pattern and some yarn to get started. Hopefully it will be a relatively quick item to knit. I'll reveal at least the yarn for the project next week. I will give one hint - I think everyone, but me, has already knit this pattern at least one time.
