Despite the raging head cold, I finished the first sock! Body measures 10.5” - almost to my knee!

I finally blocked the doily I finished last week! I think it came out quite nicely. Now to figure out what to do with it! #doily #crochet #lace
This is a fantastic pattern for varigated yarn - enough texture to be interesting to knit but not so much that it’s competing with the yarn. Also, the pattern was free!
Pattern: Masonry Mitts
Designer: Vera Brosgol
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in Arco Iris
Nail Color: Orly’s You’re Blushing
New scarf started over the weekend… mostly because I wanted to have something warped up to work on. Well, truthfully, I’d intended on trying intentional pooling for a scarf this time, only to find out that the beautiful rainbow color skein wasn’t going to allow for it. Twas a deeeeeep sad. But I figured I’d still warp something up since I’d set everything up and I conceived of this idea. It’s hard to describe but hopefully you’ll be able to see it when the scarf is done. (You’ll also probably see my supra sloppy selvedge work right at the beginning)
Did some crochet today. My sister-in-law will have a new nephew soon and this will be his blanket.

You know what’s awesome? A donkey lamb taxi. That sounds like a band name. Hey, when’s the next Donkey Lamb Taxi show?
When sheep herders in the hills of Lombardy, Italy need to move their flocks toward better grazing land, the wee lambs get a little help keeping up with their woolly family. Helpful donkeys are fitted with sets of special lamb-sized pouches. It’s ridiculously cute and cozy mass transit in the form of live taxis who are content to graze right along side the sheep.

This character is a combination of 辶 the movement radical and 貴 a character meaning precious. Here 貴 is a phonetic element expressing “lose” and lending the meaning of “precious item.” Together with 辶 it gives “lose something (precious) while on the move,” and also later came to mean “leave behind.”
