Finally Friday

This has been one of those weeks that I thought would never end. Usually when there are extra things on my schedule, the time flies. Not so this week.  By the time Wednesday rolled around I felt like I was on a vicious merry-o-round where time was suspended, and I was trapped doing the same thing over and over.  Today I jumped off that merry-go-round, and it's finally Friday.

I'm wrapping up the week with a pair of finished socks.

The pattern is Jeck, a simple ribbed pattern enhanced with a slip stitch.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Lucia, colorway Berry Patch.

When I started these socks, I purposely selected a color that was out of my comfort zone.  This colorway has shades of pink with flecks of purple.  While Berry Patch is a color I would not normally wear, I must admit it has grown on me.  It will be fun to have a splash of pink on my feet.

My current lace project, Octavia, continues to grow.

This yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Julia, colorway Lilac.  This is another color that I wouldn't normally choose, but I'm forcing myself to expand my horizons.  While it doesn't look like much yet, there are tiny violets emerging as I work my way up to over 230 stitches.

This Sunday I will be vending at the marketplace for The Great Rhody Yarn Crawl.  There is so much energy and excitement surrounding this event.  It's bound to be a lot of fun.  If you're in the area, check out the list of participants and activities.

This week I noticed tiny bursts of color in the outside world.  The first colors of spring are so striking against the earth tones of winter. These tiny, little blooms are my color inspiration for the week.

Shades of purplish blue.
