It's always good to have a Plan B. This week I've been running around a lot, carrying my knitting with me wherever I go. My Flaming Desire socks have been getting my undivided attention. You know how it is when you get into a groove with a project and want to see it through to completion.
The other day I was out and about and waiting for one of the kids. I was working away on my sock and didn't mind the wait time. I reached the bottom of page 7 and was about to flip to page 8 when it happened. There wasn't a page 8 to flip to. I sorted through the stack of pattern pages to see if it was out of place. It wasn't. Then I emptied my bag to see if it had fallen to the bottom. It hadn't.
Earlier in the week I was taking only the socks to work on when I was out of the house - remember I wanted to finish them - but by midweek I came to my senses and tossed another project in my bag . . . just in case. My general rule is to carry at least 2 projects, but I had gotten lazy, and it was nice carrying a lighter bag.
When page 8 went missing, I still had plenty of waiting time on my hands, so I'm glad I tossed that second project in the bag. I'm on a roll with Purpleplexy and am starting the third set of stripes. Now to see if I can keep the momentum going on both projects. I still need to find page 8 . . .
My kitchen is a hodgepodge of mismatched items collected from yard sales and thrift stores. This matching set almost looks out of place. My color inspiration for the week . . .
According to the box it's caribbean.
