MG: stocking swatching

i'm participating in MJ's Norwegian Knits-Along as one of a gaggle knitting the Norwegian Stockings from Folk Socks. it took me a while to get things together enough for my foray into fair isle colorwork, but i'm ready. i made a little 30 stitch swatch in the round last night, with 2.75mm and 3.25mm needles.

returning to berkeley is returning to spring, seeing home with fresh-from-frost eyes:

it's warm enough to read or dream under a tree, but the ground is too mushy--rainy season earth.

i don't tire of pondering the blue blue sky with a brightening moon.


  1. Such neat floats! It looks lovely. And it looks like your blog colors as well!
