My Next KAL Knit – Nutkin Socks

I started on my next project Friday, and took it with me to Maine over the weekend. I love the pattern! It’s so easy and quick, and it really looks like a cable. I already have about half a leg done.

The yarn is hand dyed sock yarn form my friend Ali, who gave me a bunch of her hand dyed stash before she moved. I really love the color. It’s like pumpkin, or fire. The photo just barely captures how bright it is!

While in Portland, we smoked chicken wings and ate homemade bacon. We also checked out the Pirates exhibit at the Portland Science Center – definitely worth the $20 admission to see real pirate treasure! There’s even a part where you can touch some of the pieces of eight they recovered from a wrecked pirate ship.

We also got oysters from a stand. They were delicious! I don’t really like oysters, so I only had two of the half dozen. They were from 45 minutes away. I love street food, and Portland is getting some really good street vendors!

Anyway, that’s all the progress I have to report. I knit my arms off this weekend and my hands are a little sore, so will probably not do too much this week.
