I've recently been ripping out stagnated projects to start ones I actually care about. A pair of Broadripples was among the casualties. They were turning out beautifully, but, well... they were just too tight around my ankles. And there was no help for it...even though I'd already gotten to the heels. RIP. Two nights ago I cast on with the same yarn (Jojoland Melody -- gorgeous!), and have been enjoying the mindless knitting of simple, plain socks. Perfect. I've also been steadily stitching away at my latest embroidery project (design by Aimee Ray). I'm so smitten with all of the various colors and textures possible with such humble materials.
