My current work in progress:

Veronika Cardigan, designed by Shannon Cook, knit from YOTH Daughter in the Black Truffle colorway, using U.S. size 8 needles.

Bork! Bork! Bork!

It’s been one of those days. You know the kind — when you fix one thing it breaks three other things. Lots of internet weirdness along with work weirdness made me very happy to leave and come home for the day!

Oh, and my email has been borked all day so if you’ve contacted me and wonder why I am ignoring you, it is likely I haven’t seen your email yet. Hopefully the emails I’ve sent today have reached their intended recipients.

Bork! Bork! Bork!

Now, if it had been Bjorked, it would look like this:

And if it had been Birked, it would look like this:

Yes, it has been one of those days. So much so, that I felt the need to Squirrelize the photo of Bjork:

And I don’t have much of anything of my own to show you. I’ve got a chunk of knitting done on the second sock of my current pair:

I took this with me to New York over the weekend. I got a total of 10 rounds done all weekend, I think. For some reason, although I knit socks on the subway every day, I don’t like knitting on Amtrak, so I spent the train time reading.  And since the trip to New York was for book signing and teaching classes, well, not too much time for personal knitting!

And I won’t even bother showing you the True Love Stole. It looks pretty much the same as the last time you saw it.

Bottom line? I’ve got a lot to do, but not a lot to say!

But I do have something pretty to show you. 🙂

This is a handmade crocheted bead bracelet made by Julie of Big Sheep Jewelry. Isn’t it gorgeous?

And just so Lucy wouldn’t feel left out, Julie made her a pretty necklace.

Check out the clasp:

Here is a pic of Miss Lucy is wearing it.

And something I received a couple of weeks ago from an anonymous gifter:

One of Rosemary Hill‘s shawl pins — in the shape of a sock. How perfect is that??!!
