Progress and Updates

After blocking the Azure socks - they FIT!!, Granted it takes two of to get them on, but once they are on they look perfect. Note to self when doing toe up socks, switch to a larger needle for bind off and do a pattern that is actually for a mans foot. LOL

I am working on two Kool Haas hats (one for me and one for the husband). The one for me is done using Pumpkin Spice (look familiar Jessi?). This yarn was purchased from ETSY shop (she has some gorgeous hand spun over there now, so lovely).

I am also making progress on my Rusted Root. I have tied off the sleeves and am making my decreases for the bust. It is looking lovely - although a bit small. Lets hope that is deceiving. ;-D I really love Cotton Fleece and hope to find more things to do with it. Also have you seen the new knitty summer yarns - they look yummy!

It is official we are headed to Columbus, Ohio. After the long application process last year, we have our final destination. My husband will be working on his ph.d at OSU. Now to find a place to live and a place to work....any advice on the area would be greatly appreciated. All information is welcome.

Thanks for the link! :-) I love that pattern. It's on my long list of "to-do" stuff. lol It just keeps getting longer and longer...

My great aunt used to live in Ohio, but it was a different city. I just remember how blue-green the grass was in the spring. Good luck with the move and job search!

I'm so happy the socks fit! I love that pattern too, and will have to consider it when I get around to making a hat for ME.

Congrats on knowing where you're headed next. Is it closer to me? (Does it really matter?)
