Purling Dervish

Now with half the Purling, and ten times the Dervish

March is for slackers

Mar-20-2013 By Stacey

She is completely right. Perhaps a CMMDI in March was not the best idea.

It’s spring! I live on a farm! In Texas! How do y’all expect me to knit?!? It’s been spring for at least a month now.

In my defense; A) he has weird feet, B) too many tiny squares may kill me and C) last year I knit 15 projects. So far this year, I’ve already finished seven. Even if I only finish one project a month from here on out, I’m still ahead of last year.

If Texas has listened to my hints, I’ll get a sock machine for my birthday and can rip though my sock stash.


I needed this like I needed a hole in the head. I know. For some reason, I am loving Noro Taiyo. It washes up quite softly and doesn’t pull apart. I have a grand plan for it, but we know how those work out around here.

Happy Spring y’all!

p.s. Does anyone remember what Wednesday was for?

  1. Kitten Said,

    That Taiyo is what Joan knit Jasper’s blankie out of. It’s the only Noro I’ve found that I can stand to touch. So lovely!

  2. Cheryl S. Said,

    Taiyo is so soft and yummy. Gorgeous colorway you have there.

  3. Cookie Said,

    Tell him I said you need a sock machine.

    I’m starting to think we need to have a blanket month…

    Oh! And it’s for whinging. You did good. ;^)

  4. Marilyn Said,

    I’ve only used Noro Silk Garden…didn’t like it very much itchy-wise. Loved the colors though. I love the colors of yours too.
    Who needs a sock machine when Cookie is around? 😉

  5. Angie Said,

    Pretty! You definitely need a sock machine.

    You are busy! I will be seed starting this weekend so I am, what, 10 weeks behind you?

  6. Sarah Said,

    If March was slacker month, I win that, too!

    So, if you don’t mind telling, what’s the pattern/plan?

    Wednesday? Hmmm…whateveryouwantwednesday? Idaknow, I am not a good blogger, and may have given up trying to be part of following along or trying to do it right. xoxo
