Battening Down the Hatches
For the first time, I'm getting ready for Hurricane Season. That's not really hard to do in Indiana, since it's not as if I need to tape up my windows or anything.
No, here inland, the #1 Hurricane Preparedness Priority is finishing my Hurricane Sock Pal's sock. And here it is, all ready to go.
She seemed pretty flexible, and I didn't find anything that looked absolutely perfect for her, so I decided to go with something with a local tie. This is Broadripple, designed by Rob of ThreadBear Fiber Arts. It's knit in Regia Crazy Color, which makes perfect sense if you know Broad Ripple. Incidentally, Rob has a blog named after his dog. But that's not why I picked the pattern. And I'll bet his dog knows the difference between wool roving and doggie treats.
This, for the record, covers #1 on my list of knitting goals for the summer. So far, so good.
