This is the beginning of a pair of Animal Crackers socks (designed by a nodding acquaintance of mine who is an awesome guy, incidentally). Very much liking them so far. To the extent that I am neglecting both my designing and my Moyen Age. The yarn is not quite so vivid in real life, more of a rich deep raspberry. Wollmeise Twin, of course. (I kind of went on a WM binge last year. I will be knitting from stash for awhile.)
Speaking of my Moyen Age, no appreciable progress since last time, but I did take updated photos. Actually, I guess I didn't tell you I finished my sleeve. And the picture does not deceive you: that, on me, is a bracelet length sleeve. I TOLD you my arms were short.
I also got a decent picture of the sleeve cable:
Have I mentioned that I love this yarn? I'd link it, but sadly the dyer doesn't seem to have an internet presence at all. Which is a shame, because it's divine. (Maple Creek Farm Yarn "Portland" [50/50 silk/merino] in case you come across her at a festival or something.)
I have so far kept the startitis contained by a) leaving the socks upstairs so I am forced to work on the Moyen Age when I'm downstairs and b) planning new projects but not actually casting on for them.
Not sure how long this will work.
