Turning Point

Tomorrow production shifts from knitting to pie roundabout Exit 151, but for the moment holiday knitting continues apace.

This Diamond Patch Sock for my Holiday Sox pal is shaping rather well. Or, rather, it's ready for shaping.

From the front it just looks like a nondescript tube.

But the side view reveals the foot is finished. It's ready for an afterthought heel à la EZ (and a toe, too).

I was thinking of showing the sock a good time at the Macy's Thanksgiving parade, but the weather forecast is for a little bit of everything – sun, overcast, wind, rain, snow, cold – so we'll see.

Meanwhile, lest my Scarf Exchange pal (or exchange hostesses the adventurous Celia and the (self-described) impatient Cynthia) feel neglected, permit me to present some lovely Malabrigo in colorway Pagoda that may very well want to be a scarf.

I've been wanting to try Debbie New's dazzling Scribble Lace technique in Unexpected Knitting, so maybe the Malabrigo could become a Loopy and Luscious scarf by Natalie Wilson. Then again, maybe it wants to be Vintage Velvet from Scarf Style. Well, we'll see.

While I ponder that, have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
