I have the May Rockin' Sock Club shipment in this post, soooo if you are a club member and do not want a peak at what arrived in my mail Friday, look away. But to distract you for just a moment I will share with all of you what is happening at Chez Peterson this week. This is my middle son Justin and he is graduating this week from high school. Baccalaureate was last night. At Coe Brown Northwood Academy, it is the night that the academic awards are given out, the artistic talents are celebrated, and the headmaster introduces every senior and shares their plans for the future. I have to say that this group of kids has crazy artistic talents. The musical selections were beautiful. The select chorus sang The Star Spangled Banner and it literally brought tears to my eyes. The art slideshow was amazing. Every media was represented and it was contemporary, relevant, moving, haunting, and uplifting. Anyway, Justin plans to attend the University of Alabama in he fall. He will major in Mechanical Engineering and will be a member of the waterski team. Go Bama!
Without further ado, here is the May shipment of the RSC!
(Pay no attention to the pictures being out of order, but I have a terrible time getting them in the order I want them. Not sure if it's a Vista thing, blogger thing, or operator incompetence.)
The colorway is Pepe La Plume and I love it! It is very purpley in my opinion and yet it doesn't really have any purple in it. Lots of magenta, mauve, dark gunmetal grey, and a hint of brown. I do have one small, meaning less than 1", section of lavender where the grey and mauve meet and mix, but that's it for actual purples.
The pattern is Fraggle Squiggle Socks by JC Briar. I have done a couple other things by JC and I really enjoy her patterns, so I was thrilled she was the designer. I was planning to finish my March socks first, but I caved and cast these on over the weekend. I've only completed 4 rows of the cuff. Not enough worth showing but just enough to satisfy my curiosity and motivate me to get those March socks finished! For a better look at the pattern go peek at turtlgirl76 or irishgirlieknits blogs. They have both zoomed through the first sock and have posted pics.
I hope everyone has a great week. If you live in NH go buy a powerball ticket. The jackpot is $220 million dollars for tonight's drawing!
