While I was travelling the June Cookie a Sock club shipment happened. The patterns were emailed and are classic Cookie A. The yarns beautiful, from Plucky Knitter Yarns, a Merino / Cashmere / Nylon blend, in a stunning blue.
I knit one of the pattern already for Leon, and now, when I am considering what to knit next I DON'T WANT TO KNIT THE OTHER PATTERN. Or rather, I don't want knit it right now. I feel like I have enough socks, for the moment. I want to be knitting socks for Leon and my father and Raph (a friend who is having a birthday soon) or knee high socks, and I don't think this pattern can be converted to make it manly. Now, for most people this wouldn’t be a big deal, but I'm a bit uncomfortable with the idea of leaving it. Just not knitting it now. On the other hand I'm the boss of my knitting and I'll knit what I want and at the moment that seems to be big, warm jumpers. Not really surprising, given the weather.
During all this angst I made one of the biscuit recipes from the June package:
Tasty. The "Cookie" part of the Cookie A sock club has been unexpectedly fun.
