I finished the bamboo socks for my suspicious friend. I'm really pleased with the color. It's very masculine. I think the ribbing looks good too, though I would have liked my bamboos a bit thinner. Damn you, aran weighted yarn! Anyway. I think there's something quite boring about knitting socks, I just can't point my finger on it. I Maybe it's the flashbacks: "didn't I already knit this?! Why am I knitting this again? Oh... I forgot. These are supposed to be socks ".
I have already started two new projects. So far they don't look so impressive. My first and most important project is a pair of cupcake mittlets . I've been thinking about this pattern for a long time, and I finally found a reason to knit a pair. I made a tiny mistake in the lace chart and I had to unravel a lot. I don't like picking up stitched, so I moved on to next project until I get the energy to fix the lace.
So meanwhile I've been knitting something to humiliate our precious puppy. She needs something to protect her sensitive stand-up ears in the winter time, so I'm working on a dog hat prototype. It's going to be a simple tube with some kind of an accessory, but I still haven't figure out what. I'm pretty sure that Papu is going to hate it until the temperature hits -20°C. She's going to need a coat or sweater too, because her fur is so short. I wonder what she will think about winter, since it's only autumn and she's already freezing if it's windy. It will be quite a shock for her, for sure.
