I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

I test knit these for Louise Tilbrook. The hardest part was choosing a color that would do the pattern justice. I also wanted to pick a color that would match several outfits, but in the end, I wasn’t in the mood to knit khaki socks. Cause this color is so much more fun!

Pattern: Comb Gill by Louise Tilbrook
Needles: 2.25mm Signature Needle Arts DPN’s
Yarn: String Theory Hand Dyed Caper Sock
Colorway: Juice
Note: When you begin, these are not going to look amazing. Just keep going, and once you have a few repeats, the magic happens.
Right after I finished these, my parents visited and we headed down to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

I talked them into lunch at Torchy’s and my dad said it might have been the best taco he’s ever had. (It might have been because we were starving, but Torchy’s is really good. )

Then, we went antiquing in Georgetown before meeting up with The Husband at Casa de Metzroth for a 42 tournament. It was a perfect day.
My lovely parents
