I also ended up casting on Urbana by Stephen West. I hadn't planned to do this right now, but I need at least one mindless projects on the needles and my BFF is casting on her's and we thought that it would be fun to have a little mini knit-a-long. The colour way is "When I Bit Him, I Could Hear the Ocean." It's a Buffy the Vampire Slayer quote from Drusilla. However, unlike Dru, this yarn looks stunning in the sunlight. (Maybe there will be sunlight here again one day and I can take pictures then.)
Sadly the sock is still just a sock. I finally, feel the urge to cast on the second sock. This is good since it is not uncommon for a sock in my basket to be without it's mate for a long, long time. I have located the cast on I used for the first sock and should be able to do that soon.
I long time WIP also saw some love last night. Didn't get too far, but further than I was.
And now, I am adding a new cowl to the mix. I agreed to test knit for my BFF and my reward is this lovely skein of yarn in "Edward Discovers that Wood Chippers Make Great Juicers." Apparently, I am also modelling the final cowl. I get to keep the cowl when it's finished and I love the colourway.
It's a good thing I have a four day weekend coming up. I clearly need all the knitting time that I can get. And, if any of you have felt the urge to cast on a Stephen West pattern please feel free to join in the unofficial mini knit a-long.
