Luscious Lucius (Do you think JKR planned that?!)


I’m still not back to vacation style runs each day, though I’ve been better about getting out this week than last.  :)  The manlets have distracted me at night, so I’ve been staying up way too late & sleeping in again – so the runs have been of the 2 & 3 mile variety all week.  But I plan to get out the next 3 weeks as often as I can because they’ll be on vacation at their father’s, so I will have a boatload of free time on my hands.  My last run was a bit uneventful, taking place in the dark at 5:30am.  The usual dog walkers & bicyclists were out & about and traffic was nothing since school is still out for summer.  :)

Luscious Lucius (Do you think JKR planned that?!)

Lucius is a pattern that I’ve had done for some now.  I finally found a test knitter & heard back from her a short time ago, so I am now able to put the pattern up on Ravelry.
YAY!  :)  I adore Lucius’ character – he’s actually a dream to design patterns for, as is Severus.  For this pattern, Shelby B asked me to design a pattern for her Lucius colorway, so I wanted to come up with something that is classy & a bit understated so the colors are the main focus of the sock.  I have a cable intensive plan for another design down the road, but with this gorgeous colorway, cables would have been lost.  Take a look, see what you think – let me know!


I’ve been working on gifts the past week.  Gifts galore!!  Whew!  I’ve knit a bunch of Smidge headbands – I think I’m up to 6 of them now?  :)  I also knit an adorable baby sweater for yet another friend that has a baby girl.  I’ve got far too many friends having or have recently had babies!!  LOL  I suppose I’m making up for the fact that I’ve never knit any baby stuff up until now, right?  I finished up my Vintage Rocks Baby sweater last night…

Cherry Baby! I love this colorway from Cherry Tree Hill - it's Cherry Blossom - hence my project name "Cherry Baby". :D

All finished! I'm strange in that I usually love the finishing work. LOL

Today’s Ravelry Search
