I know how it's affecting the histamine levels in our bodies. Peter Kevin almost never takes medication for anything but even he is giving in and taking allergy tablets. A good rain shower would wash that pollen right down onto the ground.
This is the sparkly sock yarn (Summer Sky by Marigoldjen) that I bought at MDSW. I am a bit further along and the yarn while not especially sqooshy, is fun to knit with visually. I keep watching my hands to see how the colors pop up. I'm making just plain stockinette socks and so far, I love them. (the hot pink thing is my ipad cover. It really is that pink, just not quite that bright).
And now for something completely different.....a Finished Object! Pk's mock-Thorlo socks. I know it's a bit difficult to see but the insteps of the socks were done in a one by one ribbing to pull them into the foot more and give them a closer fit. It makes for funny looking socks but Pk wore them yesterday and he loves them. I have a feeling they will become my go-to pattern for his socks. The yarn is one from Artwalk sock yarn club. It's merino/nylon. Pk's socks can only be made with sock yarn containing nylon, he's hard on socks. These were toe up with short row heels (because I haven't figured out how to do a flap heel toe up)
