To celebrate Inlay, I'm having a little bit of a knitalong. I'm doing it over in the Silk Road Socks group. I realized I wanted to make these socks when I was doing the research for that book. I saw all the gorgeous floors peeking out from under the rugs and filed away the idea of doing a pattern based on the fancy tile work. Inlay was the result.

Book Yarn, Part II
Hey look, it's our friend Percival again. I am totally making him earn his keep. Fair disclosure, I set him up on the front porch and clicked through all of the various yarns one after the other.

This is a giant plastic file box from some [...]
In the Deep Dark Woods

Woods that have been carefully maintained to be convenient and comfortable. I don't have much use for the other sort of woods (the kind with wolves and tents and snakes and cliffs). I'm off at Salt Fork State Park with The Boy and his extended family. They've all been coming here every summer for decades, and it's become a much-loved tradition.
