[personal profile] thistleingrey asked, "Have you been knitting at all?"

My knitting productivity definitely fell after I became a tenure-track professor, but yes, I have been knitting, even if I haven't been tracking most of it.


This cabled lap blanket is made from an impossibly soft merino-and-something blend. The joy is really in touching it:

Right now I'm working on a brilliant teal pair of stockings with patterning inspired by this sixteenth-century boys' pair. These gilt-and-green stockings in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts are part of the case for bright colors.

Those look lovely! I especially like the bear's raglan shoulders. :)

Yes, why not bright colors in period, indeed.
