What you see the side of this is my Halloween sock. The yarn shop I got it from claims the color is Halloween. But in looking at it while I love the colors I dont think they are very Halloweeny. I could see myself wearing them in the middle of winter. And yes the green is that bright. Today I started the 2nd sock and I tried to see if I can get them to match. I think it is close but not perfect. I guess only time will tell. I do pretty good with getting the stripe socks to match and I was told that is a family trait. Eye balling is something my Mom can do. Its fun to see if they match.
I also have been playing with dish cloth patterns. This is one I completed in a day. Occasionally I work on dish cloths because its knitting and eventually they likely become gifts. I also like working with the pretty colors. This pattern is called Grandma's favorite. A pattern that has been around forever it seems. People come out with their own versions and this one the difference is there is a middle section. What you have is a way if you want to go a towel length. I like the pattern and I am likely gonna work on more.
Last but not least is my attempt to an evening shawl. I dont have an updated picture but this is gonna be a shawl that I can wear for maybe New Years Eve etc. I want to knit a few shawls because I tell ya they are nice to have on a cool night or in the summer when you go out to dinner and you have air conditioning going. I love this shawl so far the colors are so cool.
My knitting keeps me sane. And I think what I like the most is its one thing in my life I can control. I have been told that I could sell the stuff but I cant put a price on something I make. I was looking on a website and someone was selling socks for $40. Umm yeah I wouldnt do that to anyone. I guess that is it for now. Talk to you all later
