Something Old, Something New
My first sock in this dreamy strawberry colored yarn is finished, at last. It was a narrow escape from a lapse into "second-sock-syndrome". Now, I've started the second. It's been a slow start, since the pattern is a bit fiddly....you know....knit, purl, knit 2, purl 1, etc. Kind of a strange pattern combo, but I think the finished results will be quite nice...stay tuned.
You remember the little purse I was knitting for my granddaughter out of this Tahki cotton? I scrapped it, and I've begun a shopping bag for myself. This cotton will work up nicely for something of a sturdy nature, as it wasn't suitable for a little bag meant to be feminine and sweet. After all, feminine and sweet is a very good description of my little granddaughter!
My colors today are Red, White, and Blue....very appropriate, after our country's wonderful and long awaited military accomplishment!
