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 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!

  1. And something blue. What about something borrowed?

    Love your socks. Makes me feel like knitting socks for myself.
