I finished up some items that I've been slack in posting. I still have two more that aren't washed and blocked yet. But here goes with the stuff that IS done.
These socks are like night and day. Yes, they are the same color, and yes, they are the same dye lot. It's hard to believe looking at them. Thank goodness they're for me. The yarn is Patons Kroy FX
in canyon colors, plain old vanilla socks, details here
Since I wear slippers out so incredibly fast, I made myself a pair of work-style ankle socks out of some leftover Briggs & Little Tuffy I had, hoping the nylon will make them last longer once fall weather, slipper wearing weather hits. Details here
I haven't bought yarn in a LONG time, I'm tyring to use up some stuff I've had for ages and ages. I made one of these before and gave it away, this one is for me, It's 5th Avenue Infinity Scarf
, made with yarn I bought years ago when there used to be a Zellers store around, dirt cheap, 4 skeins, $4. It's an acrylic/wool blend, bagged like mill ends. Horrid feeling to knit with, but it washes up nicely. Details here
I soon have to break my yarn diet and buy some. I am running out of things I really want to knit, there's just not much left anyways, and I need some simple knitting for car rides and stuff.
