This morning my feet were cold, so I finished these.
I only had 3 decrease rounds left on the toe of the second one (and running in some ends). These are made with Holiday Sock "Flock Sock" yarn, in the colorway Monster Mash. I started them in September 2013, and they've been my purse project all that time.
This is my new purse project.
The yarn is Regia "Zoofari" in pink and black. They are definitely brighter than the photo shows.
I also finished a crocheted cloth.
Love the colors in this one! I had started another crocheted cloth, but ended up pulling it apart to rewind the yarn after the cats had a party with it.
I have a couple of projects being worked on here and there. The first is a bulky hoodie cardigan for the baby. This is being done in Encore bulky.
I had finished this one most of the way, but started over to make it a little bigger, and to make the cuffs and bottom band much longer. I think the pattern has them only 5 rows long. I want 10 or 12 rows, I think. This goes quick, I just need some time! My every-other-Wednesday knitting group at the library helps a bit.
This is the other project. It's a scarf, in angora/merino yarn that I picked up at a knitting & crochet show, at the Lion Brand booth. That was some fun shopping! I've started this twice; I thought this pattenr would work (and it does) but I think I need something a little more mindless. Things are just too busy lately.
I went with my daughter last week to a store in Manchester called Manchester Music Mill. The store is fairly crowded, and stocked with tons of stuff. My daughter picked up an entry-level violin for her birthday. I spent some time looking at the guitars, of course! I have decided that I am totally in love with the Taylor Koa wood models, and have started saving for one. They had two there.
I like the one in the middle - the Taylor 324 ce-K model.
I don't even know what the difference might be between the 324 model and the 326 model in front of it, but I like the wood and grain of this one better. Koa is such an awesome wood! And Taylors are well-known to be exceptional guitars.
