Here we have the progress I have made this week. And we can see that I am about to stop making progress. The loose yarn on the top is all that is left: and I still had at least 20 more rows to go.
So off to the internet I went to see if Webs had more of the closeout yarn I had ordered. And, no, they did not.
So, after much thought and creative thinking, I decided on this gold heather. It will be a band at the top of the sleeve and also will be the color of the patch pockets. I am also thinking of doing a little duplicate stitching to help reinforce the idea that I planned to use the gold all the time.
This picture is a true representation of the colors.
And I am almost done with these socks. I like the upper part to be pretty short so it will only go about 2” more and then a very elastic bind off.
I also wound yarn for a new pair of socks so I should have them on needles this weekend.
And in between knitting bouts I was moving fabric. I have emptied one bookcase and have started on the second. I also emptied several small bins of “quilting junque” so I could put them and the shelves that came with them into a yard sale for dog rescue. All of this activity is so I can change everything around in the studio. What fun we are going to have !?! Gari
