I showed you the sweater I’m working on. (Which I’m now pretty sure that I have to frog. My gauge seems to be off more than I thought it was. I don’t want to undo all that work, so for the time being, my sweater is sitting in time-out. *pout*)
Anyhoo, it looks like you guys are having much more success in the knitting department than I am.
My mom (Hi Mom!) is making a pretty snazzy pair of socks from yarn that she dyed herself using food coloring. Beautiful! (That shade of robin’s-egg blue is one of my favorite colors.)
And, she’s making a whole pile of granny squares. I love me some granny squares. They’re one of my favorite things to do when I don’t have any specific project in mind, or a pile of little yarn bits to use up. (I was digging through my stash the other day, and found that I have approximately 5 gallons of balls of worsted weight yarns. And no more than a half-skein of any one color. I might have to make another super-ugly…er… I mean eclectic blanket. Mom’s squares are much better color-coordinated.)
My friend Jenny had some free time to finish up her gorgeous crocheted shawl. We play board games once a week, and she brings her crochet and I bring my knitting. It’s awesome to see her shawl finished up so nicely!
I really need to learn how to do granny squares! So far they have baffled me. I have completed 2 shawls, but took no pictures before I gave them away. sigh.
Granny squares are easy and fun. Like Alli said and a great way to use up your leftovers. We can teach you the next time we get together.
