Old, also, is Sofee's one and only long sleeved sweater.
And now for some pretty "new" items. Some actually not so new, but I have not been very good about photographing my new fiber before I stash it away. So....I raided the stash bins and got caught up. New pretties.....
Sqoosh. Apparently there is not a colorway name. I just see "1073" on the label. Not sure what it will be yet, but she was having a very good sale - and I just could not resist the beautiful reds and oranges.
FatCatKnits. These will eventually be spun into fingering weight yarns for colorwork. Love these little braids to play with.
This is "Esther" on VBFL. Ginny of FatCatKnits has a colorway of the month (voted on by her rav group members - great fun!) and she offers a discount on that particular colorway. This must have been the one for July. Deep purples. I wish I had ordered more, as I like it way more than I thought I would. sigh....
This is Spinach Souffle, the colorway for August (I think at least). Lovely deep greens. Again on VBFL.
As for my knitting, I am nearing completion on a project somewhat inspired by this photo:
Besides that promised sweater for Sofee, my mom is wanting some hats for this winter. She has never been much of a hat enthusiast, but with age comes thinning hair, so our priorities change a bit. I made her a Beret de printemps last year which she really liked. This year, I think I will knit a Brambles Beret. She likes them kind of slouchy - doesn't want crushed hair. Anyway, should be a quick project.
Sorry - this is a long rambling post! BG is doing a sleep over tonight. The movie Lion King - at the theater - is on the schedule for tomorrow. Should be fun! It's available in 3-D, but just not sure how he'd tolerate those glasses, so we will probably opt for 2-D. Popcorn will still taste great!
OH! I almost forgot..... It's turned colder here, and the other morning, BG came to my house with (commercial) socks on. Shortly after his mom left, he started pulling them off, and when I asked him why, he said "I want the comfy socks you made for me, Granma!". Ahhhhh...... what more can I say! :)
