Today I didn't feel well, and ended up coming home from work around 11:30. The results of which, I sat on the couch and knitted for a good portion of the afternoon. I made very good progress on my second sock, and then I remembered that I had a tapestry needle in my knitting supplies, so I used that to finish off the other sock. The striping isn't going to be identical, but it's pretty close, and I'm pleased with it! This yarn is difficult to make identical socks with. I just love the plummy colors!
Last time I went shopping, I spied some yarn that will do very nicely for the next two pairs of socks I make. The one on the left is self-striping. I made a pair of socks for my mom with the same name brand, and when I went back to Hobby Lobby to get some for a pair for myself, they had stopped stocking it. I was so glad to see that Meijer is now stocking it, and I whisked up a skein for myself before they decide to stop stocking it!
When the mail came this afternoon, I received a package from Linda at Lavender Wings. It was my "doorprize" from the online needlework show. The designs are lovely, and the sampler design came with a few beads and a little flower decoration. She also included a notepad and four small designs. I am not going to rush out and get the materials for these projects, because I do have a few other projects I'd like to finish up before getting more projects. (Such as a few pairs of socks, a sweater I've been ignoring, a counted cross stitch project, some sewing projects...)
