Knitting Progress

In addition to the spinning and crafting I’ve done this past month, I completed a couple of smaller projects and finished a continued work-in-progress.

IMG_4061As always, I have a pair of socks still in progress.  I think that’s a perpetual project for me.   Once I finish a pair, I immediately start another pair.  This month, I actually managed to finish a pair.  The yarn has a bit of metallic thread through it, so these socks have a bit of a nice shine.   Plus, you’ve gotta love the colors!

IMG_4058I finished yet another mesh scarf, so now the one I finished at the retreat has a “buddy”.   These are so much fun to make….and they’re so versatile.  Always available to “add a splash of color” wherever it’s needed!  

I’ve included a close-up of each below to show off the richness of the colors (in the blue one) and to show the detail of the edges of the “English Garden” one.












For my latest project, I finished knitting a wine bottle cozy.  It was an easy pattern.   However, I’m not really fond of how it turned out.   The bottom was a bit lumpy which made it a bit unsteady, which isn’t very practical.     





Of course, I have to get in one last photo.  Yes…you guessed it!   Another thistle photo.   I love the contrast in this one – you can really see the spiny stalk and leaves in this photo…as well as the fascinating construct of the thistle itself.
