Happy Day Before Thanksgiving

The socks are finished and the colors remind me so much of fall. It is breezy and raining like crazy here so leaves are falling all around us. We had such a mild fall that the leaves are actually on the trees much later than normal this year.

The socks were knitted with Crystal Palace "Maizy" yarn. The color is "Indian Corn".

WIPS and Where Does The Time Go?

Now I am going to sound really old by asking, "Where does the time go?" I can't believe that my last blog entry was in September. What happened to October? This time of year I am gearing back up for tax season, taking classes, exams, training, etc. I don't have as much reading and knitting time it seems. However, I seem to have started plenty of projects. Hopefully, soon I will finish a few. The socks that were in the September blog are almost done. I just need to sit down and kitchener the toe of the second sock. Then I can post them finished. I did finish the gold prayer shawl I was knitting. I loved working with this color - so rich and creamy.

I have an Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise sweater on the needles. This pattern is so much fun to knit. Here is a shot of it not folded and another with the sleeves folded up. I am using a combination of worsted weight yarns on a size 8 needle.

Other projects on the needles include a baby afghan for a coworker of DH and a "scrap" towel for my laundry room. I am using leftovers of dishcloth cotton for this towel, knitting along till a color runs out and then starting another. This should definitely brighten up the laundry room - kind of a crazy quilt towel.

I hope soon to be posting a couple of FO's.
