What's on your Needles
Once again it's Friday, and Judy is asking "What's on your needles today?" I have one and two-half socks. Seems an odd number, doesn't it? I finally decided that my yarn was not going to even out before I finished my second sock. And I was going to have almost a full sock worth of yarn left over. So, I abandoned the dark one, and started a new second sock.
The match is closer, although as I look at my ball of yarn I suspect it will still end darker than I wanted. I did consider knitting this one top down, to match the first bottom up sock. But I haven't knit enough socks to know if the end result would really be symmetrical, so I decided to take a chance on bottom up and I hope I finish before I hit the really dark section of yarn. I am really tired of this yarn now, so I think regardless of the result, we are going to call it a match and be done.
And in quilting news, I cut more triangles and plastered them up on my wall. One more row to go. I think I've decided to stick with the light triangles. But I do see some areas I don't like, so I will probably be rearranged the layout a bit before it's done.
