I saw someone’s Sock It To Me Monday post last night and was genuinely confused — I was sure yesterday was Sunday! Especially without a work schedule to ground me, my days are all muddled now. But apparently today is Tuesday so I’ll show you my finished sock a day late.
This is the Orange Jellyfish Dream yarn in my go-to sock recipe: ribbed leg, stockinette foot. I did most of the toe while on a Skype call Saturday night so it might not be exactly correct, but it’s toe-shaped so that’s a plus.
But the WIP getting all my attention right now is my new Olive Pink shawl. This is with four colors of SoLo from Lolo Did It and I am loving this project.
There are so many color changes and stitch changes that it keeps me going to get to the next section, and I’m really pleased with the colors I chose. I’m eager to get a little more green in there, though. Even though this is 20 sections and I’m only on the sixth, I have a feeling this shawl will fly off my needles. Especially since I might need some comfort knitting! The kids have both left today, on the way to Colorado. The girl needed to move out of her old apartment and into her new one, and the boy was desperate to get out of the house, so he joined her to help clean and pack. It’ll be a big change after having her home with us for about six weeks. I’d gotten used to it and we were all having a lot of fun, so I’m a bit blue today. But, c’est la vie, right?
Happy Tuesday, friends. Hope you have better weather than our gray skies and rain!
It is Tuesday! Though it’s hard for me to remember these days too, even with still having my work schedule since I’m working from home. Though I would trade our hot weather for your gray skies and rain.
Happy Tuesday! Love that sock and the combination of colors is great!!
Happy Tuesday! Your sock looks great, and so does the start of your Olive Pink! Relax and enjoy the quiet time 🙂
Those projects look great. So bright and happy, hopefully they provided some color in your grey day. It was great to chat with you Saturday!
Thanks, you too!
I’m having trouble with days too, that will be one good thing when I finally get back to work I suppose.
Your shawl is already looking gorgeous, the colours go so well together! I look forward to seeing more green in it, what with green being the best colour ever 😀
I love your sock colors. The first sock reminds me of Tetris.
Aww big hugs to having an empty house after 6 weeks!
