I LOVE the colorway Fruit Punch. It reminds me of candy, or roses. It's so hard to get a good picture to respresent the true color, the green is so bright and pretty. The top pic is a tad closer in the pink range than the bottom one, but it's too light - and the next one is too dark! I just couldn't win today.
Below: I saw these on Dawn's Ravelry project page and loved them for my Mother in Law (who loves butterflies!). I made her two for her new kitchen. I hope she enjoys them! **ETA: here's the pattern: Lacy Butterfly Dishcloth. Sorry, I should've done that before!
They came to visit us yesterday so I was finally able to give her her socks as well as Grandpa's hats that I knit for him. (I didn't get pictures of those, they were just basic 1x1 and 2x2 rib hats.) I think I've already posted pics of the ones I DIDN'T give him, the burgundy one in Cleckheaton (I remade one in Plymouth Encore) and the Bernat Denimstyle one (I redid in the round instead of seaming, hubby got the seamed one).
Dawn and I are going to work on a sock pattern using Magic Loop in February. (Which neither of us has done before - but we're FEARLESS!! ). I got my yarn wound for that today. I'm using more Fleece Artist in either Blueberry or Burgundy.
I'm hoping these won't have the problems I ran into with the Fruit Punch skein. It had some spots that looked like it was cut almost all the way thru and was hanging on by a thread. I had to cut and reattach and I hate doing that with socks!! That was disappointing. Especially since it kept happening, has anyone else had that problem?
Busy Busy, games on Saturday, practice pictures tomorrow, Beta Club induction ceremony, cleaning and more cleaning, birthday party shopping, hair appointment (I need it desperately!) and all this while getting very little sleep. I hope it all goes smooth.
