Too Late For Xmas
One skein of yarn was neon pink and the other was black, so I put them together and matched a cranberry worsted with them. By the time I finished the hat, both skeins were a bit lean so I only worked one stitch up the center of the scarf.
Not wanting to slight my grandson, I knit a scarf & a fair isle hat to match his winter coat which is pumpkin orange with black trim. The fair isle design is from The Opinionated Knitter - one of the many charts in one of the early chapters. I worked it first in orange on black & then transitioned to black on orange.
The secondary color is really a pumpkin orange, not the rather gold color it shows in the photo. Now I need to find a box and get these shipped off.
On the moving front, the kitchen is painted and ready for the cabinet installation to start on Wednesday. We still need to pick out a stove, a microwave and a dishwasher. I spent a good part of today with the shop vac trying to make all the plaster dust from the patching & sanding disappear. That stuff is tenacious!
