On the Needles ~ Way Too Much!

Doesn't everyone have some fall back projects? I seem to have them everywhere, ones to turn to when some other project is driving me crazy. At the moment I am working on two shawls and getting lots of experience with ripping and reknitting. Whenever I want to throw up my hands, that's when I turn to something "plain." (I never ever say simple or easy because then if I run into trouble I feel really silly.) So here they are, my two sanity savers of the week:


This is my second Brown Sugar sock, a plain vanilla one. The yarn color is called brown sugar, but don't ask me why.


GS David loves the color green, and when I saw this yarn at Spin A Yarn last weekend, it just had his name on it. The pattern's a row of 1/1 ribbing followed by a row of plain knitting, but now I'm wondering whether there will be enough yarn. Time will tell. And the shawls? They are in Time Out for the moment.......

Love the Brown Sugar sock! Love the colors in the green yarn.
Sorry you are ripping and reknitting. Not fun. Good to have something "plain" to take your mind off your ripping.

Sorry about your ripping - I'm doing the same this week. Love the yarn colors.

That Brown Sugar sock is awesome!

I agree with the others about the Brown Sugar sock and yarn. It't fabulous!

Interesting pattern for the hat: I'm going to try to remember it. The ribbing shows more on the inside of the hat than on the outside.

It's all Greek to me. =) Love that green yarn, particularly.

LOVE the simple sock construction and letting the yarn show off. Is the green going to be a hat???

That is such a beautiful green yarn. I don't knit and rarely crochet, but once in awhile I will walk the yarn isle and am just in love with some of the gorgeous colors and textures available.

Time out indeed! I know what you mean about returning to a more simpler project in the midst of a challenging one...plough on!!

All my knitting has been in time out for the past few days... not because I wanted to, but too many things going on... I think I am having DTs. ;) blessings ~ tanna

Thanks for stopping by my blog. So, I wanted to check out yours! Love, love, love the socks. Beautiful yarn. I am getting ready to start on a new pair of socks! It's hard to pass up sock yarn...and who can't use another pair of socks!!
You live in a beautiful part of the country. I enjoyed looking at the lovely pictures of west coast scenery!
