Time flies..........

When you have no time to knit!
Well, I suppose that isn't true, I have time..... but not to work on what I want. Somehow this month exploded with things that I have to get done in smaller time frames, and it is encroaching on valuable knitting time!! I hate that! My socks are done..... but not blocked! So I will share them of course!

I think they are smashing, so I started a new pair in some of the yarn I dyed in Wilton cacke colours this past spring/summer. Now these are fun!

I had no idea how the colour would turn out when I dyed them, and knitting with that yarn is turning out to be a mystery.... it seems to be spiraling the colours, which is neat! I didn't plan that! Here is a picture from when I dyed it, with a little friend! LOL
So I have learned some lessons on dyeing from this, how I'd like to have it next time, what colours I think would work well on an overdye, that kind of thing. Later guys.

Yup, the shawl got blocked. I need to take full pics of it, but the weather here has been so crappy that I don't want to take it outside where it would look awesome on the bushes in front of my porch. Maybe I will have dh take a photo of it on me tomorrow. Thanks for visiting me as well :O)
