Oh how I fought with the pattern, but the end results were beautiful~

Not a real clear picture, I was trying to capture the detail of the pattern

My friend Joyce gets to choose which she likes most.  The others I will sell.  I have a favorite, am waiting to see if it is the same as hers.

Arlington High School colors.

Candy Corn

Baby Bumble Bee

My favorite yarn Spud and Chloe
What does one do when one's computer is out of commission?  One knits:)  I finished the sweater I had fought with for so long.  The finished product was absolutely beautiful.  If I were to EVER make it again, it certainly would not be in the round and I would have to rework the charts.  My friend picked it up on Friday and according to Stan loved it. (Right Barb?)
The blue and yellow hats were knit for a friend.  She had ordered it in the fall and I did make her one.  The colors were not exactly what she had expected, so it went home on the head of a grandchild.  I am hoping these colors suit her more.  I knit four so she could choose one she likes.
The baby socks are just to replenish my supply and the hat because I think they are so stinking cute:)
Currently I am working on a lovely pair of fingerless mittens and then on to a darling baby dress that the designer so kindly donated the pattern to me for my project.  Those little random acts of kindness mean so much.  I am really excited to get started on it:)
So...........I really had a productive week while I was computerless.  Guess I should discipline myself to only an hour of computer time so I can continue to make inroads with my knits.

I missed you but am happy you were able to use your time wisely.

Is that the sweater you were working on while we were at your house?
