Saturday Stash

I have only finished objects today.  That doesn't mean that there are not a bunch of unfinished bits and pieces off stage.  Oh, yes.  They are there.  It's amazing how loud yarn can be.  But I'm deaf to it right now.  Soon I must get a triage system going.

The red socks are done.  And have been worn.  Just being red makes them lovely and warm on a gray, rainy day.  But no photo since I forgot in my rush to wear them.  And now they are buried at the bottom of the laundry basket.  So not today.

I do have the white cardi finished, too.  I was really excited about the idea of bobbles inside the Fair Isle diamonds.  Now, not so much.  I don't seem to have the knack of keeping the bobbles white.  They look like Snoopy noses or black-eyed peas. When I made a white bobble over purple yarn, the result was a tiny purl bump that won't go away.  Makes me not love the sweater - just a little bit.  It's still nice and would be really pretty if I got it right.  Must be a trick. 

And these super-cute baby slippers.  Easy, easy design by Calista Yoo.  Really good for remnants of worsted. 

I'm out trimming the Christmas tree with the seniors this afternoon.  All part of a community fund-raiser which will have over seventy trees in the town square.  Should be fun - and beautiful when the lights  are lit up tomorrow night.

Very nice, beautiful sweater you knit. We are back on track and I hope reading schedule. We have been on Staten Island helping the storm victims and now in North Carolina with our daughter Jennifer, living in an RV the past month or so and for the next 2 or 3.

The slippers are adorable

I DO like that little sweater. I know how you feel about it not feeling right (I've been there) but from where I sit, if I had a grandbaby, I would be clammering to buy it from you.

I love both of your offerings today! They're beautifully executed, and the whimsy of the slippers tickles my fancy.

Love, love love those little slippers! I would knit them for reason why babies can have all the fun, is there?
I like the cardi too, and I'm sure the wearer won't be too worried about the whiteness of the bobbles.
I'm fascinated with how this 70-tree fundraiser works!

I've gotten to the point that I actually LOL when you post the words 'easy pattern' on your blog. :) Love the cardi and the slippers! And I know I would love the socks too- just because they're RED!
