Slow News Day on the Knitting Front

I've been plugging away on the lattice looking scarf, but no new picture because the bit I did yesterday looks pretty much identical to the bit I did last week.

I did finish the new toes for my old socks.















So what next? I have most of a 100 gm ball of Opal 6 ply left (used part for heels and toes). Its a color that reminds me of Goldenrod copier paper - not too crazy about it, but I bought it because it was deeply discounted. So maybe I can tone it down a bit by holding it together with the Regia on the right.


Together they will be pretty thick, but winter's coming. Thick socks are good. Will there be enough, considering that I've already used up two heels and two toes worth? A little suspense keeps the knitting life interesting.

I think sunny toes are a good idea.

Opal yardage is very generous. I'm sure you will have enough yarn. And very toasty toes this winter!

I'm a sucker for deeply discounted yarn, then end up with stuff I don't know what to do with.

Bring on the sunny yarn, it might help with the grey skies and cold weather!
