I love how the blue and yellow take your eyes away from that awful peachy coloured border. It hides it nicely and the blue is bold enough to draw one's entire attention. I fear what is under that wallpaper, so won't remove it until we're totally ready for any surprises! I think it could be 70's panelling over deteriorating plaster.
I realized that it might be a little bit of time before I bother to sit down and twist the fringes of the scarves. So here they are in all their unfinished glory. It was one neutral warp in camel and white. I chose to use a red for one scarf and a browny black for the second and a lovely pewter grey for the third. The fibre is a wool silk blend, which gives a nice sheen and lovely feel to the finished scarves. Our guild has a studio room and two of us did this quick project on the 8 shaft loom.
The neon cherry sock is coming along. It should be finished by now. However, when I got to the heel flap of the first sock, I realized that it was going to be too small, so I frogged it and started again, going from 64 to 72 stitches. The cabling is fairly intense and has little stretch for that area and the slightly thinner yarn is knitting up to a bit of a tighter gauge than I'd anticipated. No problems though, better to rip it out than have a sock that wouldn't fit anyone around here! I have to admit that the colour is quite cheerful and bright.
