Knitting and Stitching

Since starting work I have to knit and stitch when I can.  Lately it's been in the car before work or during my lunch hour, with marathon stitching on Saturday.  Saturday is usually my day to do nothing!

I finished a pair of socks...

Socks are finished! #ankletsock #lornaslaces #knitting
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock (size 2 dpns)

I used this pattern - An Anklet a Day.  

I also started Hourglass Throw by Brooklyn Tweed.  I have had this yarn in my stash forever!

Started the other day. #knitting #hourglassthrow #brooklyntweed #debbieblissyarn #merinoaran
Debbie Bliss Merino Aran (size 8&9 needles)

I have also been working on Manor at Peacock Hill.  I decided to change the called for green colors for the peacock to a more teal color to match the pattern picture.  The colors I chose are GAST Brethren Blue and CC Shamrock.

Thinking of using GAST Brethren Blue and CC Shamrock instead of the called for green colors to make the peacock more blue like the picture. #manoratpeacockhill #withthyneedleandthread #crossstitch

The start of the peacock using GAST Brethren Blue. I think it's a pretty close match to the picture. #manoratpeacockhill #withthyneedleandthread #crossstitch
35 ct. Olde Town Blend (various cotton over-dyed threads, 1 over 2)

I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out.  I also couldn't resist starting another With Thy Needle & Thread project - Paper Snowflakes.  

I couldn't resist starting this one after seeing @cranberrysampling's framed. #papersnowflakes #withthyneedleandthread #crossstitch
40 ct. Vintage Pecan Butter by Lakeside (Various cotton over-dyed threads, 1 over 2)

I'm loving it!  Too bad I can't stitch at my desk! :)
