Finished stuff

Still sick and every time I think I'm feeling better I'm just not. Thank God I work at home because I don't think I could manage a commute anywhere to work. No energy at all. However since I'm not dead I've been knitting.

These are socks for W. The light blue ones match the first pair I made him; the ones he grabbed, put on his feet, and ran off with before I got a chance to take a picture. I love how the striped ones match. Totally unplanned but funny how it worked out.
Another pair of left over socks for D1. She saw them already but won't get them until christmas.
Since they live in the woods my daughter has been a little afraid during hunting season. I happened to have a super saver skein of red heart viberant orange (it was on sale 3 yrs ago for 50 cents) so I made hats for N and W.
And I finally got around to blocking my brown shawl that will show no dirt and will not be washed until it smells. I'm not a brown type person so I really don't care for it all that much but it sure is nice to wear while working.

Your shawl is beautiful. I love the colors. Brown and black are some of my favorite colors to wear. Your grandson is just adorable sleeping there with his great socks on!!

That shawl is gorgeous! I'm sorry to hear that you aren't feeling better, but glad to hear from you in general.

Hope you feel better soon! I love the orange hats, great idea and the shawl is beautiful, but then I'm a sucker for brown.

Well, you may not like the shawl, but I think it is gorgeous. The colors are great and the design is perfect for it. :)

I love left-over socks. If you have a chance to hop onto Ravelry, check out the Monstersock (Monstersockken?) group. Great ideas and patterns for left-over sock yarn within! :)
