Whenever I can't find the colors I want I dare to overdye. The yarn below is the same yarn as the yellow socks.

Needles, hooks, books and yarn donated to a local Elder care home. I will pop in now and then to see what projects the guys on here are up to.

Best of Luck....Knit on.

Sweater arm bind-off question

I have been working diligently on a sweater for myself and I am to the point of binding off the 2x2 rib sleeve. The original pattern called for an i-cord bind off, but I wanted the more traditional rib simply because it hugs my wrist better. Which bind off would you guys use? Just a regular 2 x 2 rib bind off? Will that be stretchy enough.

Latest Afghan

My nephew has been begging me for years now to make him an afghan. Well, I had other projects I had started and needed to finish before starting anything else. I was finally able to start on his afghan in March and this is the final product. I'm going to make him suffer a while longer and give it to him in August as a birthday present. One nephew down and two nieces and two nephews to go.
