Tweed and Shells

Here's the "Tweed" sock. Just one more to go. I really like how the two yarns meld together. I've tried making socks from the varigated several times and frogged them. But the mixture works well.

And here's some seashell fabric and a coordinating blue that I found at my favorite beach store (WalMart). I plan on making some valances for my living room windows. I just have verticals. One of the reasons that we bought our house was because of the amount of light. So, I'm going to just top the verticals. Hopefully there will be enough left over to make two coordinating table toppers - one round and one table runner. I need to pick up some bleached muslin for the lining. (Yes, I'm going to take the time to make them correctly.)

Well, that's all for today. It's flurrying around. I can't even believe it, well, I guess I can. But I'm ready for it to get warm. I must go do some laundry and get ready for a baby sighting! My great nephew is coming to my mom's place later this afternoon. Can't miss that!

Love the fabric, it will match your living room perfectly. Hope you "baby visit" was fun!

Beautiful sock!

I saw your comment on Norma's blog, so I had to come over and say hello. I'm a scoping knitter. We should have a blog ring or something.

What pretty fabric! Perfect for a beach lover. :)

We did get snow, but happily it wasn't as much as we expected, and temps a little over freezing have already melted most of it away. Now we're bracing for the nor'easter that's hitting us tomorrow. The storms just won't end!

The tweed sock is great, amazing how the colors lined up so well!

I just noticed that you have my blog linked, thank you! I've been meaning to put a blog link list up, and when I do I'll be sure to reciprocate. Have a great night!
