Current knitting projects

Hey y'all! Does anyone have any current or finished knitting projects to share? I was a pretty frequent knitter before we had kids, but I've never really consistently kept up with my projects since then. I have spurts of knitting, then I go dry again. 

I'm trying to get in the habit of knitting at least a bit each school day. Right now I'm working on a few dishcloths for a niece. 20181017_013744.thumb.jpg.1493f9da004fc157747c290d189f6883.jpg

The two white dishcloths are Sugar 'n' Cream cotton yarn and the blue one is Red Heart Scrubby yarn. It's the polyester version of the Scrubby. I have some cotton Scrubby, but I haven't tried it yet. I made 2 scrubby dishcloths for myself, and I like them so far. The yarn doesn't show any texture in the knit, so plain squares seem best for it.

I also have a twin sized afghan and 3 or 4 baby afghans started, but I don't have any pictures. One of these days I need to get brave and knit a sweater. :my_biggrin:

Yay! I finished a couple more things! I started and finished a simple hat for my oldest. It's just a basic pattern, but the color matches her new winter coat.

Today I finished a scarf (for my new-ish winter coat) that I started last winter.

My coat is gray and black on the outside, but the inner part is similar to the color of the scarf. I've decided that the coat has more of a robin's egg blue color, and the scarf is more of a light mint green color, but it still works. The stripes are actually gray, but I had a hard time getting the colors kind of right in the pic. 

My youngest wants a pair of orange and blue mittens next. I guess it's good to be in demand. ;)

I'm drowning in PhDs, a neverending garter stitch sweater for my niece, a sweater for me, a scarf for a friend, another for my sister. And I have some samples to knit for my LYS where I will be teaching classes next year.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      Are you an I Love Lucy fan?
      My two favorite episodes are "The Freezer" and "Lucy Does a TV Commercial."

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.

      I want to paint my hallway bright orange, my sons room bright sea green, and then the dilemma: What color for the laundry?

      Since April we have been looking for a house that has at least one bedroom on the main floor in one of several neighborhoods that are not too far (half hour or less) from our doctors and our kids.  We keep escalating what we are willing to pay.  We keep relaxing the “must haves” — but every house we have wanted has either gone under contract before we even saw it, or gone under contract as we were in the process of offering for it.  It is very discouraging.  I feel that I am living in limbo ever since the pandemic.
