Opal Heather and Finnley Heather

Hey Everyone!

This summer has been somewhat busy, and things like gardening and making jam have pushed knitting to the back burner.

Now that summer is winding down, I can shift more of my focus back onto Knitting.

I have been slowly working on a couple pairs of socks in recent weeks. For both pairs I am working on I am using KnitPicks Palette yarn, in the colorways: Opal Heather and Finnley Heather. I absolutely love the Finnley Heather color. Grey has become my favorite color.

At the looks of things, summer is finally quickly fading. When it is hot I don’t have much in the way of energy and desire to work on knitting.

Knitting through the Summer

Hey Everyone!

Since my last post, I have finished up these two pairs of socks.

The black pair is knit up from KnitPicks Stroll Tweed in Wellies Heather. The blue pair is knit up of KnitPicks Palette in Cyan. I used my US Size 1 (2.50mm) Double Point Needles.

The past few days I have been working on a couple new socks as well as a few other projects.

I currently am working on a pair of socks in Opal Heather, as you can see here:

as well as my second pair of Finnley Heather Palette socks. I can’t tell you exactly when Grey became my favorite color, though it is my favorite color because it reminds me of the cool, grey, overcast days we have here in autumn, winter and spring. As someone who doesn’t do well in heat, and has light sensitive eyes, I prefer the grey days of winter to the bright, sunny, hot days of summer.

Today we have gotten some rain, for the first time in two months. It has been so hot and dry this summer that this rain has been so welcome. I am hoping that at least some of it has gotten over the cascade range to central and eastern Oregon, as well as down to the southern part of the state that have been having so many wildfires without relief.
