We Call them Girly...

... just not to their faces! I've joined this:



because I want to get better at multicolored knitting and because my senior-in-high-school daughter loves all things piratey. She's chosen GIRLY colors for her hat: dark purple and lavendar. ButI had an idea for even girlier pirates and just had to swatch it with random stuff from the stash :



I'ts Bernat Softee Baby in variegated pastels, contrasted with a mystery yarn in black. I love it! I may make this one for me... with sparkly little beads in each eye socket.


In other news, I've finished my Broadripple Socks. I used Cascade Fixation, in variegated purple. We seem to have a thing for purple around here.

congrats on winning the STR from Cara. I found your name/blog on her page. I am also from NC, and I knit and really want to start quilting. However, I am not into the other scary activities that your into, whitewater rafting, yikes! I assume you live near raleigh since you went to a knit thing at Cameron Village. I graduated from Peace College in 1987. I miss Raleigh. Well, have fun knitting your new socks!

I just finished the "they call them pirates" in a scarf - What fun and my son loved them for Christmas. I love the way that you used color for the fair isle! Sue
