Why this journey?

I've been retired now for over a year. Husband has been sick but is now doing quite well with new pacemaker. I continue to knit and knit and crochet. Recently I became friends again with my sewing machine so you will see some of those projects, too. Thanks for reading.

Sunshine and Glubs

Finished!  One Glove!  Oh, and it's wonderful.  Plus I had such a good time working on it.
The sun shining on the left side.  Wonderful to see.
On to Glub2.  I know.  I said I was gonna switch back and forth as I completed each finger.  Well, I just got in a groove and kept going til this one was finished.

On the not-so-good-news side -- they may be a bit big.  I chose the large size, because I have large hands and unless I buy men's gloves can't find them to fit.  The cheap stretchy $1.00 gloves work until my fingers poke thru.  So I knit the large size.  Now I have gloves that fit and I don't think I know what that's supposed to feel like!

I will have some yarn left over when the other glove is complete.  Thinking I'll buy something to coordinate with this pink stripe and make some sox.  Maybe with a solid heel and a stripe across the instep plus a few stripes on the band.  Ideas and thoughts so far.

Back to the other glub.  These are great fun so I'm already looking at other patterns.

One more picture to show how the self-striping yarn worked out.  See the orange finger tips on three of the fingers and almost on the thumb?  Kewel, I think.

Point yourself toward some light and go there.  Tis a peaceful place to be.
