An Innocuous WIP

Aaaah, a Christmas Endpaper Mitt. Nothing special about it. . . . unless you are photographing it at halftime of the UM-OSU game. Then, it becomes a strange omen. . . while this is technically burgundy (KnitPicks Essential), it looks oddly like Scarlet. . . . hmmm . . .
It was nice and sunny, so here are a few more project pictures. I definitely have an endpaper problem!
And I think I'm done with dishcloths for a while, too :) The last thing OTN is the first of Deb's socks. I'm REALLY enjoying the yarn. . it's KnitPicks Felici. I have to say it's one of the nicest yarns I've knit with in a while. I expected it to be self striping essential, but it is not splitty like I'm noticing with the Essential. I just hope the socks fit her. I couldn't remember her shoe size, just that it's near my size. The sock so far is a smidgen tight on me, so fingers crossed.
I'm also starting to tackle stash organization. Currently, all my yarn lives in bags shoved in a closet. Or on top of my sewing machine. Or on top of the cabinet in my sewing room. I need something more manageable. I bought two pieces to start and unfortunately it's only holding a small amount of stash, but at least it's a start! I'll show pictures when it's organized. But for now.. . . off to painting!

Those endpaper mitts are great!! But I have to agree, that first one is a bit to scarlet to knit during the UM-OSU game.

Totally love the endpaper mitts! I'm thinking I need a pair of those. BTW, did you know there is a beagle group on Ravelry? If you are not already a member you ought to join!!!!
