knit

Two projects

A sweater for twe, which has been in progress since last fall. It kind of matches the one I made for fredrickegerman ages ago. In both cases, they were an exercise in "the yarn color when knit together does not match the yarn color when you look at it in the skein". Jan's I thought was going to be green and gold, and turned out to be green and orange; Kate's I thought was going to be dark green and light green, and turned out to be green and grey.

And, a pair of socks (and matching octopus). I think everything needs to have a matching octopus now, which does mean I need to go and make one to match the sweater, but I was too impatient after blocking for four days to wait longer to finish an octopus. :)
