Back to knitting.

After that rather long break from knitting (almost two weeks?) to crochet the Rainbow Doily, I am back at knitting again. I've picked up the red Twisted Rib Tank again and last night finished the first "neck side" of the front. I usually knit both sides at once using seperate balls of yarn, but seeing as I am working from one large cone I have elected to do them individually this time. Everything looks good so far and I should be able to get the other "neck side" done tonight.

When I was blocking the Rainbow Doily I also finally took the time to block a little knitted doily I did a long time ago. It will likely be my first AND last knitted doily. I never was really too happy with this one and that is why it hid in the back of my closet for months. Here it is in all it's "ho-hum" glory. The colors are WAY off.......that background is actually a snow-white tablecloth!

Wow! I was wondering what that blue background was! (didn't remember ever seing that at your house) so, what color is the doily, really?

The doily is beige, but lighter than pictured. I tried using photoshop to lighten it, but it lost all detail in the process so I returned it to its original state.

This is pretty. Very delicate looking.
