This is a pair of socks that I finished a couple of days ago. Before I started knitting the socks, I was looking at the yarn and couldn’t make up my mind if I really liked it or not. I didn’t buy the yarn, if was given to me. After completing a few inches on the sock, I came to the conclusion that I did like it. I guess it just took seeing how the color combination worked up in the fabric.
Here's another pair that I finished yesterday, then washed and blocked them. The colors remind me of a shirt I had in the mid to late 80's of Alexander Julian.
Stroll by Knit Picks. Colorway is Cartoons.
This is a pair I finished a few weeks ago. The yarn is Felici that I got from Knit Picks. The colorway is Rainbow which they currently have back-ordered.

Just a couple more doilies. I have a lace scarf that I've got to block and then I'll post. Of course, the last doily picture still has to be blocked as well.
I had a bunch of worsted weight acrylic yarn that I wanted to use up so I double stranded the yarn and used a larger needle size. This is just a 7 x 7 rib throw. The only thing I would do differently if I was knitting again would be to add an additional 7 stitches in garter on the other side. I didn't think about it and one side is stockinette and of course it wanted to curl. To finish it, I just added a single crochet stitch around the entire piece.
This was an enjoyable knit.
