Blogger finally let me switch over to the new version, which means that for the first time in a month or so, I'm able to post here again! Which is great, since - much to my surprise - I've been knitting a lot of blue things. Totally unconsciously - or maybe subconsciously? Anyway, I surprised myself. A parade of blue FOs is below, and details of each are (somewhere) on my blog.
These are felted moccasins from the Beverly Galeskas book, in Paton's Classic Wool ("navy," I believe)
Believe it or not, these are another pair in the same pattern, in the same yarn - just a bad picture. They've since been finished off with brown suede slipper bottoms, and look very nice.
Fetching! Had to join the bandwagon, after all. They were made from the leftovers of the same Paton's yarn I used for the slippers.
Melon stitch scarf from Victorian Lace Today, in a baby-blue/teal baby alpaca yarn.
These are I call "peacock socks", out of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn up until the toes, where I ran out of yarn because of the dense eye-of-partridge heel flaps and immense gussets for my husband's flat feet - so the toes were finished with Paton's Kroy in navy. They look very cute on him, actually.
Thanks, all, for this wonderful forum. I've noticed that my politics-induced stress level really has gone down (a bit) since I've had you all to turn to!
