In the good news category - I FINALLY finished my monkey socks! Yeah - my first pair of socks. They are now proudly owned by my Mom. I made them for her to wear to the CAL games. For those of you who don't know, CAL is UC Berkeley and their colors are blue and gold. My folks have season tickets to the CAL football games and now Mom can arrive in style. GO BEARS!

Funny thing, Color
I have been struggling with my Chevron Scarf. Not the knitting of it but the color. In my previous post I expressed my concern that my color choices would clash. In fact, they blend so well that I became worried they were too similar. So I picked two different colors that were more dramatic. With the help of Holis at my LYS, we checked out the Ravelry photos of the Chevron scarves (there are A LOT of them!) and realized that the ones I was most attracted to were a blend of a multi-colored yarn and a more solid yarn. So I tried the pink and blue combination. I keep changing my mind as to whether or not I like it. I want to rip it out, then I like it, then I want to rip it out again. What do you think? The one thing it did help me decide is that I actually really like the first color combo!
