A teal room?

After painting my daughter's room I realized that most of the rooms in our house need painting.
Who would have thought that picking colors for a room can be almost as exciting as pondering over your next knitting adventure. Obviously there are more choices than beige, light brown or white, which seemed to be the favorites of the previous house owner. Yes, I actually could have a teal wall in our office! Yeah!  Doesn't Seaside Resort sound promising? I'll keep you posted.


Knitting


I've just finished another Patches Baby Sweater. This time in the bigger size using one skein of Online Supersocke 6 ply.

What's going on in my knitting life right now:


A KAL for my design Color Box (a free pattern) on the ravelry Wool-Aid charity knitting  group:



Since I don't have enough yarn for the main color of the body. I decided to make a second row of mitered squares. We'll see how this comes out. I also will work the sweater in the round in garter stitch this time. It's fun to play around with my own pattern.....

Further I'm working on another Patches with the cutest monkey buttons ever, prepare classes,
finish socks and work on a new design....... I wish I could knit faster!!!!!
