i think it's because my hair has grown more silver, and i prefer how i look in a dark blue instead of green. or maybe, because my new glasses are a combination of a deep purplish blue and a lighter blue (though, i had also fallen in love with a green pair).
nevertheless … the socks i'm knitting now are green.
i've made all kinds of progress since my photo a few days ago. the color is a bit bluish in this photo --- the actual color is a bit more of an army green.
i'm not accustomed to knitting man-socks. they are bigger. more yarn. more knitting. but i don't mind. i have SO MANY SOCKS. and when marco visits, it will be winter here. and my apartment is cold … especially the floors.
though i have a ton of socks, my best protection from the cold floors are these nasty slippers!
for me, this is hitting the limit of publicly sharing … these are my ancient nasty nasty slippers. they are stained. worn. all kinds of nasty.
but i haven't found a replacement pair. they are down slippers, 'mule' style. made by sierra designs. i would gladly buy a replacement pair if i could figure out where. they are the warmest slippers ever. and i will keep wearing them until they deteriorate completely or i find worthy replacements.
