Kitchen Nightmare

So I decided to start a mitered dish towel for my mom.  Not a good idea, while on painkillers.  I think I took out the same rows 2 or 3 times….it’s still a little foggy so my count could be off.  I think this is the slowest project I have knit in years…..focus Amy!!  Thankfully I am nearly done and might even surprise my mom with it, as a gift for their final walk through on their new home.  It was knit to celebrate her new choice in kitchen decor that I have to say, I love.  It’s about time she picked blue, my favorite color.  I do believe I still have nightmares about the 70’s orange kitchen of my childhood, fully equipped with orange Tupperware, orange-flowered wallpaper and I can’t recall but I am pretty sure the curtains were orange too.  My favorite room in the house, the color of the one fruit I don’t particularly like.  Now, after all these years,  I’m now 15 years married, my mom has finally come to her senses and picked the best color ever.  I am really looking forward to helping her decorate the kitchen….the rest of the house she is on her own, unless she wants a knit afghan.

    It looks good! Your knitting under the influence is still better than mine on my best day.

      Thanks! I’ve been knitting for a long time, most of it not under the influence, so maybe memory kicked in when senses didn’t!

        I learned how last October. I enjoyed it. I prefer crocheting. I’ve been doing that since I was about 10.

        I like crochet too. 🙂 I’ve made a few flowers recently to embelish some baby photo prop pieces I knit. Mostly I’ve just crocheted doilies. I struggle crocheting with yarn, baby booties did me in, I couldn’t get two to match.
