Keeping on Knitting

Yeah, so new background image for the blog. Not what I was intending that piece for, but it seemed rather fitting. Not sure if I like it. I'll have to play with it a bit to get the image about where I want it. It's a work in progress.

I didn't do much knitting this past week. I was dealing with headache issues. But I did start a new pair of earrings...


They just need the hardware. I plan to put them up for sale. And I have a question for all of you: If you were going to look for a pair of these, how would you describe them? (I'm trying to figure out what keywords to tag them with. Knitted earrings and knitted beads don't give me earrings that look anything like this.)

And since it's kind of become this weekly thing, mostly because I like to see that I'm actually making progress, the backdrop last week...


And where it's at this week...


That's just about the whole skein. (It's a one pounder.)

What do you think of the new background image on the blog? Should I keep it or go back to the old one?

  1. Regarding the earrings, the first thing that pops in my head when I look at them is "bobble." And I know quite a few stitch patterns feature bobbles. Just an idea.

    As far as the new background goes, I like the pattern, but the color seems a tad dull. Changing it to blue or green or purple, for example, would really make a difference, I think.

  2. Yarn balls? No idea. Of course, you are asking the wrong person.
    The background really fits you.

  5. I like the new background. It fits nicely on my monitor and makes me think of yarn which is what you are always spinning.

  8. I like Audra's bauble suggestion.

    And I like the background, too. It's an interesting pattern. And like Michael said, it fits nicely on my monitor. :)

    1. Yes, sometimes things just need to be spruced up a bit.

  13. Change the background to royal blue or deep purple knitted. It would really pop. The earrings remind me of hot air balloons, but I know that wouldn't do as a description. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. Unfortunately, the piece I'm knitting is this beige. I thought it'd be a nice change from the bright orange.

      Hot air balloons... Now, that's an interesting description.
