Some finished projects:
I finished the August Mid-Month KAL. The pattern is called Elvish Leaves. I used Size 6 needles and Peaches and Creme yarn in the country garden colorway.
After I finished it, I found a mistake (can you find it?), so I knit up another one using Peaches and Creme in shrimp. I like this one because you can see the pattern better. I really like the pattern and it was a fun knit.
Another sock is complete. For this one I used Trekking Zitron yarn in the colorway 167 with a basic sock pattern and size 2 needles.
I also started working on my Spring Forward socks again. I let them sit for awhile and now I am on a role. I hope to finish the first sock by today or tomorrow.
Of course, I had to start on another sock, so I am using Creatively Dyed Luxury 20 (it has some cashmere in it and is so soft) and size 2 needles. The colorway is Watermelon Juice.
I got a new phone. My Razer wasn't charging anymore and I was due for an upgrade, so I bought an Iphone. I love it! Especially since it is a phone and ipod. I found a pattern for an Iphone cozy, so I knitted that up using the Sanguine Gryphon's Eidos sock yarn in Pythagorus and size one needles. I modified the pattern a bit. I knit from the top down and used a K1 through the back loop and P1 for the ribbing. I didn't knit the pocket, but may add it later. I used the knitpicks metal double points for this pattern and let me tell you they are much nicer than bamboo for size 1 needles. In fact, I also like using the size 2 needles too.
Next week at my Friday knitting group, we are going to start knitting two socks on two needles. I have been procrastinating using two needles, but thought that I would jump in and try this method since several of us would be trying this at the same time. I am going to use the knitpicks circulars to knit these socks. Someone recommended using one metal and one harmony needle. It was better for them to keep track of what needle they were using when trying the two circular method.
At my Saturday knitting group, we are going to start knitting dishcloths to try out different patterns. We are going to knit a different pattern every two weeks. So, I am going to be knitting away like crazy this September. I don't think I have time to work or teach. It's time to retire again.
