It was a Good Week

I've had a good knitting week. I was able to finish the last two comfortghan squares I needed for my commitment of 24. I used the pattern Simple Garter Lace Square by Mary Dixon and did two using Red Heart Super Saver yarn in the Hunter Green colorway and size 8 needles.

I got them blocked and sent out to my Yahoo Group sister, who assembles the comfortghans.
I also did two premie hats for the Knit One Save One project. Kraemer Yarn participated several years ago and sent around 700 hats to them, so they are working on sending more again in January. I used the pattern on the Knit One Save One web site, but knit it in the round, so I didn't have to sew it together. This was my first hat and it was really easy.

Next, I plan to knit a hat I saw on the Purl Bee blog using Jade Sapphire silk cashmere yarn and Rowan Kid Silk Haze. I got two colorways (Tea Leaves in Jade Sapphire and Majestic in Kid Silk Haze and Pebble Beach in Jade Sapphire and Pearl in Kid Silk Haze). I can't wait to cast on. Maybe this weekend.

I got the first shipment from the Unique Sheep Rubber Ducky Club. It's so cute and the colorway is great. It's in Pima Petit cotton yarn in the frosty colorway. The soap is also called Frosty. Isn't the Santa Rubber Ducky cute? I also love the project bag that game with it. I think I'm going to love this yarn club.

Sundara Yarns also sent out the first shipment of Sock Yarn. The colorways are from left to right: Bronzed Forest, Wine, and Brown Sugar over Buttermilk.

I'm excited because I was able to buy more Sweet Georgia Superwash Sock Yarn. The colorways from top to bottom are: Cranapple, Suspense, and Lichen. I love her yarn. I'm so glad that she is back dying yarn again.

Well, off to knit. I want to knit on my scarf tonight and I started a sock using the Malabrigo sock yarn, plus I would like to cast on for the hat using the Jade Sapphire and Kid Silk Haze.
