Cold Dreary Sunday

What a yucky Sunday it is. We had a little bit of snow, but it's a dreary cold day outside. I'm beginning to dislike Sunday's because I don't like going to work on Monday's. I'd rather have the week start on a Tuesday. I guess it's because I would be home on a Monday when everyone else would be going to work. Well, only 8 more Monday's to go and I will have off on a Monday.

This week did fly by. I finished the Mid Month KAL for my dishcloth group. The pattern is called Circle cloth by Hakucho. I really liked this pattern. It is so different. You can knit it in one color or in two colors. I used Fiesta in Peaches n Creme with size 6 needles. The color reminds me of warmer weather.

I worked on the Vintage scarf this week and the Central Park hoodie sweater.
I found out this week that a new yarn shop is opening up in Bethlehem called The Knitters Edge. Our knitting teacher is moving over to that shop, so this Friday will be my last at Kraemers and after that I will be going to the new shop in Bethlehem. I will miss Kraemer's but I am really looking forward to the new shop. Kraemer's hardly has a good selection of different yarns anymore and the new shop will probably carry alot of Plymouth yarns as well as other brands. The shop won't be open for business until the middle of March, but we will be able to have class there and scope out the different yarns (hopefully) until it opens.
I did purchase two more skeins of Twist sock yarn from Sunshine yarns. The colorways caught my eye. The top one is called Nagini and the bottom one is called Tonics.
