I have my knitting mojo back

I am so glad.  I was knitting, but really wasn’t finishing anything.  This past week I finished the toe up sock I was working on.  The yarn was Online Candy Color 1177.  I used size 2 needles.  I am so excited because I figured out Judy’s magic cast on and also did a stretchy bind off.  I really enjoyed knitting these socks and will definitely do another toe up sock.

I also completed the June Monthly Dishcloth KAL.  The pattern was Happy Father’s Day by Leah Porter.  I used size 7 needles with Peaches and Creme in an olive colorway.  This was a cute cloth to knit.

I started an afghan for Maggie.  I am using a Ripple afghan pattern by Plymouth yarns with Fantasy Naturale in color 9005 (purple) and size 8 needles.  I am really enjoying the pattern and also the yarn.  The pattern calls for two different colors, but I am only using one color.

Since, I am enjoying this so much, I bought another color (9703) to make another afghan in a different pattern.  The yarn is a multi color in pinks, orange, and yellow.

I also started a scarf using Araucania Ulmo Multy yarn in color 715 (purple and green) and size 7 needles.  The pattern is called Ulmo Multy Wave scarf.  I figured that this would knit up quickly.  It only calls for one ball of yarn.

Last, but not least, I started the Buttons Cardigan for my niece’s baby.  The yarn is Katia Tobago in color 93 and size 5 needles.  I don’t know the sex of the baby yet and yes, she wants to know so she can plan on what colors to buy.  I had to get some purple in the sweater (purple is her favorite color), so I went with this yarn.  I hope to finish this quickly, so I can give it to her right away.

I have finished the collar and started on the body of the sweater.  There is no seam sewing as this is a top down sweater and you can put buttons on either side of the sweater.  I hope she likes it.

Great socks. Every time I do a toe up sock I think I should do it this way more often.
