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.
