It’s been a crazy week. Between working and cleaning out my basement, I have been keeping busy. I tried to set some knitting goals this week, but I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked.
I did complete two flag hot pads using Fantasy Naturale yarn in red, white and blue with size 7 needles. They turned out really cute. I need to try to knit a coaster with this pattern.
While I didn’t get all of my knitting goals finished this week, I did find time to get some yarn in the door. I got Happy Feet sock yarn by Plymouth in color 27 to make a shawlette.
Then I got Happy feet in black and Ty-Dy sock yarn in Tropicale to make socks. You use the black for the cuff, heel and toe and then knit 5 rows of the black and 5 rows of the Tropicale for the rest of the sock. This should work up really nice, once I finish the other two pairs of socks on my needles.
I also got a shipment from the Loopy Ewe. It’s been awhile since I ordered from there. I got Monkeypal sock yarn in Peppermint Ice Cream and Tiptoe through the tulips and Spirit Trail Fiberworks Sunna yarn in Turkish Stone.
I also got the Route 66 Lace Bag by 3 AM Enchantments. It’s a nice size bag and well made.
Well, off to knit, or maybe I will read.
