The needles are clicking

I’ve been doing great in the knitting department.  I finished the mushishi cowl.  I used size 9 needles.  It came out great!

I also completed the February Mid Month KAL in my dishcloth group.  The pattern is Weave Me Wash Me by Alli Barrett.  This was a fun knit even though there was a lot of seed stitch.  I forgot that I was knitting the seed stitch pattern.  I used Peaches and Crème in shaded pastels with a size 6 needle.

Then, I finally blocked my calendar scarf that I finished in September.  It came out really nice.

Two of my knitting friends and I are knitting socks where we each take turns picking out the pattern.  We all finally finished the embossed leave sock, so here is the picture.

I was able to snag three skeins of Wollmeise Twin from the Loopy Ewe.  I got Red Hot Chili, Grapes for Sheri, and Gewitterhimmel.

And, last but not least, I was able to get another ball of Twisted Limone Tangy sock yarn in the jelly bean colorway.  This is a really nice color!

I’m getting close to finishing the Eternity Scarf.  I should be able to finish it by the end of the week.  I will soon be starting the feather and fan stitch on my Multnomah scarf.  I’m concerned about this part of the pattern as some knitter’s were having trouble with it. Only 6 more repeats of the pattern on the blanket I am knitting.  I should be finishing that up in the next two or three weeks.  It feels so good.
