Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day.  It was a beautiful day out today.  The sun was out and it was warm out.  I got to sit on my back porch.  Maggie loved it.  She is so happy to be outside again.

Finished my Twisted Limone socks with the afterthought heel.  This worked out well and I’m glad I tried it.  I used Tangy sock in Fruit Salad with size 1 needles.  I will definitely use this heel with other striping sock yarns.

Then I started a basic sock pattern using Abtract Fiber Supersock in the color Sweet Pea and a size 1 needle.  I really like how this yarn feels and I love the color. It shows up lighter on the picture, but it really is a darker green.

I also finished the Monthly Dishcloth May KAL.  The pattern is Ulysses the Unicorn by Janet Nogle.  I used Peaches and Crème in gold with size 6 needles.

Still working on the chevron scarf and did very little knitting on the Mystery Stole 3.  I’m feeling really good though that I have completed a lot of old projects.

Cast on for a Cat Bordhi sock called Ocean Toes.  Two of my other knitting friends are also working on this sock.  I haven’t gotten very far, so no picture.  We want to have the leg of the first sock completed by Friday so I guess I have to get moving.

Off to knit!
