It’s going to be hot this week. Guess, I will spend my time knitting inside. This past week was a fixit week. We had Sears in to fix our icemaker for the refrigerator and a plumber in to fix our powder room toilet and we had to get a new water heater. I finally have hot water…..thank God!
I finished the Daybreak shawl by Stephen West. I really enjoyed this knit and really loved the yarn. It is so soft. I used size 4 needles with Turtlepurl Softshell Turtle toes in the coloways Kiping at Camp and Haeyyy!
In fact, I liked the pattern so much that I bought Skinny Bugga in Common Emerald Moth and Bess Beetle to do another one.
However, I won’t be starting this right away. I already started another shawl called Sugared Violets by Rose Beck and I plan on participating in the Stephen West Mystery KAL that starts on August 1st.
I also completed the July 2011 Dishcloth KAL. The pattern was Heart and Moss by Janet Nogle. I used Peaches and Crème cotton in red with a size 7 needle.
I am finished with one Boysenberry Yo sock by Cookie A. I am using size 1 needles in Solemate by Lorna’s Laces in the boysenberry jam color way. I highly recommend the yarn and I love the color and pattern. Can’t wait to get more. My local yarn shop is getting this yarn.
Well, I better get my cleaning in before it gets too hot. Stay cool where ever you are.
