We had a three family yard sale today and I am exhausted. I did pretty well and most of the stuff I had left over, I took to a local church for their sale. It was wonderful to get rid of that stuff.
I was worried about the weather. I was afraid it would rain. The day started off foggy, but the sun came out and it turned hot. So glad that is over with.
I did finish one of the Cookiea’s Daphne socks from the sock club. The yarn is Metamorphosis from a verb for keeping warm. This is a sport weight yarn and has silk in it. I wasn’t sure how I would like knitting with it, but it’s not bad and I like how the pattern is turning out. The color is Sugar Jets and I used a size 1 needle.
Still working on the Sugared Violets shawl, but I did buy more yarn.
I purchased some Plucky Knitter single ply merino in the color Barndoor.
One of my knitting friends bought some of Sanguine Gryphon’s Mithral lace weight yarn and I loved what she knit. So, I had to buy some for myself. I got a skein of The Reader and Paesaggio a Bordighera.
I love Madelinetosh’s Pashmina yarn, so I bought 3 skeins to make the Sothia shawl. I got 2 skeins of Cloak and 1 skein of Antique Lace.
I’m not knitting the Stephen West Mystery shawl after all. I waited to see some of the spoiler pictures and I am not thrilled with the pattern. I don’t believe that I would wear the shawl, so I’m not wasting good yarn on something I won’t use just to participate in a Mystery KAL. I am really disappointed. I loved the Daybreak shawl so much and plan on knitting another.
Off to knit and then relax for the rest of the day.
