We have been lucky so far, but today we had snow. It looks as if it was at least 6 inches. I’m kind of glad that it was on the weekend. At least I didn’t have to worry about driving in it. There is something about when it snows outside. It makes you want to snuggle up in the house and hibernate. It was a good day for knitting.
I completed the Mid Month Dishcloth KAL for January. The pattern is called Moss and Leaf Cloth by Andi Worthy. I used a size 6 needle with Peaches and Crème in Verde Green.
I also finished the Christmas Socks I was working on. I used a basic sock pattern with a size 1 needle and I used String Theory Colorworks yarn in Kinetic Energy with an afterthought heel. So I’m all set for next Christmas.
I think the next sock I knit will be one from the December shipment of the Cookie A sock club. The yarn is Bugga in the Heuschrecke colorway. This is one of the last skeins of yarn from the Sanguine Gryphon since they have split up. Tomorrow, I will wind the yarn.
I am close to finishing the Nubby Noro Mittens. I am using Madelinetosh Vintage yarn in the tart color way with size 5 needles. I finished one mitten except for the thumb and the second mitten is almost finished too. I used the kitchener stitch for the top of the mitten and changed the instructions for the thumb on the left mitten to make it easier. I can’t wait to use these mittens.
I’m still working on the Shaelyn shawl. I have finished the fourth repeat. I believe that I will do an extra 2 repeats before doing the edging.
I did get some new yarn. This was yarn I ordered before the end of last year. It’s from Fibernymph Dye Works. She does wonderful striping yarn. I got Peanut Butter and Jelly, Popeye’s Revenge, and Fruit Loops in her Bounce base (80% superwash merino, 20% nylon).
I really love the Fruit Loop color!
