What a beautiful day we had today

It was 83 degrees outside and the sun was shining.  It felt so good, but I know we are going to go back to cold weather and I will really be sad.  It is so nice to have this warm weather early.

Today, I completed the Basic sock that I was working on.  I used Online Sportive sock yarn in color 1167, which is a blue multi color yarn, with a size 1 needle.  They look like spring.

I also completed the Mid March Dishcloth KAL.  The pattern is called Blackberries by Daisy (Tomato Lady).  I used a size 6 needle with Sugar and Cream yarn in Robins Egg Blue.

I did buy some new yarn.  My intent is to make monsters or toys with this yarn.  It’s Dancing Dog Dyeworks yarn, which you have to stalk when there is an update.  I got a kit with Flamenco DK yarn in Sugar Skulls and a Hot Pink.  I just may knit a monkey with this yarn using a pattern by Rebecca Danger.  I also got Waltz Worsted in the color Lacey Jane.

I finally bought a skein of Watermelon fingering weight yarn by Abi Grasso (KnitPurlGurl on Etsy).  One of my knitting friends got this yarn and knitted up a pair of socks.  They looked great.

Last, but not least, I got a Bertie Lou kit from Happy Knits.  I wanted the blue color bird, but they were out of that color, so I got the Persian Rose kit.

So, I guess I better start knitting toys.
