It has been a busy week and I’ve gotten a lot accomplished.
I finished the hitchhiker scarf. I used Wollmeise superwash yarn in the color Am Kalten Polar with a size 2 needle. I really enjoyed knitting this pattern.
I also completed the May 2012 Dishcloth KAL. The pattern is Rippling Diag by Janet Nogle. I used Sugar and Cream in hot lime with a size 7 needle. After completing this cloth, I took a picture and saw that I made an error in the pattern. I am not ripping this cloth out, so it is what it is.
One Nanaimo sock is completed. I used size 1 needles with Soctopus Sokkusu original yarn in the river styx color. Love this pattern and yarn.
The exciting part of this week is that I got my Dancing Dog Dyeworks yarn in Waltz Worsted. She had a big update and I was shocked that I was able to get 7 (yes 7) skeins. Now I can start knitting monsters.
The colors from top to bottom are: Owlies, Jolly, Puppytails, and Zombie Dog.
The colors in this group from top to bottom are: Mickey’s Madness, Cupcake and Kelp Forest.
I also bought three skeins of Noro Silk Garden in the color 354 to make a Noro shawlette.
And, I was able to snag a skein of Wollmeise in the color Lila Ludmilla. This was a tough buy as her web site was running really slow. After I bought this skein, I realized I already had this color, but I figure I can put it to good use.
So, now I want to finish the second Nanaimo Sock (I need to cast on for it though) and the Color Affection Shawl. I think I will cast on for the Noro Shawl soon.
Monday, I get new windows for my bedroom, so I will be busy tomorrow cleaning out the room and covering furniture up in anticipation of the install. New Furniture has been ordered. Now, I just need to get the room painted and buy some curtains.
