It was a nice week. I got a lot of things finished around the house, got to spend some time with friends, and got to knit, knit, knit.
I finished the Nanaimo Socks. I used Socktopus Sokkusu yarn in the river styx color with size 1 needles. I really liked knitting with this yarn and I loved the pattern.
I then started the Fruit Loop socks. Yarn is by Fibernymph dyeworks in her Bounce base, in the color Fruit Loops. I am using a size 1 needle. I love the yarn. It’s aptly named and I love the striping.
I have wanted to knit an animal or monster for awhile and finally knit up the Chubby Chirp pattern by Rebecca Danger. This knit up fast and was easy to do. I used size 6mm safety eyes. The yarn is Plymouth Jeanne worsted in colors 52 (blue) and 53 (orange). I used a size 5 needle. Next up is Iris the gourmet monster.
I haven’t stopped buying yarn. My local yarn shop got Madelinetosh Vintage yarn. They are having a knit-a-long using the Colonade pattern by Stephen West. I bought the colors Thyme and Cove.
I also want to knit the Vittorio Scarf/Shawl, so I bought Dyeabolical yarn in her strong arm skinny in gamma ray and BFF hardtwist 4 ply sock in We are all mad here. I love the colors.
It’s warming up this morning, so I guess I will go knit and read outside. Enjoy the weekend!
