It’s been a productive week

I finished the Colonade Shawl by Stephen West.  I used Madelinetosh Vintage in cove and thyme with a size 10 needle.  Loved the yarn and the project.

I also finished the Froot Loop Socks.  The yarn is Fibernymph Dyeworks in the Froot Loop color with size 1 needles.  This yarn is really nice and I love the striping.

I also completed the June 2012 Dishcloth KAL.  I used Peaches and Crème in light blue with a size 7 needle.  The pattern is Summer Daze by Sue Schaeffer.

I’m going to take another Fair Isle class at the end of June for review.  So I bought Madelinetosh Vintage yarn in tern and scarlet for that project.

Dancing Dog Dyeworks had an update so I had to buy more yarn for Monster projects.  I got the Twist Sock in the Dawn Stripe and Waltz Worsted in bright tropical blue and lime.

And Gnome Acres makes great yarn for Monsters, so I got her worsted yarn and fingering yarn in the color Franklin for a KAL in July.

I couldn’t resist getting Dragonfly Fibers yarn in her Dragon Sock in the Maggie May color (for my Maggie May of course).

Since I finished off several projects, I got back to knitting on my Color Affection Shawl.  I have 4 more repeats until I get to the border, so that project is getting closer to the finish line.  Maybe I will get to finish that up next week.  I really would like to make another shawl using this pattern.  I am already eyeing some yarn for it.  We will  see what happens.  Plus, I have to finish sewing up my Iris monster.
