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.
