Even though it’s been really hot this week, I have been knitting and I’ve gotten quite a bit accomplished. I need to knit because I have other projects itching to get started.
I finished the July Dishcloth KAL. The pattern is really cute. It’s called Knitted Mini Wash mitts by Deanna Caswell and Daisy Siskins (from Little House in the Suburbs). I used a size 6 needle with Peaches in Crème in red and Sugar and Cream in white.
I did get the body finished of the Ruby the Huggable Monster. Still have to do arms and legs. I am using a size 5 needle with Lornas Laces Worsted Yarn in the color Zombie Barbeque.
I got a lot further with the Karen’s sock by Monica Jines. I am working on the foot and hope to complete one sock by the end of next week if not sooner. I am using a size 1 needle with Socktopus Soccusu yarn in lime and basil. I really am enjoying the pattern in this sock. I love Monica Jines’s patterns.
I haven’t been knitting much on my fair isle hat. I did get a little further. My goal is to work on it more this coming week. I am using a size 7 and 8 needle with Madelinetosh Vintage yarn in scarlet and tern.
I was going to start on another Color Affection shawl (still have to block the last one), but I think I will pick up a work in progress called the Copycat shawl. Once I get further along with this shawl, I will start a color affection shawl in Shalimar Breathless.
