Yes, it is! Especially when a project has been on the needles for awhile.
I finally completed the Sheldon Blanket. I used a size 7 needle and Knitpicks shine yarn in french blue, pea pod and cream. Now all I have to do is knit Sheldon the turtle. This will be for my nephew Carter.
Also completed are the USA socks. I used Lollipop yarns in the USA color with a size 1 needle. The pattern is a basic sock pattern. I love striped yarn (especially Lollipop yarns) and it knits up fast cause you can’t wait for the next stripe to show up.
I had to start another sock, so I am using the Cherry Lane pattern by Felicia Lo with her Sweet Georgia tough love sock yarn in the cherry color and a size 1 needle. The cuff is complete on the first sock. This will be my 72nd pair socks. I got new bedroom furniture and moved things around in my drawers, so now I have two, yes 2, drawers of socks with room to grow. Looking forward to colder weather so that I can wear them (well, not really looking for colder weather, but this next heat wave we are going to have could be shorter).
I worked on the Ruby monster and got the arms finished. I am using Lorna’s Laces worsted yarn in Zombie BBQ with a size 5 needle. Now I just have to do the legs and stuff it.
I was working on a Copykat shawl by Rose Beck. When I started this project, I decided to just knit a plain shawl. Then it sat. I started it up again and didn’t know where I was. Since I didn’t have much completed on it, I ripped it out and am now using her Diagonal Rib Body. I am enjoying how this is turning out. I am using a size 5 needle with Swans Island merino wool fingering yarn in marine blue. The pattern is easy, but now the stitches are growing, so it is taking longer to knit a row. The ruffle that goes around the whole shawl will really take a lot of time.
Guess, it’s back to knitting!
