Not much knitting happened this week. But, I did do some. I worked on the copykat shawl. I am working on the ruffle and it is slow going. I am close to hitting an inch and then will have one more to go.
I did finish the September 2012 Dishcloth KAL. The pattern is called Vines ‘n Stripes by Janet Nogle. I used a size 7 needle with Knitpicks Dishie in the Aster color. This was a nice knit.
I started another sock. I am using Fybernymph Dyeworks striped yarn in the snipes and snails color with a size 1.5 needle This is her bounce base. I am revising this pattern slightly for the heel and toe. I’ve been wanting to use a patterned sock using a striped yarn for awhile and I love how this is coming out. I am using the no purl monkey pattern.
I got another skein of sock yarn. It’s Marigoldjen’s Superwash sock in the Seafoam Island color. She is a dyer from PA and I have heard many great things about her yarn from different podcasters, so I thought I would give her a try.
I found a new videocast to watch. It’s the Traveling Sock Knitter. She is a sockknitter and has been knitting quite a bit of shawls (sound familiar?) plus she lives in PA around the Penn State area. I am enjoying it very much.
