Well, you can tell that July is on the horizon. It’s hot outside and I’m inside with the air conditioning. It feels good in here.
I did get more knitting done this week. I finished the Color Affection Shawl. I used Plucky Knitter Primo yarn in Speakeasy, Elmer T, and Minature Lilac with a size 6 needle. I need to block it. I should have done a YO at the beginning of the row, but I didn’t see the notes on Ravelry until I had already started knitting this. I hope it blocks okay. It’s a puckered on the one side. We shall see. I will make another one of these. I enjoyed the knit.
I also started on other projects. I started knitting a sock at the beginning of June, but haven’t made much progress on it. The pattern is Karen’s socks by Monica Jines. One of my knitting friends made this sock and I liked the combination of the cables and lace. I am using Socktopus Sokkusu yarn in lime and basil with a size 1 needle.
I am knitting another monster. The pattern is Ruby the Lovable Huggable Monster by Jenna Krupar. I am using Lorna’s Laces Zombie BBQ yarn in worsted weight with a size 5 needle.
I love two color knitting and already had taken a class, but wanted a refresher. So, I am knitting the Faux Fair Isle hat using Madelintosh Vintage in scarlett and tern. I am using size 7 and 8 needles. Practice makes perfect.
I was watching the Knitgirllls videocast and Leslie was knitting a sock out of Lollipop yarns in the It’s 5 O’clock somewhere colorway, and I had to buy it. I also couldn’t resist getting the USA colorway as well. These will make cool socks.
Off to knit or maybe read or just relaxing on this hot, hot day.
