We had snow this week, but it melted quickly and now we may have snow on Monday, but it just sounds as if it will be snow showers. I am certainly sick of the cold and the snow and hope it starts to warm up soon.
I finally finished one sock using Gnomeacres sock yarn in the I Lurve Ewe color with a size 0 needle. This is the Skype sock pattern. I don’t know why it took me so long to finish just one sock. I guess I have to blame it on too many projects on the needles. I cast on 64 stitches for this sock and it fits snuggly and feels so good. I already cast on for the second sock.
I bought another skein of Lollipop yarn’s striping sock yarn in the Big Kitty color. I liked the colors and how it striped, so I couldn’t resist it.
I cast on right away using a size 1 needle and a basic sock pattern. One sock finished. This flew on the needles. The colors do appear lighter than they really are.
I also purchased 3 skeins of Madelinetosh merino light. I am using this to knit an advent scarf. Not that I don’t have something to use in stash, but my LYS got Madelinetosh yarn in and I couldn’t resist this color. It is called Rainwater. A pretty blue with grey tones. I will be casting on the pattern in early April. Two of my other knitting friends will also be knitting the pattern. I have been partial to grey lately.
