I really enjoyed this week. The weather wasn’t too bad and I was able to relax, knit and read.
I blocked the cinnamon toast shawl that I finished. I love how this shawl turned out.
I started another sock. I got the Lavender Fields striping yarn from Lollipop yarns and had to cast on for a sock. I am using a size 1 needle with a basic sock pattern. I think I will do a heel flap for this sock rather than an afterthought heel. I love the colors.
I did order some yarn. I got the Loopy Ewe Mother’s day kit. Actually, I ordered it for the mug, but the yarn is nice. It’s Julie Spins glimmer yarn in Tuscany. I also got a notepad and stitch marker. It is a nice package.
I started the 2011 calendar scarf. My friends and I are doing one pattern per week. This pattern calls for beads and it’s the first time I am knitting something using beads. I am broadening my horizons by trying something different. Pictures coming next time.
