It was really a nice week this past week. The weather was great. I got a lot of knitting accomplished and met the Stephanie Pearl McPhee.
Monday, the Yarn Harlot came to speak in Bethlehem, PA. She was great! I got to talk to her before it started and she signed one of her books that I had. It was a great night.
In honor of her appearance, I had to take knitting with me and the perfect thing to take was a sock. I used Online Supersocke 100 sock yarn in color 1485. I’m using a basic sock pattern for this sock. I didn’t want anything complicated to knit.
I also started a sock by Cookie A this week. The pattern is called Sunshine and I am using a size 1.5 needle with the Sanguine Gryphon’s yarn in the color Dragon Millipede. I’m liking this pattern.
I also continued to knit on the Anne Elliot socks by Canon Hand Dyes using a size 1 needle.
That’s three pair of socks on the needles. Yikes!
I also finished day 3 of the Advent Calendar scarf. I am using Madelinetosh Merino Light in the Rainwater colorway with a size 2 needle.
Yesterday and Today, I worked on cleaning up the screened in porch with my husband. We also got out the patio furniture. It was a little dreary, but we were able to get everything finished before the rain started. Now, I can sit on my back porch and enjoy knitting and reading. The perfect end to a wonderful week.
