Socks, Yarn and Zombies

I’ve done so much knitting this week that I may be in a knitting funk.  Let’s hope not.

I finished one sock of the Anne Elliot socks.  I am using Canon Hand Dyes yarn in the Anne Elliot color with a size 1 needle.  I love this yarn.  It is soft and springy.

I also finished one Online sock in the color 1485 using a size 1 needle.  I like how this yarn striped.

I love the Sunshine sock pattern by Cookiea.  I have turned the heel on the first sock.  I always feel that when I turn the heel on a sock, it is almost finished.  I am using Sanguine Gryphon Bugga in the Dragon Millepede color.

Day 4 of the Calendar Scarf is complete.  Only 20 more days to go.  I am using Madelinetosh Merino Light in the color Rainwater with a size 2 needle.  I love the color of the yarn, but DO NOT like this yarn.  It is single ply and not very conducive to beading.  I have 2 more skeins of this yarn in the color tern and don’t plan on buying anymore.  I have to find a project to use  up the yarn when I am finished with this scarf.  The good thing about the yarn is that it takes the dye really well.  The colors are beautiful.

I’m getting closer to finishing up the Mimi cowl.  I love this yarn.  It’s Mimi mink yarn in the color 04 (grey).  I am using a size 7 needle.  The pattern calls for you to knit 21 inches before doing the border garter stitch rows.  I have 10 inches now and will not be doing 21 inches.  That is just too long.  I will probably do around another 5 inches.

I am enjoying working on the Garter Ridge Shawlette using Madelinetosh Pashmina, so I had to buy more of this yarn.  I got Rainwater and Grey Garden.  Now to find projects to knit.

I posted a picture earlier of my Zombie doll.  Here is a picture of two Zombies.  My knitting friend and I knit the same doll in different colors.  They are so cute!
