Well, I guess that is summer for you. At least it’s not raining, but now I am back to watering my flowers outside.
I finally finished the Quaker Ridge Shawlette. I love this shawl. The beaded bindoff really makes it shine. I am so happy with the beads that I got from Earthfaire. It took time to do the bindoff, but it was worth it.
Day 7 is complete on the 2011 Advent Calendar Scarf. 17 more days to go.
I finished two socks. One sock in each pair. The first sock in the Dizzy pattern from CookieA is complete. I used a size 1 needle with Alisha Goes Around Richness fingering in the Genevieve color.
I also finished the first sock using the Socks on a Plane pattern by LaLa. I am knitting this sock top down vs toe up. I ended the pattern with a cable row and then started the toe decreases. I love how this looks on striped yarn.
The only yarn I got in was 2 skeins of Bugga from the Verdant Gryphon. The color is Pandorus Sphinx Moth. I saw this color awhile ago and regretted not getting any. I bought 2 skeins because I have so many 1 skein yarns that if I need more yardage for a pattern, I always have to go outside of my stash and buy it.
Off to knit for the day!
