Wow! It was 38 degrees out this morning when I woke up. It’s about time Autumn gets here. While I’m not looking forward to winter, it’s nice that it is cooler out.
I have been busy. I finally blocked the High Speed Knitting shawl I was knitting. I used a size 5 needle with Desert vista Dyeworks gradient yarn in the color witches brew. I enjoyed knitting this shawl.
I also completed the Counted Cross Stitch kit I was working on. It’s called BOO! I think he’s cute. Just in time for Halloween.
Now, I have to start another cross stitch project that I want to get finished before the end of the year. Actually there are two, but if I get one completed, I will be happy.
I completed one sock using Kirby Wirby yarn in the color Dangitt..where’s my broom. I just used a basic sock pattern with a size 1 needle. I love this yarn and the stripes.
Then, I started a cookiea sock called Glynis. I am using Shibui sock with a size 1.5 needle in the color 1675 (orange). This is the first time I am using this yarn and it’s been in my stash for awhile. I am really liking it. I am just getting into the pattern now and it looks good.
More yarn came in this week and I believe this is the last of it. I am going to try not to buy anything for the remainder of the year. Let’s see how I do.
First up is Madelinetosh dk in the colors Black Current and Plaid Blanket for hats.
Then, I just had to have Fireweed Dyeworks yarn in the color Russian Fairytale. I can’t wait to knit this up into a sock.
Off to knit on my Glynis sock!
