It’s not as busy at work and I’m now down to working one day a week. I am so happy and will enjoy more time to do what I want to do.
I have been really trying to limit my spending (especially with yarn) and I’m doing pretty well this month. I got my Dancing Dog Dyeworks yarn for Monster Mania Club. This is the last shipment and was a club that I joined last year. The yarn is Waltz Worsted weight in the color Jenna.
This month, so far, I bought Fibernymph Dyeworks stripped yarn in her inversibles striping yarn. The colors are hot cherry pink and silver grey. Each sock is a reverse of the other. I had to try this since it was so different.
Today, I purchased Plymouth Encore worsted in the color 449 to make the Sunny Baby Blanket for my next door neighbor who is having a baby girl in May.
I already started on the blanket today, so I am using the yarn.
I am just about finished with my Zombie. The pattern is Voodo you Love me and I am using Gnome Acres worsted weight yarn (Squishy Gnome) in the color I dream of Zombie with a size 4 needle. Everything is knitted. I just have to sew the arms and legs on and then add embellishments. I think she is turning out very cute.
I finished my Vanilla Bean socks using Lollipop yarn in the Downton Abbey color. I used a size 1 needle and an afterthought heel for this sock. I love the pattern and the color of the yarn. Lollipop yarn is great to knit with.
Since I finished these socks, I started on another pair using Gnomeacres sparkle gnome in the color I Lurve Ewe. I wanted to start these before Valentine’s Day, but it took me longer to finish the Downton Abbey socks. I am using a size 0 needle. The pattern is called Simple Skyp socks. I love the gnomeacres yarn.
I haven’t done much knitting on the Cinnamon Toast shawl, but I need to get back to that. Guess I will have enough time this week to do that. How wonderful is that.
