Summer is coming to an end

I am still reading and knitting.  I did finish two projects.

The first is the Zig Zag sock.  I used Fleece Artist basic merino sock yarn in the color Rainforest with a size 1 needle.  I really love the sock and the color.  Sorry that the picture is dark, but the color is a dark green.

I also completed the Antarktis shawl using Araucania Italia Multy in the color 1001 with a size 5 needle.

I enjoyed knitting this shawl so much that I can on for another one for a gift.  I am using Shalimar Breathless in the color scarab with a size 5 needle.

I also cast on another sock using a basic sock pattern with Must Stash perfect sock in the color Night@ the Roxberry with a size 1 needle.  This is a self striping sock yarn.

I did have to buy more self striping sock yarn.  I just love Desert Vista Dyeworks yarn, so I bought 3 colors.  Fireworks for the Fourth of July in the Zien base (a sparkle yarn), Harold’s purple crayon, and If they kill Abraham in her Viso base.

Then, I couldn’t resist more Hazel Knits Artisan sock yarn in the color Tastes like Purple.
