First of all, I'm still holding on to the sock mojo, so we'll start with the sock progress. I finished Tulip Sock #1. I was using the Hiya Hiya Sharps and wanted to use the same needles for both Right and Left Sock for the SKA Mystery Sock, so I have not cast on Sock #2.
I'm keeping up with the clues for the SKA Mystery Sock. This photo was taken after Clue 2 was completed last week. I have Clue 3 done on one sock and about 6 more rows on the heel flap and heel turn left for the second sock.. Then, I will go back to work on the other socks in progress.
This is the Cookie A's Solfar socks (a sock club pattern from last year). I have not lifted a finger on my pots and garden yet!
And, on Sunday, I cast on Cookie A's Asymmetrical Cables socks from the Sock Knitting Master Class book. It was a bit confusing reading the pattern at first, but once I got it, it was very easy. I would actually knit this pattern again. I have finished the gusset on the first sock. And I started on Sunday night. This photo was taken before the heel flap:
I used Dream In Color Smooshy with Cashmere in the colorway, Electric Mauve. I seem to be in the blues and purples groove lately. I bought some new yarn at 2 recent events. Most of them were from the same vendor! Well, let me show you some photos of Sherpard's Harvest which I attended last week:
First stop was of course, to see Chris from Briar Rose. I keep collecting her yarn. Just haven't used them. Here's Haruni in Worsted Weight - using Briar Rose Fourth of July.
I bought 3 skeins from Ewetopia and will show you later...
It was sunny one minute, and sleeting the next! It was cold and makes a person want to knit!! BAD for the customer, good for the Vendors
I'm so glad I'm not into spinning. Lots of roving.. I will weave before I spin.
These are the Kickapoo sock yarn from Ewetopia.
These 2 other skeins of Kickapoo was from Yarnover (end of April)
and this is a worsted weight:
Well, it was 98 degrees yesterday I actually thought of snow! :) I guess Summer is here.
