What have I done? Well, I worked on my socks for Tour De Sock...these had a completely different heel construction....they called it an afterthought leg....I worked my fingers to the bone on these and finished on Sunday (9 days).....my submission was somewhere around #420.
Those took most of my time....but I was also able to make another Chemo Hat for Darlene's Niece! First, I got the yarn From England. It is called Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino....this yarn is super soft to me. I used this yarn as the pink and white in my 3 color cashmere shawl and loved it....and I wanted to use something super soft for Cynthia, so I ordered this yarn:
I made the hat in the far left colorway, called Rose Garden (the two on the right are called Ruby).
Antonio loved the hat, so I may have to make him one:
For August, I think I am going to do Curious George.....what bag should I use...1, 2, or 3?
What else have I been up to? Well, casting on 2 new things.....sorry, I just NEEDED some mindless knitting and with Fins and Briochevron cowl (my two priorities) both being 'thinkers', I needed something else. So, I started a Boxy Cape for me and a Ranger Cardigan for my Daddy. The Cardigan is all Darlene's fault (no surprise there) because she is making the same pattern for her hubby, Bruce.
My Boxy Cape:
I think that is just about all that I have......Oh, our Knitter's Gotta Knit 2nd podcast episode is up and we have a giveaway from Yarn Café Creations...I felt this yarn and I had to buy some. I have 3 colors on their way to me (should be delivered today). Jason Voorhees, Just Speckles Pumpkin, and Peach Blossom.....
Our Giveaway yarn is in the Twinkle sock base, called Mermaid Party:
Lastly, I had a mammogram today in a Mobile Mammogram unit....and they gave me a Rose....it was so sweet! Be sure to get your girls checked.....Have a great week everyone!
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
