Did your team win?

Hi guys!  Did you watch the Super about an exciting and emotional game!  I was cheering or Matt Ryan and the Falcons...but I do like Tom Brady and the Patriots....I just kinda wanted the Falcons to pull it off, and they almost did.....lots of records made with this one.  First Super Bowl to have a comeback from being down 21 points and first Super Bowl to go into!

Okay, on to the knitting:


For February I am doing a variegated yarn.....called Melted....I love the colors!

and I love how it looks all caked up!

Here are the start of my toes:

And while we are talking about socks and the DVD monthly sock club......I got my free skein of yarn an DVD Logo bag for posting 100 instagram posts last year!  I picked the Black Forest Cake colorway.  DVD has a colorway called Jack and Coke, but she does not dye it anymore, it was an SSK exclusive, so this Black Forest Cake was pretty close to Jack and Coke...and the red in it also reminds me a little of my new car (I guess I am turning into a red freak all because of my car.....LOL)!

I finished the Knitted Sock Mug to match my car....this cup is a little more snug than Darlene's but it fits under my Keurig!

 Oh, I started my secret project with that Kauni yarn...I am kind of mad at the yarn...I bought this yarn because of the gorgeous burnt orange in the yarn (bit surprise there)...however, I wound this yarn and the yarn has a knot in it and it changes yarn direction so this burnt orange on the outside of the cake is the ONLY orange in the whole goes light orange, burnt orange, light grey, dark gray, brown, then to light orange again and when it is supposed to got to burnt orange, it goes brown, dark grey, light grey and ends.......GRRRRRRR

I am not sure I will be able to show anymore progress on this...but here it is started:

 I worked on my Fade and have started my 6th I just need my 6th and 7th color...I am over 70% done.

Lastly, I started a Mystery KAL.  It is by Helen from Curious Handmade and it is called The Snowmelt KAL.  I am not even 10% done (the designer does percentages like I do....I love it!)...but I am enjoying the pattern so far.  I am using my yarn I got from my great friend Ruby.  I was going to make Convergent with this yarn, but this yarn just talked to me and told me it wanted to be in this Mystery!  Thank you Ruby for this fabulous yarn!

Well, that is all the knitting I have.  I did get a little bit of the house ready for my friend coming from Canada in 1 1/2 weeks.  I have a donation truck coming tomorrow so I cleaned out some closets and a couple of boxes from the garage.

I also worked on Paige's sweater, but just the sleeves...I will take a picture next week.

Well, that is all I have this week.  Here is precious after her grooming...she is so cute:

 Here she is this morning before I leave....looking at me like "Either take me with you or I am going to lay on your quilt all day."  LOL

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
