Finished my Darcy socks. They have had a nice soak. been blocked and are now ready to be mailed to their owner.
Worked just a little bit on the Grainne shawl. See the progress marker? That's all I did this week. I only worked on it for 1 day though and there are over 300 stitches a row. I am ready to start another mesh section. Should get that going this week.
I picked up the log cabin blanket and completed square #2. It is a very easy knit, so easy it is almost boring.
After all that fun, I decided to go and cast on another pair of socks. That almost didn't happen though. I have so many WIP's I kind of felt guilty thinking of adding another project to my needles. Then I realize.......socks aren't WIP's. They are calming, lovely, traveling, small, in your purse projects. So let the casting on begin. I had a hard time choosing between the Car Socks and Petty Harbour socks patterns.
Petty Harbour won. I know the stripes don't match. I tried to match them but.......it would have required gong down 3/4 of a skein to get the matching stripes. They will be under pants so who is going to see them? Hubby has already claimed them as his. This is the first time making this pattern but will not be the last. I am happy it does not ruin the stripes of the yarn. It is a simple 4 row pattern and I already have it memorized. I do like the fact it has a bit of texture and is not plain vanilla. I am hoping to make them long enough for him to wear them in his boots.
It was a great week,even if it was busy. Next week is pretty busy too but there is plenty of down time to knit too. More waiting rooms. July must be health month.
Until next time.............Happy Crafting!
