That’s all I want to knit right now.
Summer of Socks has started. So I started my “I Love the ’80’s” sock. The yarn is called Red White and Loops from the Tempted Yarn club. The pattern is Sweetpea from Knitty 2007.
It’s ugly. What can I say? I debated frogging this sock, but it’s so bad, I’ll probably wear them with a pair of my collection of clear shoes. I don’t know that I’ll be knitting many socks because my elbow started bothering me almost as soon as I started knitting these. Something about sock knitting just doesn’t work for me. I think it’s much tighter.
Now on to a project I’m just loving.
This is Hyrna Herborgar by Sigrudur Halldorsdottir. How’s that for a name??? I’m absolutely loving this shawl. The book is written in Norwegian. I ordered the book and it was supposed to have come with the English translation. It didn’t and I wanted to start it. So I did a little research online and figured it out. (The English translation showed up yesterday.)
The yarn is Dream in Color Baby, colorway Lipstick Lava. It’s really nice to knit and has a lot of stretch. It’s not a very big shawl. I’ve finished 70 of 126 rows. I’m just going to knit this thing. No beads!!!
I have so many projects I want to do. And I did another bead order early this morning.
I have lots of cleaning to do this week. I have a big event coming up this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. More about that in a few days!
