Work in Progress Wednesday 118
Now onto yarnie goodness:
I had a great time Sunday with my knitting group. I have to say, I was a little disappointed in the fiber festival this year. I think it was much better last year and felt a little cheated that I paid to get in. I did get one thing I wanted! I got a 2.5mm ChiaoGoo needle! I've always wanted to try these and 2.5mm is my favorite size for socks. I picked a 32" cable for it, as I (as you all know) love magic loop. I also got a skein (I know, I know!) of Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock in a colorway exclusive to a shop in Manhattan Beach, CA, Twist! I couldn't resist an exclusive colorway.
You haven't seen this shawl in awhile! This is my Quaker Ridge Shawl out of Tosh Sock in Worn Denim. I was hoping to get beads at the show for the beaded bind off, but the bead booth that was there last year wasn't there this year! I was so bummed. I have two more repeats left and then I think I'll just have enough yarn for the bind off. I love it so far!
These are the Candy Skein November' 12 colorway, Pumpkin Pie, socks I'm making for my husband! I haven't had a chance to work on them too much, as you can see, but I'm almost finished with the first cuff. I really like how it's coming along so far and I hope he will too. He still doesn't know I'm working on it yet!
Last but not least, I have a new hobby. I know, like I need something else on my plate! I recently got the itch to learn how to cross stitch again. Last time I did so, I was probably 10 years old and the only patterns out there were old lady looking patterns. Obviously that wasn't my style when I was 10, and it isn't now! There are some amazing patterns out there for cross stitch now! Who knew!? This is The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery Kawaii Winter Wonderland mystery cross stitch. I couldn't resist. Obviously I'm behind as I've (almost, I just need to add the snow in the globe) finished day 1. I LOVE it so far, but I will say, cross stitch is INTENSE! I was actually SORE this weekend from it and I realize when I do it I don't breathe! LOL I hope you don't mind me sharing this with you, as it's not knitting or crochet.
That's it for me today. I hope you have a great rest of your week!
