  • Cast on for socks with Mrs. Crosby and got about 1.5″ of ribbing done on sock.

  • Visit to Knitty City. Bought 2 circulars.
  • More ESK yarn received in the mail. Asked for a drawing of a penguin on my packaging and I got it! So dope!

Week of 1.18.16 : Knitting Review

In community challenges, events, knitting on January 23, 2016 at 1:13 am

1.18.16: I ordered yarn from ESK. I wanted presents again.  I ordered 2 Juniper Moon Farm – Herriot, in color 1026, Inspired By Nature (for regular folks, that’s just green).

1.20.16: Was sick and stayed home.  Did about 1″ of ribbing on my socks.

1.20.16: Ordered more yarn (welp!) from…you know where! I ordered 1 Cascade Eco-Plus in color Pine Needle and Canton (for regular folks, that’s the color of pine needles and a mint green) for this cute sweater. You can’t tell me that’s not FIRE! That sweater is HOT!

I digress, I also ordered Dream In Color – Calm, in color Island, which is reminessent of a beachy feel blue for the water and a touch of sand representing the specs of tan.

1.21.16: Somehow got absorbed into this Carson Throw KAL beginning in February.  The kits are what did me in! Man, those colors just gave me life!!  That Melon colorway though…had me at first sight! Alas! All kits sold out. I’m waiting to pounce though. HOT!!!

1.22.16: Posted on Facebook, an artistic protest regarding the #blacklivesmatter protests.  I was inspired by it.

1.22.16: Got updates on how many hats I would get donated to me from colleagues.

1.22.16: Somehow I felt the need to have animated knitting pictures in my life and I found this to represent my team. It’s too cute!! I know, right?! #teampenguinauts

 

1.22.16: On ESK again looking at more yarn to make baby hats to donate. I’m for some reason really feeling mint green, so I was thinking about, this, this, and this.  This is not the mint green I’m loving, but it’s still green…  It needs to be a gender-conscious all-inclusive color.  The hat pattern I’m using calls for 100 yards per hat.  I want to get the best bang for my buck.  So far, I’m thinking 2 Cascade 220, because I’m getting like 4-5 hats for $20, as opposed to the others I’m getting 2 hats for $20. Feel me?

Thoughts about my super green complication? Let me know.

Deuces!
