Hi everyone! I hope you're having a fabulous day today! I must admit, my days are so mixed up from not only the holiday but my husband's travel schedule. He's been traveling a lot for work, so I have been living my life based on when he's home and when he's away. There's no real ebb or flow to it, so I feel like I'm living in this fake world right now. To make matters worse, I have been traveling a bit myself, and will be leaving again on Thursday (tomorrow). I will not be home for FO Friday, but will try and remember to schedule a post so everyone can participate. If it does not post, it's because Blogger sucks. I won't be around for the next WIPW either, as I get home very late Tuesday night. Again, I will try and schedule a post for you all, but I won't have anything to share. Well, I'm sure I'll have a lot to share, but just won't get around to it.
That being said, I DO have stuff to share with you today for WIPW!
This is the pair of socks I started with the May '12 Candy Skein colorway, Candy Skein 1st Birthday. I think they're going to be too small for me unfortunately, but we'll see in the end. They're 70 sts, so I used a size 0 needle which I never do, but the size 1 needle was too big. Oh well, I'm sure I'll figure it out and if not they'll make a nice gift for someone I'm sure. I'm really happy with how the yarn is knitting up! Don't forget, this yarn is only available until the end of this month (so basically today), so if you're interested in a skein, be sure to purchase one now! I haven't gotten too far on these, as I had to stop knitting on them while my wrist was hurting. Carpel Tunnel mixed with fingering weight yarn and size 0 needles is a recipe for disaster. Oh, I almost forgot! The pattern is Horcrux socks.
This is the shawl I started recently (I think I shared a picture of it last week for the first time). It's using 50% merino/50% tencel yarn from Alexandra's Crafts. I really like the yarn which I purchased at the fiber festival I had a booth at in Oregon last month. I'm hoping to take this on my trip so that I can get to the feather and fan portion of the pattern. The pattern is Multnomah.
That's it for me on WIPW! I'll be posting the Candy Skein June colorway later today! I can't wait to show you as it's one of my favorites! Also, I only have a few more sets of the Ice Cream series minis left! If you're interested in one, you should grab one soon!
