Monday the 13th was my birthday. I'm now closer to 40 than 30, but I feel great! I had a wonderful day, with much knitting and relaxing, and even cake and ice cream!
I treated myself to some new yarn! I bought a skein of Malabrigo Twist in Purple Mystery. I can tell you l love knitting with it! It is the squishiest, softest, prettiest yarn I have worked with to date. I love it!! I made a hat, but couldn't finish since I didn't have enough yarn. So I had to go back today and get another skein. That's ok though, since I was able to get the Madeline Tosh I had was eyeing but didn't buy. I bought it today! Here's a photo of my Malabrigo.
I don't have a photo of my Madeline Tosh yet, but I'll get it up soon. Int he meantime, here's my second hat of the year, my hat for February: Chloe. (RAV Link)
Still working on my mitts and my socks for this month. I've been having trouble with the chart on my socks. After ripping back to the cuff for the 3rd time, I found a different heart pattern I could insert and I'm almost to the heel now. The mitts are cruising along, I'll have one mitt done after I finish up the top ribbing and the thumb. I feel very productive this month!
