I Won!

Ok... so I won like two and a half weeks ago. My name was drawn for Brediculous Yarns February giveaway. My prize was the lovely Candy Hearts fingering yarn!

It's so pretty! It's superwash merino and nylon. It's incredibly soft and squishy. And it smells good! (Weird thing to point out? Maybe, but I've gotten a yarn recently that smells very strongly of vinegar...) I'm trying to come up with the perfect pattern for it. I know it would make great socks, but I really want to make something more visible with it. I knit up a swatch and it's just gorgeous.

I've been thinking about a shawl, but I'm having trouble finding the right pattern to really show off the yarn. I think I might need to find a second skein of a more solid yarn to go with it. Ideally I'd like to find a goldenrod yellow color. I think that would go really well with it.

Oh darn! I guess I need to go to the store...

I know it's been almost a month since my last post. In my defense I started a new job so that has thrown things off a bit. However, I think I'm finally getting into the swing again. I certainly don't think I'll be as prolific as I was in January, but I am still trying to knit every day.  I am way better at updating Instagram so feel free to head over and follow me there. Link is on the left.

I've spent most of this month working on the two MKALs I participated in.  I finished the Winter's Whisper shawl this week. I just need to find time to block it out.

I'm a couple clues behind on the socks. They go much quicker though so hopefully I can catch up this week. I think there's only one or two more clues to come in that.

We're heading to see a show tomorrow that's a bit of a drive away. I think I'll make The Boy drive so I can knit!

January Monthly Update

January was chock full of knitting for me! I'm really happy with how much I got done. I think I managed to knit every single day. That is exactly what I was going for. I finished a bunch of projects. I started a bunch of projects. I ignored a few projects... Hopefully, I'll have fewer ignored projects next month.
