February knitting

A very good start

February promises to be a very good knitting month.

I cast on three new projects. Yeah, just three. It is only the fourth of February after all.

A sock of course. This is New Year's Day Socks done in colorway Hedwig from Sunshine Yarns. You should check out her wonderful array of sock yarns. I want one of each!

An entrelac vest in Noro Silk Garden Lite. This is a Noro pattern that I have had for some time. Finally Noro came up with a colorway that I like. Several of us at the Yarn Barn are doing this vest.

And a little cotton dress for Granddaughter Ingrid. The pattern is a Louisa Harding, but the yarn is Debbie Bliss pure cotton. Since Ingrid lives in Austin, Texas, a cotton dress seems more practical.

That should keep me busy for a while.

Yesterday we had a pre-Superbowl knit-in at the Yarn Barn.

Plenty of food. Plenty of knitting. We showed off our Noro socks.

And admired the progress on the entrelac vest.

A good time was had by all.

Keep those needles clicking!
