Another Sylvi Update and Other Projects
January 13, 2017
Sylvi is growing by leaps and bounds. The back is done:
I have the left front done to just above the underarm:
The black yarn on the side marks the increases, and the one in the middle marks what row I started the underarm on.
Pogo the astute feline inspector says they pass and gives them a paw print of approval.
I started some bright, glittery socks just before New Year's Eve.
Everyone needs bright glittery socks What a wonderful world it would be if everyone wore them. The yarn is Plymouth Yarn Stiletto, purchased from WEBS, but it seems they are out of it. I did buy it in their big year end blowout sale. Anyway, the pair is half done, and I start the second sock tonight during my daily TV watching. The pattern is the one that I have pretty much memorized, Classic Socks for the Family by Melinda Goodfellow.
I got a knitting magazine (KnitsceneSpring 2017) and a skein of lovely purple Wildwood Arcadia yarn from my friend Lynne! I started the Ironwood shawl, and it is perfect for the yarn. I love both the pattern and the yarn!
