Friday the 13th – What’s on the needles?

I just realized it was Friday the 13th.  Hmmm.. and it was a very good day but them I’m not superstitious anyway.

So  Judy’s question is what’s on the needles.  You can see what others are knitting on too at that link.   I’ve still got a multitude of socks on needles but since I finished my Camp Loopy 2 project (I still need to take a photo) I went back to my Harvest Dew socks  and just started the heel flap on the first sock. I love all the texture in these socks and the heel has a bit different texture too than the norm which makes the fun to make (but I’m too lazy to take a photo at the moment).

The yarn arrived for my Camp Loopy 3 project today (I just ordered it on Wed.)!along with another fun Camp Loopy goodie – a retractable measuring tape with the Camp Loopy 2012 logo on it.  I’ll be doing Scalene by Carina Spencer.  I’m going to do the striped version.

This yarn is Three Irish Girls Glenhaven Cashmerino and is oh so very soft with that cashmere in it and the colors are so rich.  The photo does show them quite right – the darker color is more rich dark aqua than the blue it shows up as.  The green has just a hint of shading sort of as if someone took a very dry paint brush with the darker color over portions of the green  – very neat looking –  leaning toward that aqua color so I think they’ll be wonderful together.  Now I just have to wait until the 27th to cast on that project.

The dark aqua colorway  name is “Moon for the Misbegotten” and the green is “Riley.”

You just want to pet this yarn it feels so good.

But today the Stephen West Mystery KAL started on Ravelry.  So the knitting clue was posted and when I came home, I went digging through the stash to find something to use with my Zauberball Crazy Socks.  I original bought the Zauberball to make another Spectra scarf (another Stephen West design) but decided to use it for the KAL and found some Everlasting to go with it.

I’ve already cast on and gotten started but since it’s a mystery KAL – you’ll just have to wait until the last clues have been posted before you get to see anymore of this project.

But quality stitching and knitting time is soon headed my way!  I decided I needed to give myself a vacation so the week after next (my birthday week!) I’ll be on vacation all week with no plans but to do whatever I want whenever I want.  There’s lots of knitting and sewing projects just waiting for me to work on them. 🙂
