It’s gonna happen!!

I have purchased both the pattern and the yarn to make Stephen West’s Exploration Station Shawl. I have been dying to make this, and it’s on my 2018 list of goals. It was really hard to pick four colors of yarn. Ultimately I have ordered Cloudborn yarn:

I love the Cloudborn Superwash Sock Twist yarn. It’s what I used for my Naomi Jane Socks.

Now that I have ordered the yarn I’m trying not to second-guess my choice of color combination. I’m sure it will look great… I hope. Fingers crossed.

In unrelated news, everything in my Etsy shop is 10% off for the entire month of February. No coupon needed, it’s automatic.

I’ve also completed another pair of socks. They are just my own sock recipe with the heart chart taken from Susan B. Anderson, which is available for free online here.

These were made with Valley Yarns Huntington in Light Gray Heather. As I have said before, I want to try to complete one pair of socks per month this year. So far I’m right on track. I already purchased yarn (bought Patons Kroy sock yarn because I want to try it out) to make my husband his socks in March. I refuse to start a new pair before the 1st, the way I figure, I can cast-on socks every 1st of the month, work on the socks only until they are complete, then use the rest of the month to work on my larger projects or maybe other small projects. We will see how that goes.

Since I have finished Hannah’s Heart Socks for February I am back to working on Gillian’s Flax Sweater.

That’s it, that’s all I’ve got 🙂 Enjoy your day! Happy Knitting.
