Mojo.

I’m in a lovely mood of finishing things and starting new things all over the place. My knitting mojo is raring to go.

To start off, I finished my seventh pair of socks for the year. This yarn, BAERfoot sock from Baerenwolle, is the squishiest yarn I’ve ever knit. I felt the same way when I knit my sockhead hat. The socks feel so soft and squishy and lovely. Plus the colorway… that color combo, man.

In related news, the leftovers from the socks are headed straight for my Marled Magic Mystery Shawl. I finished clue 1 and got started on clue 2. I’m not in a rush, but it is a fun project to pick up when I feel like playing. In case you’re wondering, the yarn is currently being carried around on the lid of my scrap bin. It seemed fitting.

At the moment, I am positively vibrating with anticipation over the first installment of the Shawl Society II. The pattern comes out Thursday, May 4, but the other day Helen released the name of the shawl, the Fairyhill Shawl. I love it and cannot wait to get started. I’m so excited that I made my Fairyhill Shawl a shiny new project bag:

The bag is from the Lined Drawstring Bag pattern from Jeni Baker. I love this pattern. The free tutorial takes you step by step through making the bag but I do think it’s well worth purchasing the full pattern for all of the different sizes. Jeni’s patterns are very well written and so well thought out. I made the project bag size, which is a nice 2-skein bag.

As if all of this isn’t enough on my plate, I’ve balled up some minis to get started on some birthday socks for Joshua’s birthday. They will be quite scrappy, using a set of My Little Pony minis from Vivid Yarn Studio. The set is called Friendship is Magic:

L-R: Rarity, Applejack, Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. (I only knew Rainbow Dash, had to consult the kids for the rest)

I’m also casting on my next pair of revival socks. I am having so much fun knitting and making these days, the bright sunshine has really livened up my motivation!

    I was also aware of Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie…. but until today I figured there were only three My Little Ponies. I look forward to seeing how you combine all the Friendship Magic yarn!

    All your projects look enticing. I am interested in learning to knit socks. Perhaps I will search our a class or knitting group in my area. Love the drawstring bag too! Thanks for sharing your MOJO!
