Today is Hippo Day and in acknowledgement I thought this week's cloth should be a hippo. I used another one of Elaine Fitzpatrick's patterns, and as usual, it's a cutie. I've had a soft spot for hippos since I was a kid, so when I seen this pattern I knew it would be just the thing.
I remembered that I forgot to post about last week's cloth. I decided to just do a plain one using my favourite go-to pattern, since it was such a hectic week. Knitting the garter stitch with simple increases is so soothing and easy to remember; just what I needed.
Last night while watching You've Got Mail with my Mom I finished the Groovy Socks. I really enjoyed knitting up this pair. The colours are cheerful and the yarn is super soft. It's like knitting with a cloud. I bet they will feel like little clouds on my feet too.
