Hela Fnished

Back in April I started the Hela cardigan. I finished it a couple weeks ago and finally got around to taking some pictures.




It is a fun sweater, but will have to wait several months for wearing!

Happy Knitting,

Sock #66 (and #67 Started)

I still carry sock-knitting with me when I travel, most of the time. They're just more portable than sweater-knitting!

I finished Sock #66 on my last trip. Sock #66 is another BFF sock (pattern by CookieA, available in her book, "Knit Sock Love,") this time using Hedgehog Fibres' "Lagoon," a sock club color.



I also started Sock #67, a Monkey Sock by CookieA. It is available in "Knit Sock Love," as well, but also for free on Knitty.com. Sock #67 uses Zen Yarn Garden's "Pistachio." I've just started the second sock. I'm using a picot edging, not the instructed ribbing.



Happy Knitting,

Spinning: Weeks 23 and 24

In week 23, I spun "Pink Dagger" on Merino/Cashmere/Nylon, by Two If By Hand. Two bumps made about 450 yards of dk weight.





In week 24, I started another Two If By Hand roving, "Calavera" on Polwarth/Silk. I have four bumps, and two of them are spun into singles... two to go!





Happy Knitting,
