Falling Leaves Socks, almost done the second sock. This is knit out of Araucania Ranco Multi on size 2.25 mm (US1) needles. The pattern is written for the most part but just a few tech edits remain. Test knitters required, check out on Rav or PM her to see if she still needs someone. Thanks for all the poking on Rav and in person everyone!
EvenStar Shawl, is knit out of Fleece Artist in the Saldahna Two colorway on 3.25 mm (US4) signature needles.
Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman in Three Irish Girls Adorn sock yarn in the Brighton colorway on size 2.5 mm (US1) needles. I am knitting this as part of the Knit Me Happy Ravelry Group Aug/Sept sock KAL. If you have not yet watched Rachel’s podcast you should go on over, she is a really talended lady and has kitties and puppies as part of her show…they are awesome!
On the Wheels:
Still spinning the Ashford Merino silk. Bought a braid from our friend Amanda who is nightandday on Ravelry who also has an Etsy shop Wayside Weeds and Wool. She had amazing dyed yarn and roving as well as gorgeous patterns.
Sue: Kari had to help me adjust the wheel as it was set to spin lace when she had it and I do not spin lace…well right now I am only spinning corkscrews….but hopefully the adjustment helps.
Road trip = Stash Enhancements!!! YAY
We went to the Twist Fibre Festival this weekend and had a great time taking a class from The Yarn Harlot herself on Kntting with Speed and Efficiency. It was a great class and she does a great job.
It was the first year for this festival and it was packed with local vendors and we got some amazing stuff.
