Shownotes

Knitting

Rainbow Rib Socks - tore out the heel, put in an afterthought.  I think I’ll like it better.

Sock Yarn Baby Sweater by Hannah Fettig

My Wish shawl has a deadline.  Will I make it?

Got my “Stash Dasher 2011″ pin from The knit Girllls

 

Spinning

BartlettYarns pencil roving in “Mountain Blue”.  First 1/4 done.  It is very neppy/rustic, but it looks great.

Southdown from the sample pack I got from The Spinning Loft.  It is spinning SO WONDERFULLY!  So much finer, more even, and lovey than I’d anticipated.

 

Dyepots

Corriedale fiber: Hope, Happy Jack, Blue Lobster, Just Before Dawn

SW Merino: Roses in HD, Brite’s Rainbow, Loki’s Whim

 

Processes

Lined Beanie is almost ready to be released!  Last test knitter is finishing now.

 

Growth

Will be dropping off a spindle to the owner of my LYS on the coast.  Will also give her a mini lesson; I hope this translates into a paying teaching gig down the road.

 

Grabby Hands

Extreme Double Knitting by Alasdair Post-Quinn.  FANTASTIC book.  I can’t wait to start knitting from this book!
