Lined Beanie for my husband – had to re-knit a bunch of bits.  Finally, it fits!

Nothing else from last week got love.

Cthulu Mittens – started on a US 2; too tight.  Will try again with US 4s.

 

Spinning – nada


Dyepots

Great update last week!  The largest number of packages I’ve sent out in a single update.  Awesome!  Great to see new names.

Grabby Hands

BUTTONS!  Got them from purebuttons.com.  If you’d like one, they are available in the shop.

Knitscene Magazine

Trifecta of Yarn shipment #2 from Fibernymph.  Gala Red and Apple Festival.  Two skeins of worsted in the “cozy” base.  Lots of other goodies, too; pretzel, pickle pin, and dyed buttons that match!  So clever it kills me.

Romney locks dyed with natural dyes, and WOLLMEISE!  from my friend Loribean.  Colorways is “Blue Ink” we’re different in 100% merino.  LOVE IT.

    Thanks for a great podcast. Tinte in German is “ink”. Are you going to show the process of working with the fiber from your friend on your website too?

    Thanks for letting me know about the “tinte” Blue Ink sounds much cooler than Blue Tint! I plan on adding the romney locks and the Icelandic I bought to the fiber study. I hope to get back to working on the posts for that soon. I miss posting and researching and photographing the breeds/process!
