Finished Projects

Danie finished her handspun TGV! She can tell where her plying improved throughout the skein, but it’s a gorgeous shawlette and she’s happy with how it knit up.

Susie finished her Tan House Brook Shawl and any doubts about the highly variegated yarn in the pattern have been dispelled. She loves it.

Current Projects

Susie pulled out her neglected Hitofude and cast on a pair of gift socks.

Danie worked on her Zigzagular Socks and the most adorable Noodle.

Danie got herself a box of yarn from Knit Picks to make kid sweaters.

Contest

To celebrate the grand opening of Danie’s Etsy shop One Twisted Tree, the girls are excited to announce a contest! To enter to win a project bag, please be a member of the group and post in the contest thread in the Ravelry group what you like to see in a project bag.

Finished Projects

Susie finished her Bramble Fern and can hardly contain herself with the adorableness of this little sweater. She came in just under the Camp Loopy Project 1 yardage requirements, but it brings her Stash Dash 2014 total to 1962 yds.

Current Projects

Danie worked on her Lintilla, and her Zigzagular Socks. She also went cast-on crazy and started a TGV out of her own beautiful handspun, a Featherweight Cardigan, and a Noodle.

Susie worked her Tan House Brook Shawl, and is leaning towards adding an extra textured section since she seems to have the yarn for it.

Enhance the Stash

Susie came home from the festival with a t-shirt from Knit Bah Purl and yarn from Hidden Valley Farm & Woolen Mill, Yarn Geek Fiber Super Geek in Caroline Hershel, and Alisha Goes Around Unicorn Twist in a turmeric/cumin color.

Danie also got a t-shirt from Knit Bah Purl, yarn from Morning Meadows Sundries LLC and  Alisha Goes Around Unicorn Twist in teal and purple, and baby alpaca/silk/baby camel fiber.

Susie finished her second pair of Zigzagular Socks and released the pattern as a free Ravelry download. Her Stash Dash 2014 total stands at 1599 yds. She was so completely wrong and actually has 3869 yds to successfully complete the Dash.

Current Projects

Susie worked a little on her Tan House Brook Shawl, and started her Bramble Fern for Camp Loopy 2014 Project 1. She’s roughly a sleeve-and-a-half in and is greatly enjoying the pattern.
