Events

Stitches Midwest is in Schaumburg, IL August 7 – 10!

Finished Projects

Danie dyed not one, but two sock blanks she worked up (with a little help) using Knit Picks Bare Stroll. One is a Broncos-inspired colorway in blue and orange, and the other a rainbow gradient.

Current Projects

Susie worked exclusively on her Hitofude Cardigan, and is hoping to be finished with it very soon.

Danie continued working on her Featherweight Cardigan, and is making steady progress. Her Bramble Fern is in a temporary timeout, so she cast on socks from her Broncos yarn, and is trying a customized toe, and knit a bit on her Spectra as well.

Project Reconsideration

Susie is reconsidering a long-suffering Christmas stocking.

Finished Projects

Danie finished her Noodle, and he’s even more adorable with his appendages attached. She also finished her Zigzagular Socks and decided to put in foot-specific toes. She also dyed the natural yarn she got at Iowa Sheep & Wool a lovely spruce-y, teal-y blueish green color.

Current Projects

Susie worked on two pairs of socks she’s playing around with designing, and motored through the sleeves on her Hitofude.
