Finished Projects

Susie finished her Dragonflies Jumper and everything about it is perfect – fit, color, everything! She also finished her Mother’s Day Cast-On 2015 project, her Birthstone Color Affection, and it didn’t turn out too twee at all. In fact, she loves it. Her current stash dash total is 2114 yds out of 5468.

Current Projects

Danie knit on her Mama Vertebrae, and after a slight hiccup on the sleeves, she’s making good progress. She also worked on her Stained Glass Sock Blanket.

Susie worked on her 3×1 Ribbed Socks and is closing in on the toe on the second one. She worked a little bit on her Fork in the Road Socks and her Aranami Shawl. She is in the midst of a son of a stitch with her Bonnie’s Wish in the form of not having enough yarn.

Enhance the Stash

Susie brought home with her yarn from Yarn Geek Fibers – a Rocketeer 5 Pack in The 8th Dimension and a single skein of Rocketeer in Cloud Smiles. She also picked up two skeins from Fiber Curio and Sundries.
