Susie’s progress on her Oh Scrap Blanket has slowed, but she did finish another square and she started a test knit for Lucia of the Pearl of the Pacific video podcast. She also cast-on a new cowl design using Yarn Geek Fibers Maven DK in the Boxcar Gallery colorway, as well as Threshold using Sun Valley Fibers Merino Cashmere Silk 75/15/10 Fingering in the Interlude colorway. She also worked on the previously-not-mentioned 4th Birthday Socks using Another Crafty Girl Strong Sock in the Tickle, Tickle colorway. She’s digging the tweaked design so much she’s already planning a pair for herself using One Twisted Tree Prime in the Frozen Forest of Dean colorway.
