Good morning/afternoon/evening! It is time for a Sunday post. I have some FOs to show you as well as I will introduce you to some new bloggers. Here we go.
Can I just say, this is one of my favorite scarves ever? I love everything about it. The yarn is Kauni and rustic as all get out. It was my first time knitting with it, but I see many more projects in my future. I have seen sweaters knit up with this yarn, but I sweat just thinking about how warm it would be.
A second pair of socks has come off the needles. They are a basic vanilla pattern. One of my knitting goals was to knit more from my stash this year. This Loopy Legends has been in my stash for over three years, so it was a good feeling to cast these off. Bonus they unexpectantly stripes, which you know makes me squee! That is all for FOs, not too shabby.
Getting back to patterned socks, these will probably be the next one's off the needles. This is the second time knitting this pattern. The yarn is from Butterflybush Yarn and the colors are singing to me. What song are they singing to me? Girl on fire by Alisha Keys. Do you ever find certain songs sticking in your head that are inspired by what you are knitting, or am I odd?
As you can see knitting production was up this week, but catching up on all the wonderful blogs was a fail. But I do want to mention some newbies to the knitting blogworld. We all can remember how it was to start a blog and wonder if anyone our there would ever read it.
- My dear knitting friend (guru), has finally started a blog. I have only mentioned to her a million times that she should create one. The theme of her's is documenting her journey of knitting and crocheting through her stash.
- CJ left a comment on my blog and I am glad she did. Currently working her way towards what I am sure will be a fantastic Bee Keepers Quilt.
- Ruth is not new to blogging, but has created a new fun blog. It features many of her adventures of spinning and knitting with her yarn. The socks on her needles have me drooling.
- I may have mentioned Lolly before, but in case I didn't here she is. Her blog is filled with lovely knits for friends and herself.
Aren't they fun? Have you found any new bloggers lately, if so let me know. I would love to check them out.
I am outta here. Enjoy your day and your craft!
