What a lovely week filled with hours of knitting time, a bit of cooking and reading. One of those weeks where you think to yourself there is so much to love in this little virtual knitting community in which I reside. So much to be grateful for, to appreciate and enjoy.
Pattern~ Hermione's Everyday socks Yarn~ Knitpicks chroma twisted in the color Dear Diary.
First up, I finished these socks. What an absolute treat to work with this yarn, it was soft in the way Knitpicks yarn often is and then you had the twist which made it almost feel like handspun. Bonus two of my very favorite colors in one skein of yarn...dreamy! A finished object always brings happy into one's day.
NanoStitch Laboratory sock yarn in the color Alkaloid.
These socks which I cast on about the same time as the above are finished. They are blocking no photo yet. So that is two FOs in a week!
Yarn~ Fondant Fibre BFL sock yarn in the color Harmony
A new project is going to be cast on today for the My Sister's Knitter's Ravelry group. Our current KAL is Nature themed. If you would like to join in on the fun come see us here. This group is something beyond my wildest dreams, if you are looking for positivity, encouragement, friendship this is the group for you. I may be biased, my it is 100% true.
One of my dear friends Jody, founder and editor of knotions has launched a wonderful new publication called ShawlStar. I will talk more about this publication next week, but it is being mentioned because it is Jody's birthday today and I wanted to send a shout out to her. You see despite Jody being one of my closest friends, we have never met in person. This is what I am talking about when I say how brilliant this community we create in is. Happy Birthday to you my beautiful, talented and strong friend!
Two podcasts that I have been enjoying this week and wanted to share-
Cocktail Hour at the Coop- hosted by Leanne and Liz. I know it has been said before, but I really feel like I am sitting in a knitting group chatting with dear friends. Don't even get me started on how much I love their accents.
Earthtones Girl podcast hosted by Denise. Talk about someone who exudes their wonderfulness via a camera. Denise is like butter talking about yarn, soothing and with great topics/projects.
I believe one could never be bored in this community. We have gorgeous yarns to play with while being able to support small businesses, podcasts to listen to for entertainment, a Raverly community that allows us to join group that cater to our likes (books, movies, cooking, sports, etc..,...). I could go on and on about all the great resources we have within our reach, all dedicated to our craft. All this is what makes my knitting life so happy.
Please enjoy a song and have the best day today!
