Life has been getting in the way of my regular blog posting cadence lately. I assure you I have not stopped knitting though. Here is a quick update with a few of my latest works in progress:
Pattern: Sherman by Ysolda Teague in the Whimsical Little Knits 3
Yarn: Serenety 20 by Zen Yarn Garden 70/20/10 Superwash Merino/cashmere/nylon. This yarn is so exquisit to work with. It was my splurge buy at Stitches West this year, and I am so glad I went for it. Well worth the money.
Color way: Flamenco
Needle size: 2 US
This will be the first socks I make for DH, who assures me he doesn’t want socks, but I’m making them anyway because he always has cold feet at night and tries to warm them up on my feet which happen to be two small heaters.
Pattern: Plain sock, 2×2 rib for about 1 1/2 inches at the top, stockinette everywhere else, planning an afterthought heel on this one. LOVE the way the yarn is knitting up.

And what do we have here? A new lovely addition to my fiber family… Can you guess what this is???? It’s a spinning wheel!!!!!! I’m loving it. I’ll do a post on this bad girl another time, but for now, enjoy this sneak peak of a lovely Pigeon Roof Studios 35%silk/65%super wash merino fiber spinning in progress 🙂 I love Pigeon Roof Studios fiber, it’s what I made my memory cowl yarn from as well. Her colors are amazing!
