  • Geek socks - using Knit Knot Studios Half Hitch sock yarn in the Once Upon a Time colorway, with contrasting heels and toes in Seven Sisters Arts Meridian yarn, Huggin colorway; first sock is finished, and the second sock is just started
  • Portulaca Cardigan - first sleeve is finished, and the second sleeve is just started
  • Benton by Veronica Parsons - using Miss Babs Sojourn yarn in the Berlin colorway, a couple of pattern repeats complete, yarn is a delight to knit, so soft
  • Cladonia by Kirsten Kapur - using Dragonfly Fibers Pixie yarn in the Titania and District 12 colorways, a little over halfway through the number of stripe repeats, but that doesn't mean I'm halfway through this shawl, a very easy and relaxing pattern to knit so far

Miscellany
  • Caterpillar Green's Self Striping Shawl yarn. I am thinking of making the Playground Shawl, but there are a lot of different projects that people make with this yarn. I've been stalking some for about a year now...
  • Sarah Watts' Cat Lady fabric collection - I'm planning to use some of these to make some new cat bowl placemats in our kitchen - I just have to decide which ones and what sort of pattern
  • Next week is Stitches South in Nashville, and I have the privilege of helping out in the Seven Sisters Arts Yarn booth some! Karen is a really sweet and talented person, and I'm so excited to get to spend so much time with her (and her lovely yarn) - my Sea Dragon Shawl and my Be With You MKAL shawl were both knit with her yarn. The colors are so rich and beautiful.
