Currently Knitting


Another Monday! Do you get the feeling that this summer is flying by? I definitely feel like I haven't had time for summer to even start, yet it's half over! Eek! Of course, a lot of my time has been taken up by dyeing and knitting. I really wanted to squeeze in sewing a tunic for myself this month, but I haven't managed to yet.

If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen a million photos of this handspun yarn. This yarn is an absolute pleasure to work with - none of the roughness I've found in a lot of handspun. It's by FiberOlio, and I've been working on it for a super fun collaborative project we can hopefully announce soon. For now, it's hush hush! I finally finished this though, so instead of working on my other outstanding projects, I started a new pair of socks with the yarn leftover from another project. This yarn is my Merino Nylon sock in Persephone.


I know, I have no self-restraint. I've also been making progress on my Sherilyn, which I am knitting for a shawl swap and need to mail out by September 1st! I'm using my Silk Merino sock yarn in Amethyst for this project.

Some day I'll get back to the sweater I'm completely neglecting. I'm beginning to think the whole idea of "summer downtime" is a myth... So what has been keeping you busy these days?
