A New Project

Swatching is on the horizon for this one. I'm thinking of attempting a short-sleeved top from the Spring 2011 Interweave Knits: Ruched Yoke Tee by AnneLena Mattison.

I'm thinking of using either Cantata Cotton Crepe DK (100% Mercerized Cotton), or Bernat Soy Natural Blends (50% soy/50% acrylic). Swatching will definitely be required to see if I can get relatively close to the 20sts=10cm gauge required, since neither ball band makes this claim. Yes, this is another stash busting effort. The cotton has been sleeping around in the stash for well over 5 years. Oh my! Time for it to move on.

Check 'Em Out

Because little girls need high quality socks too. Here's Sophie with Grampie modeling some Fleece Artist socks, made with leftovers from my socks. (Not a single knot in her pair!)

At long last, my first born is starting to recognize my obsession with all things farm and sheep related. Proof: He built me a barn and a sheep! How awesome is that!? LOVE!

Did you notice that the Spring + Summer Knitty is out? This is my next project: Corinne. I can't wait to go stash diving!

All Mine!

Three pairs of Fleece Artist socks in as many months. Time to cast on another pair.

I'm trying to reduce my sock yarn stash (an overflowing Rubbermaid tote) so I have an excuse to buy new yarn.
