|Roman Candle Socks|
The name of the game this month has been SIMPLE....with SELFISH following closely behind. Exhibit A: I finally finished the malabrigo socks I started last October! I'm not sure when the pattern is coming out - it was a test knit for an upcoming design from Two Sticks and a Sheep - but whenever it does, you'll be able to purchase it with the rest of the Fireworks and Folly eBook patterns. Fun fact: Botticelli is the first skein of Malabrigo sock I ever purchased - I think I bought it at the first Stitches Midwest I attended!
|Robin loves it, despite its flaws.|
I'll try to post a better photo soon, but this one I took right after finishing the bind off that I swear isn't posed is too adorable and must be shared with the world. Both Robin and Tilly enjoy a good hand-knit....sometimes, a little too much!
|The Age of Brass & Steam...|
Finally, the handspun that has been calling to me for several months now has transformed into a triangle shawl - namely, The Age Of Brass & Steam, which has been in my queue for several months now. I cast on for this fast-knitting shawl the night we got home from Orlando; five days later, I bound off just as the plane touched down in Phoenix. It's been keeping me warm for these last bitter days of January ever since. I have lots of yarn left over, too - I think a nice, warm hat is in the works.
