Yarn Along......

8:53 AM

It has been a busy week........very full of fun and of course a little bit of knitting and spinning!

I cast on for something new yesterday! I have been wanting to start Haligarth ever since I first saw it on Ravelry. I am using some alpaca fingering in a warm cozy brown. After casting on and getting about 20 rows in I was not happy with the very loose yarn overs and so I ripped back and started again but knitting through the back loops of the yarn overs this time. I am much happier with the fabric now and I know once it is blocked those yarn overs will bloom beautifully!

I also cast off and had a photo shoot of this great sweater! It's a test knit for Sezza Knits and it's called Umberto. You can read my blog post all about it here.

I am also gearing up for the Tour de Fleece!!! It starts this weekend! I will be spinning for 3 teams and I hope to get alot of fiber spun up! Here is my pile of yummy fibers that I will be diving into!!

I am still knitting away on my Jaywalker socks......they are a great project to take to the lake where we go to hang out and cool off! Here is my view as I relax and watch the kids........

Summer is in full swing and we are getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July on Friday! Barbeque's swimming and poolside knitting are definitely in my future! Happy knitting everyone!!!

  2. your fourth will be my fourth but minus one kid. I'm okay with that. Love the shawl and what a clever solution, I would have dropped a needle size. Next time I'll try through the back loop!
