Actually Finished

I finished a 2018 Winter Olympics Hat for my stepdad

 I finished re-knitting Ravello, and still don't like the way it fits, so I sent it to my niece for her birthday

Actually Working

I'm experimenting with socks that have after thought toes and heels

I ripped out the Marled Magic Sweater and I'm re-knitting it as the Marled Mania Sweater and I'm much happier with it, and I think I will wear it more

I'm working on a Big Wave tank in some Brown Sheep Synchrony I received to review:

Synchrony is a brand-new twist on Brown Sheep yarns, in a multicolored blend of 60% cotton and 40% wool. This playful blend is great to wear and perfect for accessories and kids’ clothing in DK weight.

I attended the MJ Yarns moving sale and bought some of his American Worsted and some Tough Ram Fingering

I received some beautiful review yarn from Manos Del Uruguay / Fairmount Fibers, 

This season-spanning blend of pima cotton and baby alpaca has fantastic drape for scarves, wraps, cardigans, and summer tops.  The fiber blend and our kettle-dyeing process give the colors a heathered, stonewashed look.  Although it’s labelled as a sport- to dk-weight yarn, Serena’s gauge is very versatile, from 4 1/2 sts per inch all the way to 7.
