Be Part of the Revolution

Lexi Boeger, aka Pluckyfluff, made a big announcement on her blog ... a handspun yarn exhibit at Galleri ZINK in Lillehammer. She is looking for people to contribute skeins of handspun yarn. Check her blog post for details. I will definitely be contributing a skein.

Wicked Knit-a-Long

I dyed up some of my new worsted weight superwash merino base yarn to knit Wicked with. A friend of mine has this pattern in her queue as well so we decided we would start our own little KAL right after Christmas. Anyone is welcome to join and you don't need to use Rocket Yarn to participate. I started a thread in my Ravelry group for us to use to post progress and share tips and tricks, etc. You can find the Ravelry thread here. You can also post progress on my Facebook page here if you are not on Ravelry.

Here's the yarn I dyed for my sweater. The skein in front has been reskeined.

More Mini Knits

These are so much fun!

The larger of the two blue socks is knit from the mini sock pattern I linked to a few posts ago. I like the size a bit better than the small one. I think I'm going to add a cuff to it next time.
