Insubordiknit ...... Yippeeeeee!!!

I'm going to the Insubordiknit workshop this weekend down in Sarasota. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Spinning funky yarn with great people in a house on the beach. Sounds just perfect! I'll be sure to take lots of notes and pictures and report back. I stayed up late last night making some fun batts to bring with me. Can't decide which spinning wheel to bring (S10 or Julia) so I decided to stop stressing and just bring both. ;o)

Also have some Rocket News coming soon regarding the Florida Fiber In and some possible Rocket Yarn goodies.

Wicked Done!

I can't believe I never blogged about this. I finished my Wicked Sweater and I love it! I still need to get some better pics of it as I had my five year old son take this one and it's not that great. I'm so happy with how the knitting and the colorway of the yarn worked out. I added quite a bit of extra length to the sweater and used a twisted rib for the bottom cuff instead of the seed stitch called for in the pattern. I would definitely knit this again. I'm thinking of making a long sleeve version next.
