What I'm Making

That is the most dramatic stash-related story I have ever read, and I am old enough to remember when “stash” had a very different meaning that often generated drama! So glad you got it all sorted and are back on track :slight_smile:

Love the colors and the gauge you used on the cowl. Also a nut for cool glasses, and you have those!

As I suspected, the little red hat went rogue on me again. It was lost, then found, then left at my sister’s, then returned, then dropped in the snow, then lost again. Finally found it again this morning. I’m considering putting it a big envelope and pinning it to myself.

Re the MKAL. I did one years ago with a designer I love. And finished the MKAL, even buying the suggested yarn, which I normally don’t do, and it was a bummer! My solution, I now wait to see what the mystery turns out to be. Because I now have a intricate-looking beaded lace “shawl” that would be perfect as a King’s cape for a 3 year-old! I plan on frogging to reclaim the pricey yarn, yet for some reason can’t seem to destroy it. Normally the frog pond is my home.

Thank you so much. All credit to Jennifer at spirittrailfiberworks who dyed the yarns following my inspiration idea. It was a slog, but I love it.

What Im Making? Im working on my new design Edinburgh Cardi, Im having lots of fun moments with this cute stranded work, take a look, pattern will be ready as soon as possible, and yarn kits will be available on my website in June, hand dyed alpaca, ultra soft and great to work with.

Just finished these 3 Stranded Diamond Hats from field guide Merry Making. I received the guide and all the yarn needed for all the patterns from Thea Coleman and MDK in a 2018 giveaway. Great patterns, great yarns! Thank you all for your generosity!

I am working on my first double knit project, requested by my brother. I’m really glad he doesn’t care about when he gets it, as long as it’s done eventually :rofl: I put it on hold while knitting my Isabell KAL sweater, in the hopes that a break will get me back in the double knitting mood!
