OFF THE NEEDLES

I finished my Rhinebeck Sweater!!!! (aka the Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig)

Also finished one Blueberry Waffle Sock using Quaere Fibres.

I swatched for my Stonecutter Pullover and got a larger gauge than the pattern calls for. Will definitely be going down a needle size.

Using Quince & Co.'s Lark in the Damson colorway.

I will also be co-hosing a Stonecutter KAL with the lovely and amazing Lara from The Fawn Knits Podcast!!!! 


SPINNING

Just dropspindiling a few battlings from Hobbledehoy. Feeling inspired to spin a bunch of these thanks to Carlene of the Made With Carlenergy Podcast
