Here we go, Steelers, here we go! Pittsburgh’s going to the Super Bowl!
Laura is knitting on Washington Square out of New Zealand Aran Wool from the stash. I’m also knitting Urbana by Stephen West for the Selfish Knits KAL. It’s out of Malabrigo Rios in the Archangel colorway. Ishbel is on the needles, but you can’t see it because I forgot it. I’ve also cast on some socks out Twisted Fiber Arts in the Ravelry colorway.
Leslie has had some progress with her spinning and I have finished “the batt that sheds” singles.
Twisted Strands Podcast: Hilarious and not child safe.
Laura is in love with Stephen West and has purchased his Clockwork pattern.
I went to Shrek the musical as a daddy/daughter date. It was really funny!
I got a new book and Magazine. Shetland Trader by Gudrun Johnston is a wonderful little pattern book (Yay Indie Books!). I also got the new Knitscene. There are quite a few patterns we like (sorry that my close ups are a little off).
We love Knitting Without Tears and all Elizabeth Zimmerman books.
We picked up some new stash at Loop in Tulsa, OK. Leslie got some Madelintosh Pashmina in Turquose. I got some Vintage Chunky by Berroco and Be Sweet Bamboo Taffy.
