knitting update

This scarf is Ribbed Scarf with a Twist pattern by Ann Budd, designed for the Red Scarf Project. I'm using Colinette Cadenza that I ordered online as it looked like it would match my coat. I wish that I could photograph it to show the colors - jewel-like, saturated, and totally yummy! It's a super-soft merino and definitely worthy of being labeled yarn porn.
This sock is Meilenweit 6-ply Special self-patterning yarn that I ordered from Astrid's Dutch Obsessions. Astrid's prices are always great and she ships promptly.
This is the sock that I'm making for my sister with the medium-weight Socks That Rock Granite yarn that was the fall sock club shipment. I've put it aside for now until we can get together for her to try it on. It looks big to me. I've checked the math repeatedly and it SHOULD fit but I'd rather be sure before going on.
Mmmm.... merino/silk roving from Lisa Souza, Shave Ice colorway . It needs quite a bit of pre-drafting but spins beautifully into fine singles and it's so soft!

I've discovered Lime & Violet's podcasts and I'm hooked. I can hardly wait for each week's broadcast. If you love fiber and have a slightly twisted and irreverent sense-of-humor, this one's for you.

Whew! Enough links for you?

As a dog lover I gotta say they are all gorgeous and look so well cared for but little Pocus sure wins this heart. What an adorable face! You're enticing me with Lisa Souza's roving. I might have to break down and order some soon. Happy Anniversary!
