Hello from an almost spring-like Cheshire Plain! Today I talk about the Ravelympics and the Knitting Olympics, review my first full mitten pattern and squee over 9 foot of striped novelty yarn:
On the Hooks and Needles: For the Ravelympics I’ve been working on the Chocolate Stripe tunic/dress from Knitting Noro by Jane Ellison…
… and my Poshman Mittens, David Schulz’s Northman Mittens in two colours of Posh Yarn Emily.
I’ve also been producing 12×12 inch squares for the fifth round of NYOBE
(Not Your Ordinary Block Exchange), but I have no photos yet as most aren’t finished, and produced these two squares for a Schuyler Blanket in memory of Juan

Something I really like: Independent hand-dyed yarns. What makes your heart sing? Let me know!

Hello from a sunny Cheshire! In this episode I talk about the danger of discounts, hopes for Spring and how 70,000 people can make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
On the Hooks and Needles: Sparkly Monkeys are done! Hurrah!! I’ve also completed three blocks for my Shuyler Blanket and cast on a new pair of socks (no photos yet).
