What We're Working On (a.k.a. WIPs):
Pattern: Building Blocks Shawl by Stephen West
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Sock in "851 Turner", Hedgehog Fibres Sock in "Sorry Not Sorry", Dizzy Blonde Studios Dizzy Color in "Snot Monster", Hedgehog Fibres Sock in "Silence"
What We've Finished (a.k.a. FOs):
Kristi finished a set of silk knotted mala beads for her friend Rebecca's birthday.
What We Couldn't Resist (a.k.a. Stash Enhancement):
- Dana picked up her umpteenth skeins of squishy of SW Sock Sport from The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For, in "Garnet", "Autumn Gold", "Espresso", and loveliest of all "Mountaineer".
While checking out the new LYS Cheers to Ewe, Dana picked up a skein of a new-to-her yarn, Queensland Collection Rainbow Beach in "117 Sundance".
Because her grandma asked for a hat in this specific yarn and color way, Dana picked up a skein of Plymouth Yarn Reserve Worsted in "104 Celes-Teal".
Dana's grandma very kindly spoiled her with a skein of Kimarie's Knit Knacks Brazos Fingering in "Area 51". This and the Plymouth Reserve Worsted were picked up while on a trip home, at Knit 2 Together in Russellville, AR.
- Kristi got her special order of Walking Dead inspired yarn for the Find Your Fade Shawl from LB Art Yarn.
Kristi was inspired by Dana's 3 Color Cashmere Cowl so she picked up some gorgeous cashmere at The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For.
Kristi and Dana checked out a new LYS Cheers to Ewe and Kristi got a sweater quantity of Berroco Remix Light for a great price.
Last but not least, Kristi took a work trip to Denver and found a LYS called Colorful Yarns that was new to her and full of indie dyers. She picked up 2 skeins of Meadowcroft Dyeworks and a skein of Abi Grasso's self striping Sock Monkey.
