Are you knitters shocked when you go through your stashes? I was. I thought I might have two or three skeins of yarn to take to the upcoming Knit Social Yarn Swap, but I found a lot more than that.

Should be fun – and I was happy to see that Alexa from Gourmet Crafter has a table and will be selling her lovely hand-dyed yarns.

As a teaser, for the really hardcore: that bag contains quince & co, Jared Flood’s own Shelter, a few Sweetgeorgia fibre club offerings (will I ever have time to spin again?), Cascade, undyed knit picks yarn, and unique hand-dyes from various North American destinations.


I recently finished knitting my first sweater ever. It’s a cool batwing style sweater that I knit in a pretty wool alpaca mix. I learned lots about finishing and seaming…but found I still have to learn about sizing. It’s a few sizes too large, and the chunky wool doesn’t help either. So this sweater won’t be modeled anytime soon, but here’s a peek:

Undaunted, I started on a cardigan called ‘Bianca’ from my favourite Rowan magazine. This one has beads and is knit in a lovely 4 ply wool. Let’s hope I get the tension right this time.
