Wow! Where Did May Go?!

I've managed to finish a couple things:



I'm plugging away at my Opulent Raglan, Punctuated Rib socks (for the Zen String KAL on Ravelry) and Flutter Scarf from MimKnits. I couldn't help myself, I also cast on for Amelia. When the Lorna's Shepherd Worsted showed up, it was too hard to resist :).




FO's And WIP's This Week

Finished Thistle Mist Scarf :


Opulent RaglanGlad to have finished the scarf - the yarn spun up so soft, a real joy to knit with. I heard back from KFI about the "Talula" so it'll be back in the rotation next week. In the meantime, I cast on for the "Opulent Raglan" by Wendy Bernard. I'm using ToshWorsted in the "Fjord" colourway and it's gorgeous, very soft and great stitch definition.Two more sock patterns are in the works. My new series is Dance! The first one is being test knit (yay! and thanks M.), second one is just being translated to proper pattern format.I received the first installment of Yarntini's Semi Solid club and it is the most beautiful, complex, glowing blue I've ever seen. I may just keep this in the basket to pet and admire :).

Yarntini Cabana BoyAnd that's it for today. Ciao!

Happy Beltane, Calan Mai !

No name yet scarf

Working away on several projects. This one is resurrected. The original stitch I chose just didn't show off this gorgeous handspun at all, so it sat in the basket. I think I've found something that works a little better and it's getting lots of love as my "Commute" project. The second photo is the best representation of the colour.

I have a new sock design in the works. I'm really enjoying working on it and looking forward to getting it written up. The yarn is DkKnits "Special Occasion" and it is fabulous to knit with, a little silk and silver never hurt anyone :).

The April Sock clubs have mostly arrived, the Wool Girl April is gorgeous as always and my Yarn Pirate - yummy! (you'll have to take my word until I have a photo). Zen Mama outdid herself this month :) - will have to really think about what will do these beauties justice...
