WIPS & SIPS

I had a very productive holiday weekend! Not only did I start my crocheted Spikey the Stegosaurus for the Spud & Chloë/FreshStitches CAL....


...I also made some progress on the chevron yak socks which have admittedly taken the backburner these last couple of weeks - I'm just about ready to start the first round of gusset shaping!


I indulged a bit of startitis and started a Little Luchador from 50 Yards of Fun - it's a gift for Tyler's boss, who helped me secure a day off in secret for my birthday gift to Tyler (I bought him tickets to the Beer Camp tour that'll be visiting Chicago later this month!).


Finally, I have been spinning up a storm for #TeamSasquatch for the Tour de Fleece!

Days 1-3 were spent spinning two BFL singles: on the left is some green, gold and grey BFL from Yarnhollow and on the right is some green and brown BFL from Anzula.


I'd been intending to ply them together from the start, but then I started to second-guess myself. I'm not sure why....but I definitely had some moments of agonizing before I finally just went for it and started plying these onto my bulky flyer on the Ladybug. So far, I really like how they look together!

  1. Those look really great together! I'm jealous of all your spinning time.
