WIP Wednesday: All of the things.

This weekend's fiber stash acquisitions proved to be a great motivator for my Spinning Spring Training project which I started last week - one pound of Dorper top. I'm nearly to the halfway point, in fact - last night I finished the first bobbin and started on bobbin #2!
I also made progress on my #HKKAL project....which I think had to rip back because it looked wonky. Attempt #2 at the crocheted front of the top is looking much better, however: 

I have even made some progress on my Berlin cowl, though I haven't been working on it very much because I wanted to finish my twisted-stitch hat. I've also been working some long days this week, so this project has been moved to the bottom of the priority list for my remaining craft hours, unfortunately.

Hopefully, you didn't miss my post earlier this week about YarnCon and my interview on the While She Naps podcast. If you can believe it, I have even more big news: I will be this month's speaker at the Windy City Knitting Guild meeting! I'll be talking a bit about social media, blogging, and my work with Stitchcraft Marketing. We'll also be previewing some exciting new yarns during a Knitter's Pride needle tasting - and there will be a TON of prizes to give away!

The meeting is open to non-guild members, so be sure to stop on by! Here are the details:

Location: Conrad Sulzer Regional Library, 4455 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago IL

  1. Exciting news! Also, what does Dorper feel like? I've never worked with it.

  2. Thanks! This dorper is actually pretty soft while still feeling sturdy. The breed actually isn't known for its fleece - they are usually classified as hair sheep (which always makes me giggle), but this particular fiber is from Dorper sheep raised in New Zealand which have been bred for a much softer coat!
