A WIP, A Sip & An FO

It's an unusual WIP Wednesday! Though, I have many, may WIPs, most of them are still in hibernation until my arm issues resolve. So, currently I am working on crocheting a cute little bunny with some hand-dyed yarn I bought at YarnCon last month:

Since spinning is another activity I can do while waiting for my left arm to get back to normal, I decided to start spinning the two Foxy Batts I bought in the Yarn Hollow booth at Ply Away last month. Tilly is guarding my first single, and I'll be spinning another to ply with it:
I've been working on self care to get back to my regular knitting routine as soon as possible, and I'm getting closer, but I'm not there yet. Over the weekend, I was able to finish a project that's been on the needles since mid-April, the brioche cowl with 2 colors of Art Yarns Merino Cloud (you can find Artyarns yarn here at Patternworks).

What was driving me crazy about this project is that I only had a few rounds to go before binding off. Unfortunately, last week, I really couldn't knit at all; it was only after getting a massage on Friday (in addition to my many other self care initiatives) that I was able to log a few short, slow knitting sessions to get this off the needles.

Speaking of needles, I get a lot of questions about these whenever I post on Instagram - they are Marblz interchangeables from Knitter's Pride, which you can find here at Patternworks.

  1. O my... The color of the bunny is glorious! I imagine it's even more beautiful in person! Why is it yarn is so hard to photograph accurately?
    I hope your knitting injury gets better soon, isn't it the worst?
